The petite babe will don the khaki in Chopra scion’s forthcoming production
Rani Mukerji is a versatile actor. The 35-year-old star has portrayed a variety of roles in her career spanning over 15 years. But never has Rani played a cop in any of her myriad films. And now the petite babe will get that rare opportunity to tot guns and bash goons as she dons the khaki for Yash Raj Films’ next production, Mardaani. Pradeep Sarkar, who has films like Parineeta, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag and Lafangey Parindey to his credit, will direct this venture. Sarkar, who has worked with Rani in Laaga Chunari Main Daag, was keen to rope in Vidya Balan for Mardaani but later he felt Rani would fit the bill better. “Vidya is my favourite. But I have other favourites too. And Rani is definitely one of them. I have a very comfortable equation with Rani. And things just fell into place as far as Rani’s inclusion in the film is concerned. I told Adi that we should go with Rani in Mardaani,” said Sarkar in an interview to a daily.
Now we wonder if producer Aditya Chopra, who has been romantically linked with Rani, had a final say as far as the babe’s inclusion in the cop drama is concerned. Also Rani gave us a glimpse of her fierce and ferocious personality by playing an aggressive journalist in No One Killed Jessica. But given her petite frame the babe really has to work hard to portray a dashing cop convincingly. Tell us what do you think dear BollywoodLifers, will Rani make a good cop in Mardaani?
