There seems to be no end to films in the cop drama genre in Bollywood in the recent past. With Dabbang 3 just about ready to make a grand entry, Mardaani 2 starring Rani Mukerji has just opened at the big screen. The film was directed by Gopi Puthran and stars Rani Mukherjee in the role of a strong female cop named Shivani Shivaji Rao.
The film released on December 13 over 1600 screens all across the country. The film collected a total of Rs. 3.8 crores on its opening day. It's a slow start for the film but it is expected to do better in the upcoming days.
Rani's last film was Hichki back in 2018. Hichki received a lot of praise by critics and fans alike for the movie's portrayal of a specially-abled teacher. Mardaani 2 follows in the steps of portraying women in strong roles in Bollywood. It is the second part of the Mardaani franchise.
The story follows Shivani Shivaji Rao in her path to catch a serial rapist who targets women of all ages.
