Actress Rani Mukherjee will be teaming up with Yash Raj Films (YRF)
for a project titled Mardaani in which she will act as a
police officer for the first time. The film will be directed by
"Rani will be doing Mardaani. It will be directed by
Pradeep Sarkar. She will be playing a police officer in the film," a spokesperson of Yash Raj Films (YRF) told PTI. The movie is
supposed to be raw and gritty, something that Sarkar and Rani both
have never done.
The filmmaker had earlier directed Laga Chunari Mein
Daag and Lafangey Parindey for YRF. Rani's last
outing with the banner was Dil Bole Hadippa, which failed
to create magic at the Box Office. The shooting of the film 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,"
Rafiq Gangjee, vice president (Marketing and Communications), YRF
said. The movie is expected to go on the floors later this year. It
is slated to release worldwide in 2014.
