He further added, “It is not only about inclusion, in so many ways that it naturally is due to Tourette’s and the difference between the haves and have-nots but it is also about accepting and understanding your own Tourette’s which are within all of us and befriending it so that a right attitude towards life and all makes one happy.” Rani Mukherjee has impressed all of us with Hichki as the movie has earned around Rs 8.75 crores in the box office. Of course, that’s not a great number but it had got a limited screen space and the subject was also niche. Stay tuned to India.com for more news!
