Expressing her happiness over the response that the trailer of Mardaani 2 has received in no time, Rani Mukerji said, “Mardaani 2 has an important social message and the entire plan has been built to spread this message as wide, to as many people as possible. I am overwhelmed by the reactions and really happy that our trailer has struck a chord with audiences.”

Just like the first part of the franchise, Rani will be seen pitted against a very young but immensely dangerous villain. The makers are yet to reveal who is playing the lead antagonist in the movie. Mardaani 2 will also address the dangerous societal issue of rape cases in India that are being committed by juveniles.

Such crimes committed by juveniles is a reality and it is important for everyone to take note of this because it’s one of the biggest challenges and threats posed to society at large.”
