Rani speaks her mind out

In an industry that has often viewed a female actor's marriage or motherhood as a dead end to her career, Rani Mukerji is happy to be at the forefront of driving change. With Hichki having received a positive response from the audience, the actor, mother to two-year-old Adira, says the film's success has dismissed the notion of married female actors not finding takers in the audience.

Speaking to the media, she says, "I think the definition of success with this film, is the fact that it has broken the perception that married actresses, or actresses who are making their comeback after motherhood do not work and are a dead commodity. After this, I hope more women come out and work in movies."
