In 2014 release Mardaani, Rani Mukerji played the role of a cop named Shivani Shivaji Roy. The movie showcased the issue of child trafficking in our country. Now the makers of the film are coming up with the sequel of the film titled Mardaani 2 and Rani will be back as the no-nonsense cop Shivani Shivaji Roy.
Recently, while talking about the film to a news agency, the actress said, “In Hichki, they (audience) came to know about the symptoms of Tourettes which not many people knew in India. With Mardaani we got to tell people how the menace of child trafficking exists in our lives even though we don’t want to see it but it is rampant around us. In Mardaani 2, we will again tackle a subject that will be shocking; it will show something very real, very alarming to audiences and make them aware of what’s happening in and around our lives.”
Rani started shooting for Mardaani 2 a couple of months ago. It was a few days ago when she wrapped up a schedule in Rajasthan. The movie is directed by Gopi Puthran and the release date is yet to be announced. However, reportedly, the film will be releasing in November this year. We are sure fans of Rani are eagerly waiting to see her on the big screen.
While talking about the film, Rani had earlier said, “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.”
Last year, Rani made her big screen comeback with Hichki after taking a maternity break. The actress’ performance as a girl suffering from Tourette syndrome was appreciated a lot. The film was a hit at the box office and did very well in China.
