Mumbai, 24 June-2014, Apurva Singh/IE: Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji, who was last seen in ‘Talaash’, is back with a bang after a 2 year hiatus. The actress, who recently tied the knot with filmmaker Yash Chopra, will be seen playing a tough cop in her upcoming film ‘Mardaani’.
Mardaani’s first official trailer was launched today on June 24 in Mumbai. The trailer features a head-strong woman cop played by Rani Mukerji who is fighting against child sex trafficking. This YRF production is very different from the romantic fils and romcoms the studio is known for and it leaves a strong impact.
“Shivani Shivaji Roy, crime branch Mumbai, senior inspector,” is what Rani Mukerji says while introducing her.
The movie is about child trafficking and how Rani’s character follows the traffickers to release the girls caught in it.
Rani plays a cop for the first time onscreen in Mardaani. The movie has been directed by Pradeep Sarkar, who last directed Rani in ‘Laaga Chunari Mein Daag’ (2007) and produced by Yash Raj Films. The film is slated to release on August 22.
