Rani Mukerji is set to entertain the audience with her next film Mardaani 2. The actress will be seen playing the role of a courageous Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy in the action-packed sequel. She is currently shooting for the film in the blistering summer heat of Rajasthan. While chasing the merciless villain from the film, Rani is shooting a few chase scenes under the scorching sun on the days when the temperature is more than 40 degrees!
“The temperature in Kota is over 40 degrees now and within a few days, it will cross 43 degrees. It is an extremely difficult shooting schedule especially since we are shooting in the middle of the day under the beating summer sun of Rajasthan. All the scenes have Rani investigating and looking for this heinous criminal and we also shot a chase sequence in one of the hottest days in Kota,” informs a production source.
Here are some pictures:
The source further adds, “It was a long chase sequence in this boiling heat and we wanted to wrap this shot in one take. Rani is known to nail most scenes in one take and she did the same on this occasion too but since it was a chase sequence, she insisted that we shoot it a couple of times so that we have variations of the shot. It was hot and we could see she was getting dehydrated but she nailed each take. The entire crew got really motivated seeing her level of commitment. The shooting team is not used to this heat and Rani’s commitment really got the entire team going.”
Earlier, Rani was immensely appreciated for her outstanding performance in Mardaani which was released in 2014. She played a cop in hot pursuit of child traffickers in the movie and was applauded by the audience. Produced by Aditya Chopra, Mardaani 2 will be Rani’s next release after the global blockbuster Hichki.
