“It is overwhelming and hugely gratifying to see that Black is receiving so much love”: Rani Mukerji on Black’s OTT release as it clocks 19 years
Bollywood star Rani Mukerji is overwhelmed with all the love coming her way, after the release of her iconic film Black, on OTT. The film, directed by the maverick filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, starred the legendary Amitabh Bachchan alongside Rani Mukerji. Black recently clocked 19 years and to celebrate the same, the makers released the film on Netflix. Ever since its OTT launch, Rani has been inundated with messages from the fans and film aficionados across the world.
Says Rani, “It is overwhelming and hugely gratifying to see that Black is receiving so much love from the audience even after 19 years, with its OTT release. The film holds a very special place in my filmography. The experience of working with legendary Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and being directed by my favourite filmmaker of all times Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is something that will stay with me forever.”
She adds, “I am glad that the film is out on Netflix and all those who missed watching the magic of Black in theatres when it released 19 years ago, will be able to witness it, on their screens. It is always humbling to see your work reach a wider audience.”
