If there is one mainstream Bollywood actress we miss the most on screen, it has to be Rani Mukherjee. The actress who has always mesmerised us by her powerful performances on screen had taken a break post the birth of her baby girl Adira. And now she is all set to make a comeback on the big screen and we couldn’t have been more excited! The reigning actress will return to do what she loves doing the most. She will be seen in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Hichki’, to be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma.
With ‘Hichki’, she will be seen in a positive and inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength. Rani elaborates, “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 as simply 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.” (ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut remembers how Aditya Chopra once wrote her off and called her a FAILURE!

While the project still seems to be in its initial stages, it would be interesting to see Rani returning to the silver screen with this film. Earlier when director Sidharth was asked about the film, he remained tight-lipped about the development and said, “I would not deny the fact that I did go to Yash Raj but nothing is locked yet.” He continued, adding, “At this point of time, I can’t talk about anything as nothing is confirmed — there is no paper work done, nothing has been locked. I would love to work with Rani; it’s my dream to work with her. (ALSO READ: Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji go Befikre! Spotted at a dinner date without daughter Adira)
‘Hichki’ will be Maneesh Sharma’s third film as a producer with Yash Raj Films after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ and the forthcoming ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. Siddharth P Malhotra, who has directed ‘We Are Family’ will be making his first film with Yash Raj Films.
