When Rani Mukerji gave male cops of B-Town a run for their money
When it comes to playing cops on the big screen we always remember Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar etc. who immortalised the uniform. But, do we remember any actress who has played a cop on the big screen? Well, there are not many but a few actresses have played the role of a cop on the big screen, and one of them is Rani Mukerji who is undoubtedly the best actress we have in the industry.
On August 22, 2014, we saw a brilliant film on the big screen titled ‘Mardaani’. Rani Mukerji played the role of a cop in the film and gave a fantastic performance. Well, as we said Rani is one of the few actresses who have played a cop on the big screen, and believe us, she was much better than our male actors who had donned the khakee in their movies. Rani’s performance as Shivani Shivaji Roy would give our male actors a run for their money.
We are still in an awe of the dialogue, ‘Apne papa ko mera naam thikse bol, Shivani Shivaji Roy. Ukkhad ukkhad jo ukkhadne ka hai’.
The movie tackled a very sensitive issue of child trafficking, and had received amazing reviews. Even though it was a woman-centric movie, ‘Mardaani’ made a mark at the box office and was a hit. The movie proved that good content, great narration and amazing performances can do wonders at the box office.

YRF is known to make love stories and action-dramas, but it was for the first time when they were venturing into a serious and intense film like ‘Mardaani’. Well, the Pradeep Sarkar directorial was the first YRF film to get an ‘A’ certificate from CBFC.
After the success of ‘Mardaani’, there were reports that Pradeep Sarkar is planning a sequel to the film. However, we are still waiting for an official announcement of it.
