Post Mardaani, Rani took break from films to take care of her daughter Adira Chopra. Rani Mukerji is married to the filmmaker and Chairman of Yash Raj Films, Aditya Chopra.
Talking about Hichki Rani 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.”
The story of Hichki revolves around the character of Rani, who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength.
Rani has confirmed that Hichki will release this year itself. Hichki is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, who previously directed the 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.
