Rani Mukerji to make comeback with “Hichki”
Actress Rani Mukerji is all set to return to the big screen, nearly four years after she was last seen in 2014 film “Mardaani”.
Rani is married to Yash Raj Films boss Aditya Chopra and gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Adira, in 2015. Now that Adira is a year old, Rani is all set to return to her acting career. The actress will be seen in the Siddharth P Malhotra-directed “Hichki” (meaning hiccup), which will be produced by YRF talent Maneesh Sharma.
“I was looking for a script that would challenge and excite me, and 'Hichki' came my way,” Rani Mukerji said in a statement.
“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,” she added.
Rani Mukerji debuted in Bollywood in 1997 film “Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat” and has featured in popular films like “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...”, “Saathiya”, “Hum Tum”, “Veer Zaara”, “Black”, “Bunty Aur Babli”, “No One Killed Jessica” and “Talaash”.
Siddharth P Malhotra, who has directed “We Are Family” for Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, is working with YRF for the first time.
