Rani Mukherjee Shahrukh Khan.
Rani Mukherjee had performed in successful bollywood films for the last 10 years with all the leading actors. Whenever she had acted with Shahrukh Khan the films were admired by the viewers even more as both the performers complimented each other in their respective roles.
In Veer Zara, although Shahrukh Khan had an affair with Preeti Zinta, and sacrificed his life to see her happy, Rani Mukherjee saved his life at the end of the film. Shahrukh Khan was wrongly prosecuted for anti-national activities and languished in jail for many years. Rani Mukherjee reopened the case and freed him. The film produced by Yash-Raj Banner showed that love has no boundary, no religion and no nationality. In fact Rani Mukherjee defeated her senior played by Anupam Kher in the court proceeding.
Both of them were elegant in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Shahrukh Khan and Kajol were college friends in the film. They fought against each other and also admired each other. Rani Mukherjee joined the institution later. She was more composed than Kajol. There were hit songs in the film like “larki bara anjana hai”, “kuch kuch hota hai”, “koi mil gaya”, etc. Rani Mukherjee died in the film and her memory haunted Shahrukh Khan and he carried it with him even at the time when marriage of Kajol was fixed with Salman Khan. The film was very successful.
Both of them also performed in the film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, where Abhishek Bacchan and Preeti Zinta also played leading roles. The songs in the film composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, also had significance, including songs like “mitwa”, “kabhi alvida na kehna”.
Both of them also performed in Amol Palekar’s film Paheli. The film was based on folk tales. Both Sharukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee adjusted themselves with the rural style of dialogue delivery and the semi-rural mannerisms which are expected in these types of films. With Shahrukh Khan sponsoring the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Cricket League, he has devoted lesser time for films. His admirers expect his team to do well and both Sharukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee act together in more films in future.
