The sequence of idols being immersed in water is an overused metaphor in Hindi cinema. However, how often have we see an idol being lifted out of water and cleansed to ensure water isn’t polluted? That is the kind of work Rani Mukerji is aiming at with her latest song, Oye Hichki from her upcoming film Hichki.

The song was launched at Rani’s alma mater, Maneckji Cooper.

Oye Hichki is the first song from Rani’s Hichki; the video shows Rani taking on prejudices against matters like skin colour, people with disabilities, girls not having the right to choose their life partners, among others.

Rani essays the role of Naina Mathur who has a nervous system disorder, Tourette Syndrome, that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds. Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, the film focuses on turning disadvantages into opportunities and facing challenges that life throws up, ultimately overcoming them.

Harshdeep Kaur has crooned the song that is penned down by Jaideep Sahni and Vaibhavi Merchant has choreographed.

Produced by Maneesh Sharma, the movie is set to release on March 23.
