Rani Mukherjee who was last seen in Aiyya, will now be seen teaming up with Yash Raj Films (YRF) for a project titled Mardaani.
Reportedly, Rani Mukherjee will be acting as a police officer for the first time. Pradeep Sarkar will be the director of the movie.
“Rani will be doing Mardaani. It will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar. She will be playing a police officer in the film,” according to a spokesperson of Yash Raj Films (YRF). The movie is supposed to be raw and gritty, something that Sarkar and Rani both have never done.
Pradeep Sarkar has directed Laga Chunari Mein Daag and Lafangey Parindey before under the banner of YRF. Rani Mukherjee’s last movie with YRF was Dil Bole Hadippa, which failed to sizzle the audience. The shooting of this movie is likely to begin by this year end. “The film will be YRF’s boldest subject ever to be made and a distinct departure from Pradeep Sarkar’s style of filmmaking,” said Rafiq Gangjee, vice president (Marketing and Communications).
The movie is slated to release worldwide in 2014.
