BOLLYWOOD: Rani Mukerji was last seen three years ago, on the big screen in Mardani in 2014 where she played a tough cop fighting for the rights of an orphan girl. Channeling a role similar to that, she will be seen next in Hichki, which follows a school teacher with Tourette syndrome.
The trailer of the film was released on Tuesday and shows Rani’s struggles to get her low-income students the same treatment as their more privileged peers at an elite school in Mumbai. However, the trailer gives out positive vibes of hope and survival.
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Hichki is about a woman with Tourette Syndrome, who wants to be a teacher. Tourette Syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder that causes involuntary movements and sounds. In Naina’s case, it is a tic that forces her to make an involuntary noise.
However, this will not stop her from fighting against the school administration as they refuse to hire her. When they agree, she is asked to teach a class comprising economically underprivileged children, whom the school was forced to enroll as part of the RTI Act.
