December saw the release of the of much-awaited trailer and the comeback movie of Rani Mukerji’s Hichki.
The trailer was well received and much appreciated by her fans and cinema lovers. Now the makers have released a new poster from the film with the changed release date on it.
Check out the poster below.
The poster sees Rani Mukherji leading her class of underprivileged children and battling her disorder alongside. The plot of the film revolves around Rani who plays a gifted teacher suffering from Tourette’s syndrome, a neuropsychiatric disorder and how she turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength.
Earlier the film was scheduled to release on 23rd February 2018 but it was postponed to 23rd March by the makers, who consider it the ideal time for the release of the film. Producer Maneesh Sharma clarified the reason behind this change of date saying, “The YRF team decided that 23 March 2018 is the best release date for Hichki, especially given the post-exam scenario for students and families – the most relevant target audience for this film.”
Talking about Hichki Rani had earlier said on Facebook Live, “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.”
Hichki is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, who previously directed Kajol, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Rampal starrer We Are Family. The film was produced under the banner of Dharma Productions and was the official remake of 1998’s Hollywood flick Stepmom. It will be the 3rd film for Maneesh Sharma as a producer along with Yash Raj Films after Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Meri Pyaari Bindu.
Hichki celebrates the human spirit of endurance and self-belief to rise against all odds. It will release on March 23, 2018.
