Rani, who is married to filmmaker Aditya Chopra, gave birth to their daughter Adira in December 2015 was recently asked whether motherhood has changed her?
“Yes, with a child we undergo a huge transformation,” Rani told IANS.
“I felt what true love is. That happens with motherhood… Till I had my child, I did not realise how I can love someone more than myself. At the same time, a few months ago I lost my father. So I know what extreme pain feels like,” the actress said, paused and added: “As an actress, I channelise all my emotions and energy into my work. I feel the vacuum of my father, but instead of crying and brooding over it, I channelise the emotions.”
Rani’s comeback vehicle Hichki, in which she plays a person suffering Tourette Syndrome a neurological disorder, has won her praise. She is enthused about working more in films and she is glad her daughter has started understanding this.
“She is a very playful child and stays without me when I am working. She is a happy baby. She has begun to understand that I go for work… And I wanted to teach her for a certain time I will go out for work… She should have the security that I will come back,” said the 40-year-old.
From playing a London-returned style diva Tina in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to a deaf, blind and mute Michelle McNally in Black, from the outspoken strong-headed Meera in “No One Killed Jessica” to police officer Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani – Rani has proved her versatility and acting talent with many films in the last 22 years.
