Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji is back and how! A sneak peek into “Mardaani” via its trailer, which was launched here Tuesday, shows the actress as a bold, strong and fearless police officer who takes on the child trafficking mafia head on.
The description of the trailer on YouTube reads – “Bold. Strong. Fearless. Watch Rani Mukerji in YRF’s boldest movie ever, ‘Mardaani’.” And it truly seems to be. Produced by Rani’s husband Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films (YRF) banner, and directed by Pradeep Sarkar, “Mardaani” comes across as a raw and gritty tale in which the actress seems to be displaying women power at its best.
She kicks, slaps, runs, punches – everything a Bollywood ‘hero’ would do. There are no frills to her look – it’s simple, understated and suits her role to a T. In “Mardaani”, she plays Shivani Shivaji Roy, an officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch unit. Her character seems to be no-nonsense. The trailer proves that there is a serious social issue that the film tackles in a smart and gripping way. The movie is slated to release Aug 22.
