Mardaani 2

Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2 has shocked and gripped the nation with its brilliant storyline that is inspired by shocking true crimes against women by juveniles. The edge-of-the-seat thriller will see Rani in a race against time to capture a brutal serial rapist who systematically targets women. Mardaani 2 has definitely sparked a conversation on the threat this poses on young women and girls and the spiking rate of violent crimes in India.

Writer and director of Mardaani 2, Gopi Puthran says, “Rise in violent crimes committed by juveniles in India is a serious threat to our society and after reading so many instances of heinous rapes and cases of violence against women it shook me from the core. Mardaani 2 is an extremely relevant film for India and the youth of our country.”

He adds, “It is a reflection of the society that we are living in and the issue that is plaguing the future of so many girls and women. And that’s why I chose to write and direct Mardaani 2 and I want the film’s message to reach as many people of our country as possible because it’s time there’s a collective change in the way women are perceived in our country.”

Rani is reprising the role of the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy in the film. She had delivered a knock-out performance in the superhit and hugely acclaimed prequel, Mardaani, in which she took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket. Produced by Aditya Chopra, Mardaani 2 will be Rani’s next release after the global blockbuster Hichki that delivered 250 crores worldwide. Mardaani 2 is set to hit theatres on 13th December.

Amitabh Bachchan: She was a sprightly young enthusiastic dance assistant to one of the major dance directors of the time .. of the time when I was just beginning .. of the film ‘Bandhe Haath’ with the heart throb of millions Mumtaz .. with the director OP Ralhan .. Mumtaz’s grace and acceptance to agree to work with this newbe .. she a stratospheric Star , me a nobody ..
.. and Saroj ji in the crowd of dancers in a song .. her subtle grace when she moved .. the expressions , the delicate little intricacies of each word and movement .. she was just so exceptional .. she was pregnant with child during the shoot , but never deterred from her work .. at one point I saw her , quite alarmingly , finding the foetus had shifted in her stomach and she simply unabashedly pushed it into place , and carried on .. dancing ..
.. and then over the years .. she excelled and attained the podium title of Dance Director .. or as the language changed , the Choreographer of film .. her moves becoming famous for each artist she worked with .. and the love and affection she gave to all that came under her guidance .. and when she would see an artist give a good shot under her care .. she would call her or him aside .. and ..
.. give a rupee coin .. as a gesture .. as a pat on the back .. a ‘shagun’ ..
.. many many years later .. during the song sequence of a film I was doing .. I became the recipient of that coin .. an immense achievement ..
Saroj ji .. you gave us and the industry , rhythm, style, grace of movement and the art of converting the lyrics in a song to a meaning in dance ..
