Interestingly, Hichki had earned Rs 100 crore in China within 13 days of its release. Titled Teacher with Hiccup, it opened there on October 12, with Rani Mukerji promoting the film extensively across major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Chengdu.
Directed by Siddharth Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma, Hichki released in India on March 23. It is the story of Naina—played earnestly by Rani—who suffers from Tourette Syndrome, a nervous-system disorder that causes her to react a certain way every time she gets anxious.
In Hichki, Rani’s struggle to provide equal education to underprivileged children in the face of many adversities, has found an immediate connect with the Chinese. However, it isn’t the first Indian film to conquer the Chinese box office. Before it, Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3, PK, Dangal and Secret Superstar, and Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan have also enjoyed stupendous success in China.
