Rani Mukerji has been doing lesser films in the recent past but whatever she is doing is turning out to be a massive crowd-puller. From ‘Mardaani’ to ‘Hichki’ to ‘Mardaani 2’ to Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ – all have been women-led films and have done exceedingly well. The only film of hers which didn’t end up doing well recently was ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. Even though it was a sequel to her 2005 film ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, the film didn’t have the zest that the first instalment had. Now, she is all set to be back for the third instalment in the ‘Mardaani’ franchise.

Yes, you read that right. Rani Mukerji will once again don the police officer’s uniform to play Shivani Shivaji Roy, the no-nonsense cop who won billions of hearts with her fearless attitude.

As per a report on Zoom, the film’s script has been given the green light by Rani Mukerji’s hubby dearest Aditya Chopra, after Gopi Puthran wrote the script with months of research and minute detailing. The first film grossed Rs 59.55 Crores globally while the second film earned Rs 67.12 Crores at the worldwide box-office. Will the third instalment break the Rs 100 Crores barrier?

Reports claim that the movie’s cast is being decided now with Rani Mukerji at the centre of it all. The shooting will mostly begin early next year and it might see the light of day by the end of 2024 or the start of 2025.

On the work front, Rani Mukerji has been all over the news since the time she appeared on ‘Koffee With Karan 8’ alongside her cousin sister Kajol. This wasn’t the first appearance of the two together on the show, but this was definitely the most memorable one. The two had been a laugh riot on the show, which is hosted by Karan Johar, who had the two ladies in his first film directorial, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’. Since then, the two actresses have been lucky mascots for Karan Johar, as he has tried and used them even if it's for a small cameo appearance in his films.
