Rani Mukerji on losing her father
Rani Mukerji told Bollywood Bubble, “After I lost my dad, I think there has been a shift in the understanding that how important that time is that you spend with your parents. Because, it is never enough for a child.” During the interview, Mukerji remembered how her dad was always there by her side in her highs and lows.
When asked about the memory of her dad that she carried with her in Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway. Rani revealed, “So, in this film, these actors who you see from Bengali cinema. They all are part of my father’s films. So, it was quite surreal for me to be able to spend time with them and speak about my dad.”
The actress added, “And, in a way, I feel, my dad lingers on with me everytime. Because, I still believe that he’s around me and his blessings are there. But, with each new film that I do after my dad’s passed away, specially Hitchki. It was the first film I did after my dad passed away. These films will always be incomplete for me because these are the films that my father could not see. And I would always be curious to know what he would have felt.”
