Rani Mukherjee who next film ‘Mardaani’ is due to release on 22nd  August has got her eight-year-old niece to feature in a special promotional song for Pradeep Sarkar’s ‘Mardaani’.

Rani Mukerjee recently shot a special national anthem video along with real-life lady police officers in order to promote her film, ‘Mardaani’ and it is learnt that the actress has included her niece Myiesha Mukherjee in the song. A source says, “Rani plays a cop in the film and it was the creative team’s idea to make this video. We were initially planning to feature only female cops and but since the film deals with human trafficking, we included young girls as well. This is when Rani suggested that we rope in Myiesha, her brother Raja Mukerji’s daughter, in the video.”

Myiesha was so excited to appear in the song that she even got her friends to be a part of the video. The film’s spokesperson confirmed the story, “Pradeep Sarkar, who has directed the film, has also helmed this video. Myiesha was facing the camera for the first time but she was very confident and seemed to enjoy her stint. This video will be released soon and the anthem will played in theatres from this weekend onwards.”

‘Mardaani’ trailer was highly applauded by audience, celebrities, and industrialist. Aamir Khan is floored with Rani’s performance and action. The perfectionist sent a text to Rani praising her and said he really enjoyed the trailer. Aamir also shared the link of the trailer on Facebook.  

Based on child trafficking and directed by Pradeep Sarkar, ‘Mardaani’ is Rani’s first movie to get released post marriage to Yash Raj head honcho Aditya Chopra.

Delighted with the response, Rani says, "The response to the trailer has been exceptional. We have received positive feedback from all quarters. It has been overwhelming."

Cricketer Anjum Chopra and ace filmmakers including Karan Johar, Shekhar Kapoor, Raj Kumar Gupta and Ali Abbas Zafar also had word of praises for Rani. They all loved Rani's portrayal of a crime branch officer.
