Rani stated, “Good cinema has no language barriers and it connects with the the audience’s hearts and minds. Hichki’s success in China proves just that.”
“We knew we had made a special film but for it to get so much love and acclaim from audiences across the globe is an extremely proud and humbling moment for all of us,” she added.
