In past, so many Bollywood films were made which had physical and mental disabilities as their main theme. Margarita, with a Straw, showcased a person suffering from cerebral palsy and a blind person while My Name is Khan had a person suffering from autism.

Taare Zameen Par showcased dyslexia, which is a common learning disability in children while Barfi was a quirky tale of autism and deafness.

On March 21 Rani Mukerji turns 40. And two days after her birthday, Hichki, her comeback film after maternity break, will be hitting the theatres. Mukerji took a break after Mardaani to focus on starting a family and after that she was caught up with Adira. She is single-handedly carrying Hichki on her shoulders, in which she plays Naina Mathur, a teacher with Tourette syndrome. The Yash Raj Films production is an adaptation of Brad Cohen’s "Front of the Class: How Tourette syndrome made me the Teacher I Never Had".

Rani will cross another milestone in October: it will be 20 years since the release of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. In this Karan Johar production, Mukerji played the glamorous Tina. This rom-com was a turning point in her career that including Ghulam, Black, Hum Tum, Bunty Aur Babli and No One Killed Jessica.

Main themes of ‘Hichki’

This film will show how to overcome your Tourette syndrome and reach out for your dreams. The parents in a child’s life need to see the child suffering from Tourette syndrome as a differently abled child instead of disabled. These children need special teachers and special attention, not because they have a problem but because they need love and care because they are special. The initial years of upbringing are very important for these children and the love, care, attention, and upbringing can make all the difference in their lives.

Making a comment on the education system

Yes! The film also shows what`s wrong with our education system and how discrimination happens towards a person with a disability in this society. It`s high time that society needs to change the way it thinks. Cause you never know the weakness of a person can be his biggest strength. Who are you to be judgmental or discriminate?

Such a nice concept! So when are you guys booking your tickets?
