Rani has evolved into one of the best actresses in the industry today, never mind her box office luck this year.
Both her 2006 releases -- Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Baabul -- saw her in author-backed roles. And the actress did justice to both.
Rani's climb on the Bollywood ladder is assured. After all, the actress is a favourite of one of the biggest banners in the industry -- Yash Raj Films. Her next film, Tara Rum Pum -- directed by Siddharth Anand (Salaam Namaste) -- will be produced by Yash Raj as well.
