“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,” Rani said in a statement.
Mardaani 2 is set to go on floors in 2019 and will release in the later half of the year. Rani Mukerji was last seen in the much appreciated film Hickhi, which released in February this year.
