I wish to do films where women are shown stronger: Rani

Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji enjoys being a part of women-centric films and says she would like do a movie where a woman is projected as a strong person.

'Whatever films I have been a part of so far, most of them have been women-centric films. I wish to do more of such films where women are shown stronger because it is a fact that women are stronger,'  said Rani, who gave hits like Bunty Aur Babli and Saathiya.

Her role in the upcoming film No One Killed Jessica would be a reflection of her belief where she would be seen in the role of a television journalist.

The actress was in the capital to be a part of Plan India's fund raising auction and support the organisation's global gender equity and equality campaign - Because I Am A Girl. Plan India promotes child rights and works to improve the quality of life of vulnerable children in India.

Rani made her Bollywood debut with the woman-centric film Raja Aayegi Baraat. She was later seen in films like Mehendi, Black, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Hum Tum, Yuva and Veer Zaara among others.

Asked about not being seen on screen much these days, she said: 'I want to be a part of good films and play good characters. I wouldn't like to disappoint my fans. I have always tried that every new film I do is different from others.'

'After Dil Bole Hadippa, I found the script of No One Killed Jessica best, so I decided to take it up. We had completed our shooting in June, but they (the makers) also needed some time to complete the film,' she said.

No One Killed Jessica is based on model Jessica Lall who was shot dead in 1999 by Manu Sharma in a nightclub. Produced by UTV Spotboy, the film also features Vidya Balan as Jessica's elder sister Sabrina. It will hit the screens Jan 7 next year.
