Rani Mukherjee will be making her comeback on the big screen with an upcoming Yash Raj Film ‘Hichki’. The film is produced by Maneesh Sharma and directed by Siddharth P Malhotra.
The announcement was made through YRF’s PR:

The actress had taken some time off from films for almost two and a half years to celebrate motherhood, but now plans on returning to Bollywood with a banger.
“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.”
Rani’s character will have a very uncommon disability where one starts to jump and shout uncontrollably. This may be about Tourette Syndrome. Reportedly, the protagonist of the movie was male, Emraan Hashmi and Abhishek Bachchan had been approached for the role but they declined. However, the producer agreed to back his film on the condition that the gender of the lead should be changed.
The shooting for Hichki will begin very soon.
