Rani Mukerji's director brother Raja Ram Mukerji has bagged the Golden Galaxy award for the Best Film at the Virgin Spring Cinefest in Kolkata. The short film, Main Kaun Hoon, inspires women to rediscover their true self. Starring Manisha Marzara, Rana Jung Bahadur and Hemanth Rath, it has been doing the rounds of the film festivals. Last year, he had released the short film, Sab Theek Hai, starring Roja (1992) actor Madhoo. He is keen to make films that deal with women empowerment to create awareness about it.

Talking about Sab Theek Hai Raja had earlier, "Women are not treated equally or perceived to earn as much as men. People think only men are capable of earning big bucks. I always encouraged my actress wife, Jyoti, to work." Raja earlier produced and directed the television show Prratima, which starred Jyoti with Kirron Kher."
