On Monday, news agency IANS reported that Rani is organising a screening in the US for Brad Cohen. Rani's character Naina Mathur is inspired by Mr Cohen's story. "Brad Cohen'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 authentic portrayal of her character. Rani wants Brad and his students to watch the film and she will be organising a special screening for him and his students," director Siddharth P Malhotra said in a statement, IANS reported.
Hichki is Rani Mukerji's first film in four years. She was last seen in 2014's Mardaani. Rani is married to Aditya Chopra, who heads Yash Raj Films.
