Mumbai, June 5: After receiving rave reviews from critics and performing decently at the box office, Rani Mukerji’s latest venture ‘Hichki’ has been selected for a screening at the Shanghai International Film Festival in China.
The screening will be held on the opening day of the festival, i.e. June 16, and will be a part of the Belt and Road Film Week of the festival.
