People say actresses have a short span of career, but with a commendable span of more than 20 years to her credit, Rani Mukerji is one of the top female stars that Indian cinema has witnessed. She has proved the saying wrong by making a roaring comeback after marriage and having her baby. Playing all kinds of roles right from the ‘90s, the actress has always challenged herself with every film and gave a new experience to the cinemagoers each time.
While her last film Hichki won her applause from both critics and audiences, the actress is all set to return as fierce cop, Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani 2. Yes, you heard it right. Rani is all set to star in the sequel of her 2014 release Mardaani.
Here's a poster from the last film to remind you of the roaring performance Rani had given last time:
In a recent interaction, talking about the project, Mukerji 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.”
She further added,
“Shivani will face a cold, merciless villain who has no empathy, no fear of God and is pure evil. The character has been written superbly and I'm excited to find out who the actor will be.”
The film will be directed by the writer of the first one (Mardaani), Gopi Puthran and will hit the screens in 2019. We hear that Rani will begin shooting for the film next year only.
wishes this dazzling diva all the very best for this sequel which is raising our excitement bar.
On the personal front, Rani Mukerji recently celebrated her daughter Adira's third birthday which was attended by many star kids like Yash, Roohi, Lakshay and many more.
