Bollywood is ready for the return of its very own queen, Rani Mukerji.
The Filmfare award winner is known for her husky voice, small stature, and the talent that can go toe to toe with some of the film industry’s heavy weights.
Mukerji will be releasing her first film, Hichki, since the birth of her daughter Adira (with Producer Aditya Chopra) in 2015. Mukerji was last seen on the silver screen as a police officer in Sardeep Sarkar’s 2014 crime thriller Mardaani.
The film, which is slated to release the 23rd of February 2018, is based on Brad Cohen’s book, Front of the Class. With Hichki, she will be seen in a positive and inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her greatest strengths. She plays the role of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds.
Mukerji spoke on the film at the launch of the film’s first trailer, “Hichki is about an underdog and how you overcome the obstacles in life.”
She says, “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 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.”
With the coming of a new year and a new blockbuster ready to set the box office on fire audiences are really ready for Rani!
