Protest against Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2

Residents of Kota on Friday met Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla, an MP from Kota, to register their protest against the forthcoming Bollywood film Mardaani 2, starring Rani Mukerji. They said that the city has been positioned as an educational hub with many educational centres situated in its vicinity. However, the film shows a different story of the city.

The film's trailer, released on Thursday, shows a serial rapist and murderer who targets young girls in Kota. It also mentions that the film is inspired by true events. 

Birla after meeting protestors spoke to media and said that the issue would be discussed with the concerned people. "It is unacceptable to malign a city's name through cinema. The fictional story clearly mentioning the city's name is not justified," he added.

The film has Rani Mukerji playing a police officer -- Shivani Shivaji Roy, who vows to catch the serial rapist in two days.

Hence, soon after the trailer was released on Thursday, Kota residents came out to protest against the film demanding the name of Kota to be removed from the film.

Mardaani 2 was many scenes being shot in Kota. In fact, Rani Mukerji was in the city for many days for the shoot.
