Mumbai: Actress Rani Mukherjee will be teaming up with Yash Raj Films (YRF) for a project titled Mardaani in which she will act as a police officer for the first time. The film will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar.

"Rani will be doing Mardaani. It will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar. She will be playing a police officer in the film," a spokesperson of Yash Raj Films (YRF) said. The movie is supposed to be raw and gritty, something that Sarkar and Rani both have never done.

This year Rani will be seen in Bombay Talkies that celebrates 100 years of Indian Cinema as well as in a guest appearance in Rohit Shetty's Sha Rukha and Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express. Pradeep Sarkar had earlier directed Laga Chunari Mein Daag and Lafangey Parindey for YRF.

Rani's last outing with the banner was Dil Bole Hadippa, which failed to create magic at the box office. The shooting of the film is likely to begin by this year end.
