Rani Mukerji to kickstart the shooting of Mardaani 2.

Rani Mukerji is gearing up to return as cop Shivani Shivaji Roy in the sequel to her 2014 hit film Mardaani, that goes on floors on March 18. As per sources, Rani, who played a Senior Inspector in the previous movie, will now be seen as a Superintendent of Police fighting a vicious battle with a 21-year old merciless villain in its part two.

Another source told DNA, Rani is raring to go and it will be thrilling to see her back in action as Shivani Shivaji Roy. What adds to the curiosity is that this time, the villain is a 21-year old who knows no empathy. Their edge-of-the-seat showdown will have the audiences glued to their seats.While the first part was helmed by Pradeep Sarkar, Mardaani 2 will be directed by debutant Gopi Puthram.

Earlier, when Rani announced Mardaani 2, she told, 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.

Mardaani released months after Rani Mukerji tied the knot with YRF honcho Aditya Chopra. The film had Tahir Raj Bhasin playing the main antagonist.

Produced by Aditya Chopra, Mardaani was helmed by Pradeep Sarkar and also starred Jisshu Sengupta and Saanand Verma.

Mardaani 2 will also be bankrolled by Chopra’s YRF and will mark the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, who wrote the first film.
