"I hope to work till I literally take my boots off. You can't take artist out of me ever. Even though I play a wife today, and in future a mother, but the most significant role is as an actor I am known for... that I will continue to play and that's never going to change," Rani told reporters during the trailer launch of "Mardaani".
The actress, who has worked in many women-centric films, says she hopes many more good scripts will come her way.
"We actors are like beggars. We never choose, we are chosen by directors, producers. If a powerful script comes my way, I will take it up. We sit there and wait to be chosen... hopefully, there will be better characters written and we will get better roles," she said.
While fellow actress Vidya Balan feels women don't have much to play in films with the Khans, Rani said she loves all the Khans.
"I love all the Khans. I have some personal love for them. Since my first films 'Ghulam' and 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', I have shared a special relationship with the Khans and my roles have been very special with them. So I should not be complaining, I love them and they are amazing," Rani said.
