Mardaani/ Mardani Meaning [मर्दानी]

Mardaani as such is an adjective, which means like a man, manly, but here it's used more like a noun which would mean a brave lady.

The word mardaani was used by Hindi Poet Subhadrakumari Chauhan in her poetry for Rani Lakshmi Bai, who fought against the British for her kingdom when her husband died.

The word was used because she fought like any man would, at a time when women rarely went out of their homes and were not expected to fight in wars.

Mardaani is also title for an upcoming Hindi film starring Rani Mukerjee, where she's taking up the role of a brave cop who fights against the odds.
