tress Rani Mukerji, who is gearing up for the second installment of the Mardaani franchise, says the film will see a woman stand up against evil, against crimes committed on women and take a bold and brave stand.
Rani is set to reprise the role of the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani 2.
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.”
“This Navratri, good will triumph over evil. Mark the date,” the makers wrote on Twitter while sharing the teaser of Mardaani 2. Mardaani 2 is being produced by Yash Raj Films, headed by Rani Mukerji’s husband Aditya Chopra.
The teaser begins with a tense moment when armed cops can be seen entering a gated area for what appears to be a surprise raid. Rani Mukerji, dressed sharply as Shivani Shivaji Roy, can be seen gearing up to take charge of the situation. But the actual surprise is in the final second of the trailer, when a bruised and bloody Shivani Shivaji Roy can be seen beating the villain to pulp, with a warning: “Ab tu kissi ladki ko haath laga ke toh dikha… tujhe itna marungi, ki tere twaja se tere umra ka paata nahi chalega.”
