“The makers have zeroed in on a young boy who will take on Rani in this much awaited sequel. It will be a debut for this boy and everyone is telling us that he is a performer to watch out for. If Adi has chosen him to be pitted against a powerful performer like Rani, one can imagine that he is a talent to watch out for. The role requires a menacing, blood-chilling performance and we are excited to find out who this young boy is,” revealed our source.
Mardaani 2 is being directed by debutant Gopi Puthran, who wrote the first super-hit film. Produced by Aditya Chopra, this will be Rani’s next release after the superhit Hichki that was hugely acclaimed by audiences and critics the world over and became a blockbuster in China.
