Actress Rani Mukerji is gearing up for a bold and powerful role in Yash Raj Films' next project titled "Mardaani". It will be directed by the acclaimed Pradeep Sarkar.

Known for producing romantic movies like "Dil To Pagal Hai" "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Hum Tum" and "Veer-Zaara", YRF is now said to take up one of its boldest subjects in "Mardaani".

"Starring Rani Mukerji in the lead, playing the role of a cop for the first time, the raw and gritty film will be YRF's boldest subject ever to be made and a distinct departure from Pradeep Sarkar's style of filmmaking," Rafiq Gangjee, vice president (Marketing and Communications), YRF, said in a statement.

The movie is expected to go on the floors later this year. It is slated to release worldwide in 2014.
