Mardaani 2 is competing with the Hollywood biggie Jumanji: The Next Level, and Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor's thriller, The Body. Jumanji: The Next Level overtook Mardaani 2 on the first day, making Rs 6.20 crore. However, Mardaani 2 has been getting strong word-of-mouth publicity and may see a spike in collections during the weekend.

The film marks the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, who served as a writer on the first installment, which was directed by Pradeep Sarkar. It featured Rani as a fierce cop who took on the kingpin of a child trafficking racket, played by Tahir Raj Bhasin.

While talking about the film, Rani had previously mentioned, "Shivani will face a cold, merciless villain who has no empathy, no fear of God and is pure evil. The character has been written superbly and I'm excited to find out who the actor will be."
