SRK makes Aanand L. Rai smile

'Hichki' to be screened at IFFM
Actress Rani Mukerji starrer Hichki will be screened at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) to propagate theme of inclusion.
Indian cinema will be celebrated under the theme of inclusion, with an array of films set to be screened from 10-22 August. Hichki will be screened on 11 August.
Directed by Siddharth Malhotra, the film tells the story of a woman who deals with Tourette syndrome but goes on to become a teacher.
"Hichki comes at a time when we really need an uplifting story, which makes us believe that nothing is impossible and everything is achievable if we believe in ourselves and our goals. This year the festival is celebrating the core of the theme of inclusion and it’s great to know that our film will be screened in liaison with this thought," Malhotra said in a statement.
He says that "it is not only about inclusion, in so many ways that it naturally is due to Tourette's and the difference between the haves and have-nots but it is also about accepting and understanding your own Tourette's which are within all of us and befriending it so that a right attitude towards life and all makes one happy."

When I was assisting on Tubelight, we were travelling across Himachal. But shooting in Mandi would be something that would be very special to me," Aayush said in a statement.
The actor says he would love to have the screening of his maiden film Loveratri in Mandi.
"Even for my upcoming film Loveratri, I would like to have a special screening there since watching it with all my people from Mandi would be very special," he added.

Harshvardhan Rane's Ryan Gosling connect

On this, Harshvardhan said in a statement, "I really do not know how to react about the comparison it makes me smile though, but to be honest there might be just a tiny bit similarity when it comes to the profession of my character in this film and his character in Drive."
The actor, who is eagerly awaiting the release of Paltan, has earlier been a part of two Telugu blockbusters Fida and Geethanjali.
