Actress Rani Mukerji’s comeback film Hichki will now release in Russia on the occasion of Teachers Day. Post receiving a standing ovation at the Shanghai Film Festival a few weeks back, the film will be screened for the Russian audiences as well.
Talking about the same, producer Maneesh Sharma said, “Hichki has touched the hearts of audiences across age-groups, across countries. The film moved audiences at the Shanghai Film Festival where it was screened recently. Now that the film is releasing in Russia, we expect audiences to feel the same emotions that people across the world are feeling after seeing the movie. The relevancy of the subject and the film’s intention to affect a positive social change is appealing universally and thus breaks the language barriers across the globe.”
Adding to the excitement, director Siddharth P Malhotra said, “It’s really heartening that ‘Hichki’ will now release in Russia. The movie professes the message of the fact of making your worst obstacle within you and convert it into your biggest strength by embracing it and working each day to win over it. I’m really excited to see the reaction of audiences in Russia.”
The film will be dubbed in the Russian language and will release on September 6.
Hichki was very well received by the Indian audience and received a thumbs up from the critics as well. The film was a Box-Office success.
Produced by Maneesh Sharma and directed by Sidharth P Malhotra, Hichki released in the month of March this year.
