Rani Mukerji is all set to play a crime branch officer in Mardaani, which is backed by husband Aditya Chopra’s production house. And the actor, who was last seen in Karan Johar’s short segment in Bombay Talkies (2013), has put her best foot forward to portray a cop in the film.
The actor had reportedly met Mumbai Police’s crime branch chief, Himanshu Roy, in December last year to understand the nitty-gritty of the job. "Rani tried to understand their body language, the way they talk, job profile and the manner in which they probe cases. So, the officials know that she is playing a cop in her next, and are awaiting its release," says a source close to the actor.
And now, after watching the trailer of the film, senior police officers have called the actor to appreciate her performance. When contacted, the spokesperson of the movie confirmed that crime branch officials from across the country had called to applaud Rani’s portrayal of a cop.
Delighted with the response,
says, "The response to the trailer has been exceptional. We have received positive feedback from all quarters. It has been overwhelming."
