Rani Mukerji who is enjoying juggling between her work and being a mother, has started shooting for her upcoming film titled 'Mardaani 2'. After delivering a power packed performance in 'Hichki' (2018), Rani will now return as Shivani Shivaji Roy, a cop.

While the first film revolved around child trafficking, Mardaani 2 revolves around a cat and mouse chase between Rani and a 21-year old villain, reports suggest. “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," Rani had said earlier.
“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,” Rani had said in a statement.
Talking about films, Rani in one of the interviews said: "It’s important to do that because only when you back the project will it see the light of the day. When you come across a script that you, in your gut, feel strongly about, you have to take it on irrespective of what some people may tell you. There have been so many examples last year itself where these beliefs have been proved wrong. Today, there can’t be a distinction that a film is big or small. Ab koi bhi movie badi ho sakti hai, depending on the content.”
According to the reports, Chunky Pandey's nephew Ahaan will make his debut in the film. Hinting at his plans of joining YRF, Chunky had said: "He (Ahaan) is a very hard working boy and he will also have an announcement soon. He is not debuting with Dharma (Productions), but somewhere else... It could be Yash Raj (Films). I can't really talk about it, but a very good news will be announced soon."
'Mardaani' (2014) was directed by Pradeep Sarkar but the sequel will be directed by its writer, Gopi Puthran.
