Rani Mukerji starrer ‘Hichki’ (2018) has released in China and is getting good numbers. Mukerji was on a promotional tour in the country which she thoroughly enjoyed. She says that she discovered the true popularity of Indian films when she was travelling in China, and adds that interacting with the Chinese audience made it more inspiring for her.
As according to Indian Express, Mukerji said, “They understood each and every emotion of the film. They knew about the film, they had seen the film so there was a lot of positivity everywhere I went. It was surprising because I knew that Indian films are popular but to what degree, I found it when I went there. Interacting with the audiences and Chinese people has made the entire travel so much more inspiring for me. It was just amazing and surprising at the same time because the kind of love they have for an Indian actor and the kind of respect they give you is phenomenal. Our cultures and our way of life is very similar. Indians and Chinese are very similar in terms of family life and in the way they live. So a lot of things are common and I guess that’s what really connects our stories to them because it feels very close to home.”
‘Hichki’ was directed by Siddharth P. Malhotra.
