2018 has been a great year for director Siddharth P Malhotra who made his comeback with Hickhi starring Rani Mukerjee.

With an unusual story about a protagonist suffering from Tourette syndrome Hichki was highly appreciated by the audience.

 

The director, however, clarifies that contrary to reports, there is no sequel to the film.

Siddharth says, “There are no plans for the sequel. So I am very clear she is doing Mardani 2 and I am doing a different film right now. It’s a human relationship-based film, and besides that, there is no Hichki 2.”

Having last directed We Are Family with Kajol, Siddharth is also close friends with her and hopes to cast both Rani and Kajol together in a film.

“I would love to collaborate with both Rani and Kajol — it will be fun. Kajol is one of my closest friends and Rani has become a very dear friend to me,” he enthuses.

Elaborating, he says, “Rani has an opinion over the film she chooses to do, but she is an asset to any director. Like people say about Aamir Khan, that he is an assistant director... he is an asset to any director, it’s a boon. It is the same with Rani; it’s a blessing to have her in your film.”

 

“She is the female version of Aamir Khan because she thinks about the film and not about herself. Be it good, bad or ugly, she will give it to you on your face,” he adds.
