Over the years, Bollywood has had several male-based cop dramas with a few more big-budget ones coming up soon, Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi and Salman Khan's Dabangg 3. But when it comes to women cops, films were few and far in between. However, recent working stills from Mardaani 2 featuring Rani Mukerji and news of Kareena Kapoor Khan playing a cop in Angrezi Medium alongside Irrfan Khan, have moved focus back on this genre. Now news is that Anushka Sharma will also be playing a cop.
Sharma who was last seen in Zero, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif, has not announced any new film yet but if an entertainment newspaper report is to be believed, Anushka has found a brilliant script that will see her play the role of a woman police officer.
The film is believed to be strong on content and news is that it’s a challenging role that will require her to undergo intense prep before she begins filming. An official confirmation is yet awaited from the actress on this.
While there is more development on this front, you stay tuned to Box Office India for more news and scoops from the film world.
