Rani was last seen in Pradeep Sarkar’s ‘Mardaani’.
Mumbai: Rani Mukherjee had immersed herself in marital bliss post the release of Pradeep Sarkar’s successful 2014 directorial ‘Mardaani’.
The actress, who had been on an indefinite break has finally decided to come back into the thick of things.
Rani has done a photoshoot, where she is looking ethereal as ever, glowing in motherhood, with her daughter, Adira, having recently turned a year old.
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 had earlier elaborated, “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.
