Rani Mukerji will be seen playing the role of a cop in Yash Raj’s next venture “Mardani”.
Mardani will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar. This is the first time when Rani will be playing a cop on-screen. However, it is not the first time when she will be working with Pradeep Sarkar. They had earlier worked Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, which paired her with Abhishek Bachchan.
Talking about Mardaani, Pradeep said,”The film will be raw and gritty. It is something that neither Rani nor I have attempted before. And it’s always good to invade in new territories, isn’t it?”
According to a source of Yash Raj Films, Mardani will be the boldest till date under the YRF banner. If rumors are to be believed, Aditya Chopra and his team handpicked the actress, as the script requires a strong heroine. Major potions of the film will be shot in Mumbai.
