Actress Rani Mukerji is all set for the release of her film Hichki in China and she is currently busy with the film's promotional duties. We got a glimpse of Rani's China diaries through Yash Raj Films' official Instagram account. On Tuesday, YRF shared a picture, in which Rani can be seen posing in front of the Great Wall Of China. The post was captioned: "Whattay sight." Hichki is slated to release in China on October 12. Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Hichki, showcases the story of a determined teacher named Naina Mathur (played by Rani Mukerji), who suffers from Tourette syndrome. The film also touches upon the theme of educational equality through Right To Education.

Hichki is an adaptation of Brad Cohen's autobiography Front Of The Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me The Teacher I Never Had. The film also stars Supriya Pilgaonkar, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Harsh Mayar, Shivkumar Subramaniam, Neeraj Kabi and it marked the Bollywood comeback of Rani Mukerji on silver screen. Rani was last seen in the 204 film Mardaani.
Over the last few years, China has emerged as a huge market for Bollywood films. Other than Hichki, films such as PadMan, Hindi Medium, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Secret Superstar and Bajrani Bhaijaan among others premiered in China and performed exceptionally well.
