Rani Mukerji is back in the garb of a police officer. The actress nailed the role in ‘Mardaani’ and now with the sequel, she is only going one notch higher. The makers of the film have revealed the first look of Rani from the film, and we must say, she looks totally like one of the no-nonsense police officers we have seen over the years.

Talking of the film, Rani is set to go on a hunt for her 21-year old nemesis across Rajasthan. Rani is back to playing the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy. She is laying out her intricate plan to take on the antagonist head on. From what we know of the film, it’s being said that Rani will launch an extensive operation to find the merciless villain in Kota and Jaipur. The action-packed film’s shoot has been going on in the western state for the past month or so.
Speaking of the film’s shoot across Rajasthan, Gopi Puthran, director of the sequel said, “It’s an intense one month long schedule in Rajasthan which forms the backdrop to the story of ‘Mardaani 2’. Rani’s investigation will take her to Jaipur and Kota. Given that we are shooting in peak summer of Rajasthan, it will be physically demanding because Rani will be doing action sequences too. The entire team is thrilled to be shooting in the beautiful state of Rajasthan and we are looking forward to the love and cooperation from the people.”
Rani had delivered an outstanding performance in the superhit and hugely acclaimed prequel, ‘Mardaani’. She took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket. So, there is a lot of anticipation on who her villain will be in the sequel. Produced by Aditya Chopra, this will be Rani’s next release after the global blockbuster ‘Hichki’.
‘Mardaani 2’ marks the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, the writer of the first ‘Mardaani’ film. The film is set to hit theatres later this year.
