Hichki marks Rani Mukerji’s comeback to acting after a gap of 4 long years. Marriage and motherhood took priority for her during those years and it took a beautiful, heart-touching story from director Siddharth P Malhotra for Rani to return to her first love – acting. Rani has scripted a dream comeback of sorts with Hichki getting the thumbs up from critics and audiences alike as it has now registered a total of Rs 20.10 crore at the box-office in five days.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Hichki is ROCK-STEADY... Fri 3.30 cr, Sat 5.35 cr, Sun 6.70 cr, Mon 2.40 cr, Tue 2.35 cr. Total: ₹ 20.10 cr [961 screens]. India biz.”.

Helmed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Hichki stars Rani Mukerji as an inspiring and self-motivated school teacher named Naina Mathur, who suffers from Tourrete syndrome.
Speaking about the success of Hichki, Rani had shared, "With the incredible love that audiences have showered on Hichki and on me, they have proven that for them good cinema and good performance is the only thing that matters - not marital status, not parenthood. They have made me incredibly emotional. Audiences have celebrated working mothers today and I will be forever thankful to them. I'm grateful to my director Siddharth P. Malhotra and my producer Maneesh Sharma for giving me a project that will forever be the most special film of my career."
