Mumbai: Rani Mukherji’s last outing at the Box Office was in 2014 when the actress played the power-packed policewoman in ‘Mardaani’. Post ‘Mardaani’ released, the beautiful actress welcomed motherhood as she and Aditya Chopra were blessed with daughter Adira. And it is since then that the actress has been missing from the silver screen.
Finally the wait is over. Rani is all set to make a comeback at the 70mm screen with ‘Hichki’. The film is to be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and will be produced by Maneesh Sharma. The production house confirmed the news, and quoted, “She will be seen in a positive and inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength.”
Rani too opened up about the project, and 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 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’ will be Maneesh’s third production after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ and ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. However, this the first time that Sidharth will be working with the banner.
