Rani Mukerji had impressed one and all in her fearless cop-avatar in 'Mardaani' way back in 2014. Five years later, Mukerji is back on the screen at Shivani Shivaji Roy in 'Mardaani 2'. 

The trailer of the film was released on Thursday and it shows Mukerji as the fierce police office, out to nab notorious rapists.

Narrating a grisly tale of rape, the trailer starts by flashing a data by NCRB which read, "More than 2000 rape crimes are committed by boys under 18 years in India every year. These are only registered cases."

Set in Kota, the trailer chronicles a brutal assault on a girl who was murdered after being "tortured and raped." 

It shows scenes shifting between the crime scene, testing lab and police station until Rani is heard saying in a press conference that she will surely catch the monster.

The chilling sequel to the 2014 hit `Mardaani` is directed by Gopi Puthran, writer of the first film, who is making his directorial debut with this film which is said to be based on true events.

It is slated to open in theatres on December 13.
