Mardaani featuring Rani Mukherjee is releasing on August 22, 2014. Rani Mukherjee who plays Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani as senior crime branch official is fearless and clever in picking up clues and chasing the bad guys.
The film revolves around child trafficking. Mardaani is
directed by Pradeep Sarkar and produced by her husband Aditya
Chopra. This film is a come back movie for Rani Mukherjee.
The filmmakers launched the Mardaani anthem today. The
actress who interacted with the media at the launch event spoke at
length about Mardaani. Rani Mukherjee said, "We had many
titles but we chose Mardaani because when you say
Mardaani it becomes a spirit."
"I feel the term women-centric is a bit strange. We don't call a
normal film male-centric. It is either a good film or a bad film.
The content should be the king," the actress told the
"There are many love stories in which women had strong roles,
but the females were not the protagonists. Just because the female
protagonist is playing the title role, the mindset is such that
people call it a women-centric film. Yash Chopraji has directed so
many films where women had a strong role," said Rani, who is
married to late Yash Chopra's son Aditya.
When quizzed about Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor starrer
Singham Returns Rani said, "He (Ajay) is a huge star and
the film is a huge franchise. I have seen 'Singham' and I loved it.
Ours is a very small film and it's a small effort for all women.
'Mardaani' should not be compared to 'Singham
Returns', which is a huge film."
If reports are anything to go by, Kareena Kapoor has expressed a
desire to play a police officer on the big screen. And Rani
too feels that "Kareena will make a fantastic cop. There is lot of
scope in this industry to play different roles".
