She has seen ups and downs in her life as well as career and yet she has always managed to bounce back to surprise people with her boundless energy. Of late, Rani Mukherji seems to have vanished from the Bollywood scene completely, but now it's time for her comeback.

The depression period in her career cycle might soon be over, as she is set to appear in a ravishing new avatar, thanks to Aamir Khan's trainer Satyajit Chourasia, who's helping her with her work-outs. You'll know what we are talking if you have seen the 'new Rani' in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi song.

Rani Mukherji is one of those few Bollywood actresses who loses weight only to gain it back after few films. While she looked ultra glamorous in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, which was her comeback film after duds like Mehndi and Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, she shocked her fans with her thunder thighs in Hello Brother, Baadal and Bichchoo.

Film Chalte Chalte that saw Rani in a super-fit avatar, re-established her in the top league. She continued her success story with Yuva and Hum Tum and went on to win the best actress and best supporting actress filmfare award in the same year. Black was the ultimate high of her career after which she started to slip from the topmost position.

While Bunty Aur Babli was a hit, 'weighty' issues started to crop up again. Soon the queen bee was bombarded with flops like Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Baabul, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. All she needs is a nice makeover and a great script. On her 31st birthday, we do hope she bounces back again like she always does.
