After the success of Hichki, Rani Mukerji is all set to pack a punch in her next Mardaani 2. The actress has kickstarted the shooting of the YRF project wherein she will reprise the role of feisty cop Shivani Shivaji Roy and will have a face-off with a merciless villain, who’ll be just 21-year old! Rani Mukerji had delivered an outstanding performance in the superhit prequel, Mardaani, in which she took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket. The sequel will see the protagonist under a different light as she is now a Superintendent of Police. Shivani will be locked in a vicious battle with the antagonist who knows no mercy. Earlier, her look was out from the film’s shoot. And while it isn’t much different than we remember, Rani sure looked more fierce than ever. In fact, now that the shooting is on in full swing we can’t wait for the teaser to drop! Rani is apparently in the middle of an intense shooting schedule. In fact, a new picture of Rani in the cop’s uniform is here and boy, does she look kickass. That and bold, defiant, fearless who is ready to take the goon head on. The project itself has been generating tremendous buzz right since its announcement and every picture is adding to the curiosity.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, this will be Rani’s next release after the blockbuster Hichki. Mardaani 2 marks the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, writer of the first Mardaani film. “Mardaani is and will always be extremely close to my heart. Right since its release, everyone has asked me time and again when I would be doing Mardaani 2 and I’m sure this announcement will come as a pleasant surprise to them all. Gopi has written an extraordinary script that we all love and I can’t wait to start shooting this film soon,” Rani had said in a statement.
