Just when we wondered if she would ever resume acting, Rani Mukerji made a smashing comeback with Mardaani. Essaying the role of a senior police inspector, she bravely fights a child-trafficking racket. The good news is, inspector Shivani Shivaji Roy is soon to be back! Work on Mardaani 2 was on for a while now, and we finally hear it is almost ready to roll out to the floors. As per a report on Bollywood Life, the team starts shooting on March 18.
"Mardaani 2 shoot starts in Mumbai in March and this will be a short schedule. Rani is raring to go and it will be quite thrilling to see her back in action as Shivani Shivaji Roy. She is taking on a 21-year-old villain who knows no mercy or empathy," a source told India Today. It was earlier reported that a young guy has been already chosen to play the antagonist. We wait to find out who it is.
Debutant director Gopi Puthram who wrote Mardaani, will be helming the project. Rani, in an earlier statement, said she found the sequel's script 'extraordinary'.
