Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji was on 3 March 2015 awarded with the National Award for the Best Representation of the Cause of Safety, Security and Protection of Women and Girl Child by National Institute of Gender Justice (NIGJ).

Rani is the first ever film personality to be felicitated with this prestigious award. She was awarded for creating awareness about child trafficking in New Delhi.

Rani was honoured not only for her incredible work in cinema but also for the kind of work she has been doing to create awareness about child trafficking.

The powerful and fearless performance of Rani Mukerji in Mardaani idealised the role of police in prevention of crime against women, especially trafficking of girl child for commercial sexual exploitation.

The film Mardaani has been directed by Pradeep Sarkar where Rani has played the role of Senior Inspector (crime branch) Shivani Shivaji Roy.

The past awardees include Anna Hazare, Pratibha Patil, Pandit Jasraj and Mahashweta Devi.
