MUMBAI — After marriage, she essayed a policewoman in “Mardaani,” and then took time off for motherhood. Now, Rani Mukerji will return to acting with Yash Raj Films’ “Hichki,” to be directed by Siddharth P. Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma.
She will be seen in a positive and an inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength. Mukerji elaborates, “I was looking for a script that would challenge and excite me, and this 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.”
This 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 movie with Yash Raj Films.
