The total collections of this riveting thriller, which is now playing in 800 screens in the second week, is now at 29.20 crore nett.
Rani is reprising the role of the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy in the film. She had delivered a knock-out performance in the superhit and hugely acclaimed prequel, Mardaani, in which she took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, Mardaani 2 is Rani’s next release after the global blockbuster Hichki that delivered 250 crores worldwide.
