The untitled film is said to be a biopic that will give out a social message. Directed by We Are Family director Siddharth P Malhotra, it will be produced by husband Aditya Chopra-owned Yash Raj Films.

Mukerji's last film Mardaani, where she played the role of a daring cop, was also produced under the same banner.

DNA reports, “Rani plays the central lead in Siddharth’s film. Like Mardaani, this one too will deal with a strong social issue. He narrated the script to Adi first and then Rani. They both loved it and Adi will produce the film. Siddharth, Adi and Rani have been meeting and working out the project regarding dates et al.”

The actress is currently busy with her 10-month-old daughter Adira and will begin shooting for the film only after she turns a year old. The film is most likely to go on floors in the second half of 2017.

According to a Filmfare report, before Rani Mukerji the role was offered to Priyanka Chopra.
