Actor Rani Mukerji is set to star in Mardaani 2, a sequel to her 2014 critically acclaimed hit.

Rani has currently reached to that stage of her career where she is not signing any films just for the heck of doing. The actress has been taking a lot more time in reading scripts and signing some memorable roles for her.

In 2014, she gave a smashing performance as a cop in ‘Mardaani'. The film was based on human trafficking and is termed as one of her best films so far. The actress was last seen in the film Hichki (2018). Now, the makers of Mardaani are planning to make a sequel with Rani as the lead in the film.

Rani confirmed her return in a statement, “Mardaani is and will always be extremely close to my heart. Right since its release, everyone has asked me time and again when I would be doing Mardaani 2 and I'm sure this announcement will come as a pleasant surprise to them all. Gopi has written an extraordinary script that we all love and I can't wait to start shooting this film soon," Indian media reported.

Rani also added that she will face a cold, merciless villain who has no empathy, no fear of God and is pure evil.
