Rani had earlier played the role of a journalist in No One Killed Jessica. After No One Killed Jessica, Rani Mukerji is set to do the garb of a journalist once again for BombayTalkies.
Bombay Talkies is a bouquet of four stories directed by four different directors - Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Dibaker 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 actress 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 film. She is paired opposite Randeep. The duo are sharing screen space for the first time," the spokesperson of film said in a statement.
