I try to merge into any role that i play

Rani Mukerji has always had a strong connect with the audiences and the actor believes people find her relatable because she never brings her real- life persona on screen. In her new film Hichki, which is her first after the birth of her daughter Adira, Rani plays the role of a woman who does not let her speech disability come in the way of achieving her dream of becoming a teacher. “Whenever I play a character in a film, I try to remove Rani Mukerji and emotionally connect with the part. If a person sitting in a cinema hall can forget who you really are and believes you are the character, that’s the real victory for an actor,” Rani told PTI in an interview. “I want people to forget that they are watching a Rani Mukerji film and get invested in the character,” she added. The actor said she has always been attracted to complex roles and this was one of the main reasons to accept Hichki. Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma, Hichki" will release across India on February 23, next year..
