Rani Mukerji‘s look in her forthcoming film Mardaani has been much talked about. The newly wed actress will be seen in an all-new avatar playing the role of a tough and ferocious police officer. Not only have the audiences been appreciating the trailer of the film, but also some of the well-known faces of the film industry including Aamir Khan and Karan Johar have praised Mardaani, as they await its release.

The 36-year-old actress has featured in a video in which she talks about an Israeli martial arts form Krav Maga that she learnt while filming Mardaani. No wonder Rani had to undergo vigorous training for the role of a fierce cop that she plays in the film! Considering the increase in the countless number of rapes happening in the country, Rani mentions that her only intention of featuring in this video is for girls is to learn self-defence techniques. The actress also lays stress on the fact that only physical strength of an individual is not important, the technique is.

The film has been produced by Rani’s hubby, producer Aditya Chopra. The two were on the front page of every newspaper as they secretly tied the knot in Italy in April 2013 and now there are rumours of Rani being pregnant as well.

Mardaani is slated to release worldwide on August 22.
