Mumbai: Usually actors wish for a U/A certificate for their films so that many people can go and see the film, but Rani Mukerji is different. The actress wants an `Adult` certificate for her forthcoming film "No One Killed Jessica".

"I`ll be more than happy with an `A` certificate for the film. In fact, I want that because we don`t want children to come and see this film. I think it won`t be okay for children to come and see this film so it will be okay if they give it an `A` certificate," Rani told reporters here.

"Even I wouldn`t get my niece for the film because I think it`s not meant for her," she added.

"No One Killed Jessica" is based on model Jessica Lall who was shot dead in 1999 by Manu Sharma in a nightclub. Produced by UTV Spotboy, the film also features Vidya Balan as Jessica`s elder sister Sabrina. It will hit the screens Jan 7 next year.

In the film, Rani will be seen in a completely different and bold avatar.

"My role is that of a TV news reporter called Meera Gaiety. She is a fearless journalist, in a way heroic like most female journalists. It was a great experience working on this film because I had the chance of asking the questions and not answering them," said Rani.

"The character is inspired by many women journalists. It`s a mixture of all, not on one particular woman journalist. My director wanted me to build this character as my own," she added.
