Rani Mukerji Now Wants To Teach But Is Struggling
Posted On 19th December, 2017 @ 16:13 pm by Mihika Jindal



We all expect our teachers to be perfect. Because we’ve been taught to idolise them from head to the toe. And this cynicism leads us to some far-fetched expectations where the students, the authorities and the system at large refuse to accept any sort of anomalies.


Rani Mukerji’s character in her comeback film Hichki, is of a teacher who is suffering from Tourette syndrome—“jab hamare brain mein kayeen saare taar ek saath nahi judte toh kabhi kabhi shock dete hain”—explains Mukerji in the trailer that was launched today. She believes she’s born to be a teacher except all she gets is rejection from everywhere because of this neurological disorder. But because she’s not ready to back out, she finally lands a teaching job with St. Notker’s High School, an elite school that has a classroom of underprivileged kids “thanks to the right to education” who no one wants to teach.


And then starts a journey of a teacher and a bunch of students, both rejected by the society, to hopefully create a successful story.


Directed by husband Aditya Chopra, it seems like Mukerji took her own sweet time to wait for a script that is worth her acting skills. And it’s great to see that Bollywood is still willing to expand the horizon to explore new subject areas like Tourette syndrome.


The film will hit the theatres on 23 February. Watch the trailer here.
