Director Siddharth Malhotra, whose film Hichki received a standing ovation at the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), says it was an honour.

Malhotra on Monday shared a few images of the film’s screening on social media, and captioned it: “What an honour and an overwhelming feeling when your work gets a standing ovation from a foreign audience who simply watches a film with subtitles and gets moved to tears/laughter.

“Thank you Shanghai SIFF 2018 at the festival for this experience, from the entire team of Hichki.

Hichki, starring Rani Mukerji as a woman who deals with Tourette syndrome and goes on to become a teacher, was screened as part of The Belt and Road Week at the film festival on June 16.
