The actress’ Hichki is all set for a March 23 release and the trailer has already got thumbs up from fans. The film is all about overcoming one’s weaknesses and turning them into strengths. No wonder then, when the actress was on a dance reality show recently, she had to ask about the ‘Hichki’ in the show’s judge Mithun Chakraborty’s career. The actress was promoting her film on Dance India Dance when she quizzed Mithun Da about the biggest challenge he had to face when starting out in Bollywood.
Like a true sport, the yesteryear super star opened up about the one thing that initially bogged him down and how he turned things around to rise against all odds. Talking about his Hichki, Mithun da revealed that it was his complexion that people talked about. He was mocked so much so that it started bothering him and he often broke down, crying alone in his car or while hiding in some corner. But what he did next to make people stop talking about his ‘weakness’ is truly inspiring. Watch video to know how Mithun Da went from being made fun of for his complexion to becoming one of the most loved and successful superstars of yesteryear.

In the film Hichki, Rani plays the character of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. Hichki focuses on turning disadvantages into opportunities. It is also a subtle reminder about discrimination that exists in our society and has become a part of our daily lives. It highlights this through the story of Naina, who faces discrimination from our society that firmly believes she cannot be a teacher because of her disorder. The film is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma.
