Making her acting debut with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat (1997), Rani Mukherjee had her first commercial success with Karan Johar's romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), her biggest commercial success so far, and won a Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for her performance in the film. She later starred in several films, most of which fared below expectations, but in 2002 she re-invented her image with the critically acclaimed drama Saathiya, for which she received numerous awards and nominations, including her first Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress.

In 2004, her performances in the hit Hum Tum and the critically acclaimed Yuva earned her the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards at the 50th Filmfare Awards, making her the first actress to win two major awards in the same year. She later received unanimous praise for her portrayal of a blind, deaf and mute woman in Black (2005), for which she garnered numerous major awards, including two more Filmfare Awards: Best Actress and Best Actress - Critics. She went on to play leading roles in the comedy Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and the adult drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), both of which were commercial successes and fetched Rani Mukherjee Best Actress nominations at the Filmfare Awards ceremony. Rani Mukherjee thus established herself as a leading actress of Hindi cinema. She then featured in a series of commercially unsuccessful films including Baabul (2006), Ta Ra Rum Pum (2007), Laaga Chunari Mein Daag (2007) and Dil Bole Hadippa! (2009), before re-inventing herself with Raj Kumar Gupta's semi-biographic thriller No One Killed Jessica (2011).

Personal life
Rani Mukherjee changed the English transliteration of her surname from Mukherjee to Mukerji several years ago. At the time, it was reported that she did this for numerological reasons. In 2006, Rani Mukherjee stated that numerology was not a concern; her name had been put down as Mukerji on her passport, and she wanted to be consistent.

Rani Mukherjee has three homes in Mumbai, including her childhood home. She bought a bungalow in Juhu for herself and her parents in mid-2005. The house went through a two year renovation with the interiors done by Twinkle Khanna and Sussanne Roshan.
