Bollywood star Rani Mukerji was invited to meet the local police in Kota along with their families at an informal gathering.
The star, who is currently in Rajasthan shooting 'Mardaani 2', is reprising her role as Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy for the film. Mukerji was elated at the fact that she would also be meeting the city's top female cop, Dr Amrita Duhan, the Assistant Superintendent of Police.
“About 300 police officers and their families met Rani and of course both Rani and the cops had a great time interacting with each other. Rani was thrilled to meet the female top cop of Kota who welcomed her to the gathering and also presided over the super interactive interaction with the city cops. Rani is a much-loved actor of the country given her incredible body of work and she went out of her way to ensure the cops and their families have a great time,” an eyewitness revealed.
Sources reveal the star thanked the Kota police for their support while filming 'Mardaani 2' and believes the film will make police officers in Rajasthan and all over India very proud. "She specially dedicated the film to all the women police officers of the country who work tirelessly and courageously to safeguard law and order and protect the innocent. Rani was overwhelmed with the warm response of the cops and their families towards her,” sources revealed.
Rani delivered a knock-out performance in the prequel, 'Mardaani', playing Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy. In the first film, her character took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket. There is already a lot of buzz around the new film. Questions still remain about what the crime is and who the villain will be.
The film is produced by Aditya Chopra and it also marked the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, who was the writer of 'Mardaani'. Rani was last seen in the global blockbuster 'Hichki'.
