‘Hichki’: Rani Mukerji launches song ‘Oye Hichki’ at her alma mater – Rani Mukerji went back to her alma mater Maneckji Cooper on Tuesday to launch the new song ‘Oye Hichki’ from her forthcoming release, Hichki.
A catchy song, which is also the first song that the makers have released, sees Rani call out the prevalent social Hichkis like preference for fair skin, looking down at people with disabilities, girls not having the right to choose their life partners, etc. Sung by Harshdeep Kaur and lyrics by Jaideep Sahni, the catchy Oye Hichki song is choreographed by none other than Vaibhavi Merchant.
This video highlights the different types of discriminations prevalent in our society today that exists in each and everyone of us. This song urges everyone to identify them and overcome them, one discrimination at a time.
In Hichki, Rani plays the character of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome that 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. It is also a subtle reminder about discrimination that exists in our society and has become a part of our daily lives.
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma, the movie is set to touch the hearts of audiences when it releases on March 23.
