The success of 'Hichki' in China proves just that. We knew we had made a special film but for it to get so much love and acclaim from audiences across the globe is an extremely proud and humbling moment for all of us."

Titled 'Teacher with Hiccup' for its Chinese release, Hichki released in China on 12th October. Making a special effort to ensure that this film with its universal theme and an extremely positive message resonates with Chinese audiences, Rani promoted the film extensively across leading Chinese cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Chengdu.
The film has also been receiving worldwide acclaim and honours ever since its release. It received a standing ovation at the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) and then at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) where Rani was also bestowed the Best Actress award.
