Rani Mukherji on nepotism: When I got into films, my dad wasn’t a very successful producer or director


“My mum wanted me to be an actor, I actually agreed to her wish. My father was very against my mum’s wish. “I told my mum she should reconsider as I will make a fool of myself. But I can always try for a second child,” Rani said at the India Today Conclave East 2017 on Friday. When I went for the first day of the shoot for Hichki, I found it so easy. People have come from non-filmy background and made it big in Bollywood.”
On her next film Hichki, she said: “The two years’ break I took for my baby, I told my director I might not do it. I asked him I don’t know if I can act. I can’t have a huge family as I think I have missed the bus. On the issue of nepotism, the daughter of late filmmaker Ram Mukerji, said: “I wouldn’t say I had a soft landing. We have to sweat it out and work in all kinds of environment and wait for the audience to accept you or not accept you. Related News
