Hichki actor Rani Mukerji turns a year older today. Though Rani is not celebrating her 40th birthday, she has shared a heartfelt note for her many fans who have wished the best for the actor on her special day. The letter signed in Rani’s name has been shared on the social media handles of Yash Raj Film. Rani is married to YRF’s head honcho Aditya Chopra.

The first segment of the letter has Rani thanking the filmmakers who gave her such roles which helped her carve a niche in the industry. She writes, “Very rarely do we artists get material that can genuinely cause social change, cause change in attitude and thinking and I have been fortunate enough to get such content multiple times. I truly feel blessed. I thank all the film-makers who have trusted me with their characters. Your characters, your films, became my identity.”

Moving ahead, the Hichki actor mentions about the struggles a woman artiste faces in the male-dominated industry. She also highlights the point of marriage and motherhood being the dead end for a female actor. “As a woman, I must admit, it has not been an easy journey. I had to prove myself every day. Actresses have to prove themselves every day. A woman has a short career span, a married woman’s equity dies, women are not bankable commodities at the box office, ‘female-centric’ (I hate this word!!) films are huge risks, a married actress who is also a mother is the final nail in the coffin of her dreams, ambitions and aspirations – these are some of the discriminatory stereotypes that we have to live with and try to overcome every single day,” asserted Rani.
