Actress Rani Mukerji, who is playing the role of a police officer in her next film 'Mardaani', met with 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 Mukerji 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 Mukerji 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. The shooting of the film is likely to begin soon.
"She (Rani) met him as she is preparing for her role as a cop. This is part of her research for the film," sources aware of the development told PTI.
Rani Mukerji's last outing with the YRF banner was 'Dil Bole Hadippa', which failed to create magic at the box office.
