When asked which women-led films Rani has been inspired by while growing up, Rani told Pinkvilla, “There are so many films. Whether you pick up any films of Nargis ji, or Nutan ji, or Rekha ji. They are all wonderful films because they all have portrayed Indian women in the true sense. I like to portray an Indian woman on screen because we are beautiful inside out, we are strong, we are passionate, we have compassion, we are kind, and we are very forgiving.”
Rani Mukerji said that a lot of things make Indian women very beautiful and that over the years, actresses have performed some really wonderful roles. “Over the decades, actresses have come and performed such wonderful roles, and played such wonderful characters. And it's in our history. Rani of Jhansi ko hi le lo. Toh you know, every woman in our history, they have always been so special. So it’s amazing to be able to portray so many different characters from our Indian stories itself,” said Rani Mukerji.
