By BollywoodMDB Team - March 10, 2018
Last seen in Karan Johar’s directorial, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, beauty queen, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is coming back in films almost after two years. Aish will be next seen in Fanne Khan, a musical comedy-drama, where she will reunite with Anil Kapoor for the third time and it will be her first ever collaboration with Rajkummar Rao. She plays the role of a glamorous singer in the film that deals with the issue of body-shaming.
“I am a chapter in the film, not the fulcrum. There are other talents in the story and you will see why I chose to do the film once it releases. I am working with Anil for the third time and though I want to call him Anilji, he insists I call him Anil. He is such a dedicated and ever-charged artiste,” said Aishwarya about her role in Fanne Khan in an interview with a leading daily.
About her role in the film, a source had earlier told a leading daily, “She now has a far more important role than the actress who played her part in the original film. It was always one of the pivotal characters. But now she has been given far more importance in the script than what the original actress got. Aishwarya plays a singer and has four songs which she will sing herself for the first time.”
Jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Arjun N.Kapoor and Prernaa Arora’s KriArj Entertainment, Fanne Khan is helmed by Atul Manjrekar. It is scheduled to release on 13th July 2018.
