Last seen in Bombay Talkies, Rani Mukerji will now be seen in her hubby Aditya Chopra’s next titled Mardaani. Playing the role of a cop, Rani will be seen in an action packed avatar. However, we now hear that the actress will reprise the role inspired by a real life lady police officer who has solved several child trafficking cases in the country.
Talking about her role, ATS chief Himanshu Roy says, “Rani approached us when she was preparing for her role. She wanted to play it realistically and we have just helped her do that. She wanted to know in detail about the challenges faced by cops and the lifestyle we lead. So we put her in touch with two lady officers from the crime branch. She then spent some time with them to get a better idea about their lives.”
Roy also reveals that the actress went on to meet the lady police offer whose life has inspired Rani’s character in the film. “I cannot reveal her name but yes, she was an officer at the crime branch,” he says.
Also, the production house has maintained a lot of secrecy around the film and the crew have signed a non- disclosure clause with the production house. This means that they are not at liberty to share any information about the film with the media at this stage.
Mardaani revolves around a teenage girl who is kidnapped and smuggled out the city by child traffickers and how Rani’s character embarks on a hunt for the girl.
