Initially, he wanted to project “Hichki” as a male-centric film, but Maneesh Sharma (creative director of the movie) suggested him to take make it with a female protagonist and that’s how Rani Mukerji came on board. He quoted in an interview that, “During the first narration, Rani laughed, cried and finally agreed to do the film which resonated with her because she is an instinctive and emotional person. Only if the film connects with her she will do it because her daughter, Adira is her top priority and she would never waste a moment if she doesn’t like something.
