Rani Mukerji added, “And actually at that time. Coming into the film industry was not the way it is today. I think, going into the films today, for a lot of youngsters is looked upon as something very cool. But the time that I was growing up and the time that I came into films, I don’t think getting into films was looked upon as ‘the choice’ or a career option. And I think it was more looked upon as people who are actor’s children, people who are more into it are more inclined to it.

Rani further went on to share how Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit were goddesses for her. She even mentioned what an experience she had watching the actresses perform while she was growing up.

The actress finally spoke about how her 25 years in Bollywood have been. She said, “These 25 years have been amazing.” And Rani added, “I’m just hoping and I’m praying that my audiences just want to see me 25 years more.
