Ravishing Rani Mukherjee, was born to singer Krishna Mukherjee and film-maker and owner of Filmalaya Studios Ram Mukherjee in Kolkata, West Bengal on March 21st, 1978. Mukherjee's brother Raja is also a director and producer. She is the niece of the popular national award wining actress Debashree Roy. Her cousins Kajol Devgan and Ayan Mukherjee are an actress and a film director-writer respectively.

Rani did a cameo in the bengali film “Biyer Phool” in 1992. And she debuted in Bollywood with “Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat” in ' 97. The film failed miserably, and in the next year, she managed to deliver a superhit film “Ghulam”. Since then, Rani acted in films like “Kuch Kuch Hota Hain” (KKHH), “Nayak”, “ Saathiya”, “Chalte Chalte”, “Yuva”, “Hum Tum”, “Black”, “Bunty Aur Babli”, “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” (KANK) and “No One Killed Jessica”.

She won the filmfare best actress award twice and was nominated for the same five times. She is 5 feet 2 inches tall, with light brown eyes and a husky seductive voice.

This dusky bombshell was believed to have an affair with Abhishek Bachchan while both were shooting for KANK and Bunty Aur Babli. She was also romantically linked with Govinda during the filming of “Hadh Kar Di Apne”. But, the strongest buzz was that of her's and Aditya Chopra's affair.

Rani's forthcoming films are Nagesh Kukunoor's “Bemisal”, Reema Kagti's untitled film opposite Aamir and Tarun Mansukhani's “Koochie Koochie Hota Hain”.
