After her last film Mardaani hit the silver screen in 2014, Rani Mukerji will return to the silver screen after 4 years with her upcoming film Hichki. The Sidharth P Malhotra directorial tells of an inspiring story of a woman who turns her weakness into strength. As of now, the film is scheduled to hit the silver screen on February 23, 2018, and the trailer of the film may be attached with the Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai.
A source told DNA, “Hichki is a film for all age-groups and as a story, is relatable pan India. It is a happy and uplifting story of self-belief and celebrates human spirit and hope. The makers wanted Hindi moviegoers across India to sample the trailer, sit up and take notice of a film that has its heart in the right place. What could be better than attaching the Hichki trailer to Tiger Zinda Hai?’’ ALSO READ: Why Was Adira Chopra Not Clicked With Taimur Ali Khan, Yash And Roohi Johar?
“The makers have charted out an extensive strategy once the trailer hits the theatres. Rani will be fronting the campaign. She loves what the film is communicating and is thrilled about how the film has shaped up,” added the source.
Rani Mukerji, who will be seen on the silver screen for the first time after daughter Adira Chopra’s birthday, is really excited to return to films. She said, “I was looking for a script that would challenge and excite me. And Hichki came my way. Each of us has a weakness that pulls us back. It could be a disability or any condition but if we just look at it simply as a hiccup, we can emerge as a winner. It won’t come in the way of achieving our dreams. Hichki is built on this positive premise and I decided to take it up.” Hichki, produced by Maneesh Sharma and directed by Siddharth P Malhotra is slated to release on February 23, 2018.
