Mommy Rani Mukerji signs first film after her maternity break

Mommy Rani Mukerji signs first film after her maternity break

Rani was last seen in the film Mardaani and this would be a first film after a two-year hiatus.

While you might think that new mommy Rani Mukerji is enjoying her timeout as a mother and has no plans to return to the silver screen, the buzz is that the Mardaani actress is all set to sign her first film after her maternity break.

The buzz is that the Rani would be making her big Bollywood comeback with husband Aditya Chopra's next production that would be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra of We Are Family (2010) fame. Reports also say that it would be a strong female-oriented film and would have a strong social message.


The film marks Rani’s return after two years, Pradeep Sarkar’s Mardaani. Says a source close to the developments, “Rani plays the central lead in Siddharth’s film. Like Mardaani, this one too will deal with a strong social issue. He narrated the script to Adi first and then Rani. They both loved it and Adi will produce the film. Siddharth, Adi and Rani have been meeting and working out the project regarding dates et al," says a report in a prominent Mumbai newspaper.

However, Rani was worried about Adira as she is a full-time mother right now and wants to giver her all to her when she is not even a year old.

“Since her baby Adira’s birth, Rani has become a full-time, hands-on mother, completely immersed in caring for her child, but in December, Adira will be a year old and the actress will find time to work by then. It took time to convince her to act again, but Adi heard the script and felt it would be perfect for her, after Mardaani,” said the report.

While Rani is currently on a maternity break and is enjoying motherhood to the core, the actress was involved in the production of Aditya Chopra's current film Befikre and even accompanied him to the shoots along with daughter Adira.

Rani was last seen in the film Mardaani and this would be a first film in two years. The yet untitled film is set to go on floors in 2017.

Perhaps she could take some cues on how to manage work-life balance from fellow celeb mommy Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has clearly shown that a mother can do it all.
