Rani Mukherjee prefers challenging roles
Mumbai: Rani Mukherjee, who plays a distressed wife and a mother dealing with her son's death in her latest release 'Talaash', says she likes to challenge herself as an actor and be choosy as she does not want to be part of films that bore her as well as the audience.
"I have to be choosy. If I don't challenge myself as an actor to play a particular part I myself will get bored. Three-four years back, I chose to sit back and do films that would not bore me. If I get bored then how can I expect from the audience to not get bored," asked Rani.
"So if I am challenged, I am excited, if I am raring, then I know that this is something that the audience will also like," she said.
In her 17-year-long career, Rani has played a variety of roles from being a college student in 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' to a doctor in 'Saathiya', a lawyer in 'Veer Zaara', a spirited wife in 'Yuva', blind girl in 'Black' and a fire-brand journalist in 'No One Killed Jessica'.
She insists she chooses to play different roles as playing same characters becomes monotonous.
"Things could get saturated or monotonous if I would do the same characters again and again. I would do roles that would not make sense to me and or do films where I am just standing there and not doing anything," Rani said.
"That is why to save myself from that feeling I take time out to choose roles that excite me," she said.
Before zeroing on a film, Rani feels the script and her role has to be satisfactory.
"Whenever I say I cannot do roles and films one after the other is because sometimes the film that comes my way is great but the role is not exciting. (Sometimes) my role is great but other things attached to the film are not. It has to be a mixture of all things great script, great role," the 34-year-old actress said.
