With her powerful performance as daredevil Senior Inspector Shivani Shivaji Roy in the 2014 film Mardaani, Rani Mukerji impressed critics and audiences alike. After five years down the line, the talented actress is set to reprise the same role once again in Mardaani 2, a sequel to the superhit film.
According to sources, Mardaani 2 is set to mount the shooting floor on March 18 in Mumbai and Rani is quite psyched up about starting the shoot.
“Mardaani 2 shoot starts in Mumbai in March and this will be a short schedule. Rani is raring to go and it will be quite thrilling to see her back in action as Shivani Shivaji Roy. She is taking on a 21-year-old villain who knows no mercy or empathy,” a source close to the project divulges.
Talking about the lead villain in the film, the makers have finalized a young actor for the role. “The makers have zeroed in on a young boy who will take on Rani in this much-awaited sequel,” a source had informed earlier.
Bankrolled by Aditya Chopra and directed by Gopi Puthran, Mardaani 2 is expected to hit the marquee towards the end of the year.
