After her faboulous performance in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, all eyes are set on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s next Bollywood venture – Fanney Khan. The film has been in news ever since the makers got Aishwarya and her Taal co-actor Anil Kapoor on board for the film.
There were several rumours that Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao are both approached for Fanney Khan to romance Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the film. And now, it is stated that the talented and handsome actor R. Madhavan has been approached to be paired opposite Aishwarya in the film. It was already revealed that Anil and she are not romantically paired opposite each other. If Maddy comes onboard they will come together after a decade. The last time they came together was in Guru (2007) though they were not paired romantically opposite each other.
According to a report in Mid-Day, R Madhavan is likely to romance Aishwarya in Fanney Khan. This is not the first time that Aishwarya will work with Madhavan. They were last seen together in Mani Ratnam’s Guru.
Later there were several reports of makers considering Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal, etc for the role. One among them was Vivek Oberoi’s cousin Akshay Oberoi. According to a report by DNA After Hrs, Laal Rang and Gurgaon fame actor, Akshay Oberoi was approached for the role to star opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan but he turned it down. A source informed the daily, “Akshay Oberoi was approached for the film. Talks were initiated with the actor but it didn’t work out eventually. Now, they are still hunting for a young actor.”
Film’s co-producer Prerna Arora in an earlier interview to Mumbai Mirror had spilled the beans on Aishwarya’s role in the film. “Her character is the complete opposite of her serious turns in Jazbaa and Sarbjit. In our film she is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist,” she said.
Fanney Khan is the Hindi adaptation of the 2000 Dutch release, Everybody’s Famous! However, the makers have given their own twist to the plot. The film is set to go on floors this August.
