During an exclusive interview to Republic TV, when asked why she chose ‘Hichki’ as her comeback film, Rani had said, "For me ‘Hichki’ is a film that goes beyond just being a film because in an actor’s life, we rarely get such films where we are able to do something much more than entertainment. She went on to say that, "For me ‘Hichki’ is a film which is all about positivity, it is all about a positive message which is going out through the film. It’s an inspirational film and it has all the qualities that I look for when I watch a film. With entertainment, I am taking back something that is inspiring to me. As human beings, we are all special in our own ways and I think that is what ‘Hichki’ celebrates"
China has opened up to Indian movies significantly over the past years. Films that have aired in the country include 'Three Idiots', 'Dangal', 'PK' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
