Director Siddharth Malhotra, whose film Hichki (2018) received a standing ovation at the Shanghai International Film Festival, says it was an honour.

Malhotra on Monday (18 June) shared a few images of the film's screening over social media, and captioned it: "What an honour and an overwhelming feeling when your work gets a standing ovation from a foreign audience who simply watches a film with subtitles and gets moved to tears/laughter. Thank you Shanghai SIFF 2018 at the festival for this experience, from the entire team of Hichki."

Hichki stars Rani Mukerji as a woman who deals with Tourette syndrome but goes on to become a teacher. The film was screened as part of The Belt and Road Week at the film festival on 16 June.
