Delnaaz Irani is donning the role of a cop for her new show “Hijack”, which will air on Tata Sky Adbhut Kahaniyan. She said that her role is inspired by Rani Mukerji’s character in “Mardaani” and also praised her for portraying the role of a police officer with panache.

“Hijack”, a crime thriller, will see her essay a cop named Shivani Singh and has been produced in partnership with Shemaroo Entertainment and Sky High Pictures.

Talking about her character, the “Kya Mast Hai Life” actress said, “My character is inspired by Rani’s character in ‘Mardaani’. I have seen both the movies, and I think Rani has done a fabulous job. I have always been a huge fan of hers, more so with ‘Mardaani’. I have tried to replicate her style, and I have done it how she was in the movie.”

“Even when you think of Rani, you think of a sweet, delicate kind of girl, you do not think of her as a police officer. But she did it. So even with my personality, if Ujjwal and the team thought of me as a cop, I am sure they must have thought of something and I don’t think I have disappointed them because there are a lot of people in the team who called me up and said that they are super happy with the character and the episode. The channel is happy, and everything has gone right,” she added.
