Rani Mukherjee’s Character In ‘No One Killed Jessica’ is Fictional
Rani Mukherjee will be seen for the first time in an aggressive and sharp role of a crime reporter called ‘Meera’, in ‘No One Killed Jessica’, based on the true murder story of late Jessica Lall. The actress says that her character is fictional and doesn’t relate to the real story.
Rani reveals, “Nothing is fictional in the film except my character. But, it has lot of realism.”
As per her, the role of media in the murder case was seen in a different light altogether and she believes that if the power of media could be used in a proper way, it can bring huge changes.
She adds further, “The media`s role when witnesses turned hostile in the case is portrayed through my character Meera.”
"The manner in which the media followed up the case to its logical end and the gritty, thrilling script penned by director Rajkumar Gupta was intriguing and made me opt for this film.”
Rani also tells that the director of the movie, Rajkumar Gupta met Jessica’s elder sister, Sabrina and discussed the script with her and with her consent only, the movie was made. Vidya Balan stars in the role of Sabrina.
Even Rani met Sabrina at a press conference and she reveals further, “Sabrina spent the most important years of her life fighting for justice for her dead sister. I had sympathy for her as she fought alone. But the media supported her and used its power correctly. The whole of India stood as one and I was happy to be part of this project.”
