The beautiful actress Rani Mukerji has turned a year older today (March 21). The light-eyed beauty has turned 38. It must indeed be a special one for her as she won’t be just celebrating it with her husband Aditya Chopra, in-laws, relatives and friends. This time there is special one in the family who has surely added joy in Rani’s life and it is none other Adira, her little daughter. Yes, everyone is just waiting to get a glimpse of Rani’s daughter. Rani has delivered some best performances in her career. And it’s a variety! And over the years, her looks have also changed. Rani has sported glamorous look, a simple look, rough and tough look and many more. The transformation has been a tremendous one.

When we speak of any actress, we also see how she has changed over the years in terms of looks and what kind of films she has done. Her style, attitude, personal life, everything becomes a discussion. Speaking of Rani her acting and choice of films has been appreciated. People love seeing her in traditional attire over western ones. So let’s take a look how Rani looked when she began her career in Hindi cinema in 1997 and now. We’ll go through some of the popular films of the Chopra khaandaan bahu:

Rani Mukerji’s first Hindi cinema was the 1997 released movie ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat’. It is said that the actress did this film because her mother insisted. Though the movie did not work well commercially, this dramatic film brought Rani in limelight. Her appearance or her looks in the film didn’t receive appreciation then.

Ghulam (1998)

The minute we speak of the Aamir Khan and Rani Mukerjee starrer ‘Ghulam’, the one thing that comes to our mind is the song Aati Kya Khandala due to which Rani grabbed millions of eyeballs. In fact her style in the film was talk of the town then.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)

The Karan Johar directorial movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ gave Rani Mukerji a breakthrough in the Hindi film industry. Her style in the film was loved by many and in fact it became a trend during those days among college girls. She sported both Indian and western avatar in the film.

Nayak: The Real Hero (2001)

Rani Mukerji was paired opposite Anil Kapoor in ‘Nayak: The Real Hero’. The movie did not garner praise and sadly it didn’t work for Rani as well. Though she had sported a shy girl look in the film, it did not work well for her.

Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002)

The queen of Bollywood was back in action with ‘Mujhse Dosti Karoge!’ in which Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan also played the lead roles. The love triangle story did work well for the actress. Speaking of her looks, there was no major makeover.

Bunty Aur Babli (2005)

The crime-comedy movie ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ starring Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji was a major success for the actress. She played the role of a con woman in the film. The colourful collar styled salwar kameez (Rani’s style) is still remembered when the fans speak of this film.

Dil Bole Hadippa! (2009)

Don’t you remember Rani Mukerji’s moustache avatar in ‘Dil Bole Hadippa!’? The movie which also starred Shahid Kapoor in the lead role did not work well at the box office but it was something different that the actress did.

No One Killed Jessica (2011)

Rani Mukerji who played the role a news reporter in the film grabbed many eyeballs. Her performance was praised. Her look was kept simple but yet it was stylish!

Mardaani (2014)

Seeing Rani Mukerji holding a revolver in hand, a rough and tough cop – what a brilliant performance! After seeing her in majorly glamorous roles and then as Shivani Shivaji Roy a Senior Inspector, she left everyone speechless. Her look as a brave police officer did wonders.

Rani Mukerji has played love interest to a tough cop role. She transformed beautifully over the years. Rani’s look or style is spoken not just among fans but many from B-town too. We just hope to see the diva back on the silver screens soon. Happy Birthday Rani!
