In the near future, Rani Mukerji will return to the big screen in Mardaani 3, the third installment of the Mardaani franchise. Fans are eager to see the actress return to the action-packed franchise after she revealed the news. Rani plays the role of the determined cop Shivani Shivaji Roy in the Yash Raj Films produced franchise.

Now, Zoom reported that the script for the movie has been locked, and production is anticipated to begin shortly. According to the source, Gopi Puthrans spent months writing the screenplay for the movie, and producer Aditya Chopra, Rani's husband, has now given it the go-ahead. The remainder of the film's cast is currently being discussed by the makers.

Rani previously stated, “I, as an actor, always believe that we don’t want to do a film because it sounds good. We need to do a film when the script is good, and when we want to make a film that makes a difference," in reference to Mardaani 3. She added that the team can't afford to produce a film like Mardaani 3 if the story lacks depth. 

"It has to be something that people relate to today; the girls find it empowering. Only then we can do Mardaani 3. We can’t do it just because it sounds exciting. So I am hoping if they can crack a really good script, I would just like to get on with it,” she added.
