It won't be wrong to say that Rani Mukerji has definitely been one of the most relevant actors of today. In fact, in the last 20 plus years in the business, she has dabbled with several genres and excelled in most. With Mardaani 2 releasing tomorrow, Rani sat with us for an interaction. 

One thing that has constantly been spoken about is Rani's voice, which is huskier than any other heroine. The actress explains that she's had her own fair share of struggle with it too. "At the time I started doing films, I don't think there were actresses who had a husky voice like mine. They were all quite sweet and shrill. I never had a sweet voice and it was very different for an actress to have such a voice, especially for a debutante. Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat was my own voice. But in Ghulam, my voice was dubbed because collectively, the team felt my voice wasn't good enough for the role. I had to sacrifice my soul and voice for my part in Ghulam."

But she also adds that were other filmmakers who were extremely supportive of her and gave her the necessary push. "Luckily for me, there was somebody like Karan, who was debuting with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. He came up to me and said, "I heard your voice is getting dubbed in Ghulam, because Ghulam and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai were happening at the same time. I told him they believed my voice was not good enough and it's okay. I told him I dubbed for the first film. He said he loved my voice and wanted to maintain my voice in the film. Thanks to him and that Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was such a mainstream film, and a big blockbuster, that people accepted my voice in the film. Somehow, my voice has become my identity today," she smiles.
