Bengali legends Rani Mukerji and Sourav Ganguly are set to come together on a reality TV show!
They are both icons. They are the pride of Bengal. Rani Mukerji and Sourav Ganguly will come together on television for Sourav’s hugely successful Bengali reality TV show Dadagiri. Rani will be heading to Kolkata to shoot this special episode that focusses on Rani’s forthcoming film Hichki.
A source from the channel says, “Rani and Sourav are both legends. This episode will be the most special one that we have shot ever. They will make for a winning combination on TV. Sourav, or Dada as he is fondly called, will be speaking to Rani on her forthcoming film Hichki. Rani has started a campaign for the film that sees her quiz icons about their real-life hichkis (weaknesses) and she will quiz Sourav on the same. It will be quite interesting to know about dada’s hichki. We are sure it will be a big revelation.”
Rani plays the character of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. Hichki focusses on turning disadvantages into opportunities and staring down at challenges that life throws at one and ultimately winning over them. It is also a subtle reminder about discrimination that exists in our society and has become a part of our daily lives. It highlights this through the story of Naina, who faces discrimination from our society that firmly believes she cannot be a teacher because of her disorder.
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma, the movie is set to touch the hearts of audiences when it releases on February 23.
