Mardaani 2 is the sequel to the 2014 movie Mardaani and Rani Mukerji has reprised her role as cop Shivani Roy in the film. It showcases how Shivani Roy tries to capture a rapist cum serial killer. Other than Rani Mukerji, Mardaani 2 also feature Vishal Jethwa, Vikram Singh Chauhan and Shruti Bapna.
Mardaani 2 took off on a good note on December 13. Reviewing the film for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave the movie three stars and wrote: "Mardaani 2 is a taut, fast-paced cop-on-a-mission thriller that eschews Bollywood frills and delivers a grim, gritty, grinding account of a tough-as-nails superintendent of police out to nab a juvenile serial rapist who brutalizes and kills his victims."
Earlier, talking about his film, Rani Mukerji, who plays a fearless cop in Mardaani 2, said that "there aren't better police officers than female police officers." She was quoted as saying by news agency IANS: "I want more and more girls and women of our country to choose the police department as their profession because personally as a citizen of this country. I feel that there aren't better police officers than female police officers."
Directed by Gopi Puthran, Mardaani 2 has been produced by Rani's filmmaker husband Aditya Chopra.
