Rani is all set to start her first film post maternity break
Her last film was Mardaani and her role of a policewoman was much appreciated in Mardaani, Now, Rani Mukerji will return to acting. She will star in Yash Raj Films’ Hichki, to be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma.
With Hichki, she will be seen in a positive and inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength. Rani elaborates, “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 Sharma’s third film as a producer with Yash Raj Films after Dum Laga Ke Haisha and the forthcoming Meri Pyaari Bindu. Siddharth P Malhotra, who has directed We Are Family will be making his first film with Yash Raj Films.
Rani and Aditya Chopra’s daughter Adira turned one on December 9 last year and the speculation of Rani’s comeback have been doing the rounds for a long time. Reportedly Siddharth had offered this film to Abhishek Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi earlier, but both rejected it. Later when Aditya took it over, he asked Siddharth to bring a twist in the story, and make into a female-centric film
