Rani Mukerji’s edge of the seat entertainer Mardaani 2 will release on December 13. The much-awaited cop thriller will see Rani reprising the role of the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police Shivani Shivaji Roy and there is a lot of anticipation among audience who want to know which crime is Shivani fighting against in the sequel.
Director Gopi Puthran says, “Rani as Shivani will be seen in a massive showdown with a 21-year-old villain who is an embodiment of pure evil. He is a dangerous criminal who targets women.”
Yash Raj Films, who are producing the film, have chosen the auspicious time of Navratri to unveil that Rani will stand up against crimes against women. It goes with the theme of Navratri.
Rani says, “The film will see a woman cop fighting a pure evil of a person to end crimes against women. As we all know, Navratri stands for the victory and battle of good over evil across India. Whether it is Goddess Durga’s victory over the demon Mahishasura or Lord Rama’s victory over Ravana, Navratri’s significance is key to this asset launch. So, we decided to start the journey of Mardaani 2 on this auspicious occasion.”
She adds, “For me, personally, I’m thrilled that the first key communication of Mardaani 2 is happening during Durga Puja that celebrates woman power in its truest and bravest form. Maa Durga took on the forces of evil and defeated it and Mardaani 2 will see a woman stand up against evil, against crimes committed against women and take a bold and brave stand. ”
YRF has still not disclosed who the antagonist is in Mardaani 2 but it’s almost certain that Aditya Chopra has found an exceptionally talented actor to play the role.
The film marks the directorial debut of Gopi, who was the writer of the first Mardaani film. Mardaani 2 was shot extensively in Jaipur and Kota in Rajasthan. This will be Rani’s next release after Hichki that delivered Rs 250 crore worldwide.
