In his previous reports, Mr Adarsh stated that Mardaani 2's opening weekend business, which is Rs 18.15 crore, is better than Rani Mukerji's previous films such as Hichki and Mardaani. Here's what he tweeted:
Directed by Gopi Puthran, the film showcases cop Shivani Roy's (played by Rani) hunt for a serial rapist in the small town of Kota. Other than Rani Mukerji, the film also features Vishal Jethwa, Vikram Singh Chauhan and Shruti Bapna in pivotal roles.
Mardaani 2 opened to decent reviews on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film three stars out of 5 and wrote: "Rani Mukherji, reprising the role that she played in Mardaani, is as good as ever. She channels the potent force of the author-backed character to come up with a power-packed performance that is impressive as much for its emotive range as for its restraint."
