Rani meets crime branch chief to prepare for 'Mardaani' role
Actress Rani Mukherjee, who is playing the role of a police officer in her next film 'Mardaani', today met the Mumbai Police Crime Branch chief Himanshu Roy to understand the nitty-gritty of an officer's job profile, body language and lifestyle.
The meeting between Rani and Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy lasted for nearly an hour at the latter's office at police headquarters in south Mumbai this evening.
"Rani is playing the role of a crime branch officer in her upcoming film 'Mardaani'. She wants to understand how a crime branch officer functions, ways in which officer probes various cases, officer's body language and lifestyle among others so that she could get accustomed to the officer's conduct," Roy said. Rani also tried to dig into the dangers being faced by an officer during an operation.
"She sought to understand the work schedules of an officer and dangers being faced during a police operation, etc. She was very keen to know various aspects of an officer's life," Roy explained.
However, the 35-year-old actress refused to speak to media after the meeting. 'Mardaani', a Yash Raj Films' (YRF) project will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar. Sarkar had earlier directed 'Laga Chunari Mein Daag' and 'Lafangey Parindey' for YRF. Rani's last outing with the banner was 'Dil Bole Hadippa', which failed to create magic at the box office. The shooting of the film is likely to begin soon.
