The movie ‘Hichki’ showcases the discrimination existed deeply in the society and prevails in our day-to-day lives. It displays the story of Naina, played by Rani who is suffering from Tourette syndrome, that makes a person to do involuntary repetitive movements or sounds.
Naina has to face discrimination from the society repeatedly but she reverts back with positive attitude and constant determination thus emerging as a good teacher instead. The movie was produced by Maneesh Sharma and released on March 23.
