"I am very, very happy. There has been an overwhelming response," the 36-year-old said here on Saturday at the inauguration of defense workshops for municipal schoolgirls.

"Across the globe people have given it a standing ovation, they are clapping. I think it has hit the right chord with everyone irrespective of the gender. The fact that we have tried to raise awareness has been conquered.

As team 'Mardaani' I am very grateful and hoping that in the coming days we would get to hear many more things," she added.

Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, ‘Mardaani’ stars Rani as police officer Shivaji Roy, who fights the girl trafficking mafia.
