Rani Mukerji’s internationally acclaimed blockbuster ‘Hichki’ has been winning hearts worldwide. ‘Hichki’ has grossed over Rs 250 crore worldwide. It has also been winning top awards at several international film festivals. Now, ‘Hichki’ has won big at the 49th Edition of Giffoni Film Festival in Italy and bagged the Gryphon Award for the Best Film.

Giffoni has a special segment called Elements +10 where jurors range between the ages of 10 to 12. The jurors who voted for the films in the Elements +10 category were over 1500 children. With seven feature films competing here from diverse nations like China, Germany, Sweden, Australia and the Netherlands, ‘Hichki’ won the top honour in this section. This recognition is a testament to the universal connect and emotional bond that Rani Mukerji’s ‘Hichki’ has built with audiences from all over the world.

The heart-warming and inspiring film had a progressive message of beating stereotypes and featured Rani Mukerji as a determined school teacher with her own nervous system disorder – Tourette Syndrome.

On the film winning such a prestigious award, producer Maneesh Sharma said, “‘Hichki’ is truly a universal film that has resonated with audiences across the world. The fact that children have voted ‘Hichki’ as the Best Film of the festival just goes to show that the film’s story of overcoming odds and finding your own success is relevant to cinema lovers even in this age group. We at YRF are absolutely thrilled that kids have celebrated the message of ‘Hichki’ in Italy.
