Published: 12th March 2018

Rani Mukerji is organising a special screening in the US for the real-life inspiration of her forthcoming film Hichki, popular motivational speaker Brad Cohen, and his students.

In the film, Rani plays a teacher living with Tourette syndrome. It is inspired by Cohen's real-life story, wherein he turned his nervous system disorder to an advantage.

Hichki director Siddharth P Malhotra says, "Brad's life story is now a Bollywood movie and, of course, he is thrilled to see his journey releasing in India. Rani has read Brad Cohen's book Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had and has researched the story of his life thoroughly for an authentic portrayal of her character. She wants Brad and his students to watch the film. Brad is well aware of Rani's stellar body of work as an actor and that makes the film screening more special as he knows Rani has given it her all to bring his story to life."

The actor will be seen as Naina Mathur who has Tourette Syndrome, which forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. Hichki focuses on turning disadvantages into opportunities and staring down at challenges that life throws at one and ultimately winning over them, according to the makers.

Produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, the film is set to be released on March 23.
