Helmed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Hichki stars Rani Mukerji as an inspiring and self-motivated school teacher named Naina Mathur, who suffers from Tourrete syndrome. The film is based on Cohen’s autobiography ‘Front of the Class : How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had’. In the film, Rani’s story mirrors the life of Cohen, a respected and popular motivational speaker and teacher from the United States. Bankrolled by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, Rani’s Hichki is slated to hit big screens on March 23.
