Meet Tahir Raj Bhasin, the actor plays one of the leads in YRF upcoming movie Mardaani starring Rani Mukerjee which hits theaters on August 22nd.
Mardaani tells the tale of Shivani Shivaji Roy is an astute cop working in a Mumbai Crime Branch unit. Deft at picking up hidden clues and fearless in confronting hardened criminals, Shivani stumbles into the world of debauchery, cruel desires and exploitation and onto a case that will change her life forever.
A teenage girl is kidnapped by the child trafficking mafia and smuggled outside the city. Shivani embarks on an obsessive hunt for the girl and what follows is a cat and mouse game between a fearless cop and a ruthless mafia kingpin.
Starring Rani Mukerji in the lead, playing the role of a cop for the first time, this raw and gritty film will be a distinct departure from Pradeep Sarkar’s style of filmmaking.
Talking about casting him, YRF casting director Shanoo Sharma said in a recent interview, “Even though his pictures didn’t impress me, I felt there was something in him. Since then I auditioned him numerous times for different roles and soon realised that he had a spark. For Mardaani we wanted a villain who looked real, not larger than life. And Tahir fitted in, so I auditioned him with over hundred other talents but he stood out in his brilliance in the screen tests. Looking at the trailer, he has done a fantastic job in the film and is sure to be applauded by all. I am convinced he is here to stay.”
