“Whatever films I have been a part of so far, most of them have been women-centric. I wish to do more such films where women are shown as being stronger because it is a fact,” Rani said recently.

Her role in the upcoming film No One Killed Jessica sees her as a television journalist.

Rani made her Bollywood debut with the woman-centric film Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat. Asked why she hasn’t been seen on the big screen lately, she replied, “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 to make sure 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.

“Thanks to my career, I have met a lot of reporters and anchors.

So I didn’t have to meet any one specific person for my characterisation in the film. Rajkumar just wanted me to use my experience with journalists to be like them in the film,” she said.

No One Killed Jessica is based on the story of 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 on January 7 next year.
