After No One Killed Jessica, Rani Mukerji is set to don the garb of a journalist once again for Bombay Talkies. The film is a bouquet of four stories directed by different directors – Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee. It is an ode to 100 years of Indian cinema.
The story directed by Karan features Rani, Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem. Both Karan and Rani have been best friends ever since the actor made her debut in the film industry with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and have shared a long professional relationship.
“Rani will be essaying the role of a journalist in the movie. She is paired opposite Randeep. The duo are sharing screen space for the first time,” the spokesperson of film said in a statement.
