Bollywood star Rani Mukerji will be promoting her acclaimed film 'Hichki' in China. The film, directed by Sidharth P Malhotra, will be releasing in the country on October 12.
The 40-year-old actor will promote the feature in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Chengdu.
China emerged as a huge market for Indian movies with films like 'Dangal' and 'Secret Superstar' doing great at the box-office.
What Rani says
'Hope Hichki's social message connects with China,' says Rani
"'Hichki', with its universal story, has connected with so many people across the world and we're hopeful that the inspiring social message will also connect with audiences in China. Our film is a reflection and a commentary on society at large," Rani said in a statement.
Given the performances of earlier features at the Chinese box office, Rani hopes her film will do well.
'Hichki' highlights how we all have deficiencies, weaknesses: Rani
"It ('Hichki') highlights how we all have deficiencies, weaknesses - either physical or in our personalities and in our thinking - and why we need to overcome them to make the world a better place for everyone," said Rani.
"Social dramas are appreciated by the audiences in China and I am hopeful that my film will resonate there," she said.
'Hichki' also taught us about Tourette Syndrome
The film, which released in India on March 23 this year, featured Rani as Naina Mathur, a school teacher dealing with an involuntary nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome. It is a neurological disorder that causes patients to have sudden, uncontrolled movements or sounds, repetitively.
