There have been innumerable cop films in Bollywood, but there are few that stand out for their portrayal of woman police officers. With Rani Mukerji being the latest to break the stereotype with her return to the big screen as a fierce cop, here is taking a look back at some of the films that saw women in a cop avatar.
Jai Gangaajal is a 2016 Indian crime drama which is a follow-up to the 2003 crime film Gangaajal. Priyanka Chopra plays a Senior Inspector in this movie. Despite some negative criticisms it received, Priyanka Chopra's honest performance in the film and presenting it with glamour made up for it in the eyes of the audience.
Tabu pulling off the character of a female cop was a treat for her many fans as she portrayed the role so convincingly and at ease. Her role in the film shows her in a dilemma of being a police officer and mother.
In this film, Hema Malini was seen playing Inspector Durga Devi Singh. She was praised for her performance in this movie and did justice to the character by a display of confidence and her acting. Despite being a star-studded film, Hema Malini managed to get more attention than her co-stars in Andha Kanoon.
Everyone remembers the action-packed performance delivered by Rani Mukerji in the first instalment of the film that came out in 2014. With Mardaani 2, Rani Mukerji is all set to revive her character which will again see the actor in the lead. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Mardaani 2. Produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Gopi Puthran, Mardaani 2 comes out December 13 this year.
