Hichki focuses on a determined teacher dealing with Tourette syndrome.

"I am also thrilled and touched at the love and applause Hichki has brought us. Rani and the kids take most of the credit for its victory on-screen, and I think Hichki will take her to a whole new global audience," Malhotra added.

The film will be screened on 16 June as part of the festival's opening day. Malhotra will interact with members of the audience after the screening.
