Can’t take personal journey as mother into the film: Rani Mukerji

Actress Rani Mukerji is nowadays celebrating the success of her newly released film, Bunty Aur Babli 2.

In her real life, Rani is a mommy to Adira and one may think if it helped her to undertake the role. However, the actress refuted it in a recent conversation.

In a talk with Mid-Day, Rani said, “When I play a part, I don’t play myself emotionally. I feed off the emotions and turmoil of the character. I can try and put myself in her place, and bring to screen her pain. As an actor, I cannot take my personal journey as a mother into a film. The story is not mine. I borrow emotions from my roles, and portray them to the best of my ability.”
