Rani plays the character of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome, that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. Hichki is a story about turning disadvantages into opportunities and staring down at challenges that life throws.

The Siddharth P Malhotra directed movie is also a subtle reminder about discrimination that exists in our society and how it has become a part of our daily lives.

In Hichki, Rani Mukerji's character Naina faces discrimination from a society that firmly believes she cannot be a teacher because of her disorder. Progressive, brave and positive, the movie is about the power of will and determination.
