Ever since the release of the film Hichki, there has been an outpour of love and appreciation for both — actress Rani Mukerji as well as the makers of the film. It has also managed to gather a decent footfall at the box-office. Amid all this, the Hichki team has another moment to celebrate; the film is to be screened for the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind on 31 April at Rashtrapati Bhavan, as per a report by DNA.

Maneesh Sharma, who has produced the film under the banner of Yash Raj Films, spoke to the publication about this development. "It is an incredible feeling to receive such love from audiences for Hichki. It is a matter of great pride for any filmmaker to have his/her film screened for the President of India. I’m extremely humbled that it is spreading such important social messages across the country," he said.

The film chronicles the journey and struggles of Mukerji's character, who has chosen to get into the tough profession of teaching — especially because of the fact that she has a speech defect known as the Tourette's Syndrome.

Hichki, released on 23 April, has been directed by Siddharth P Malhotra. The film also marked Mukerji's return to the silver screen after a four-year-long hiatus from acting (after the birth of her daughter Adira with husband Aditya Chopra).
