Ever since the announcement of Atul Manjrekar's 'Fanney Khan', fans were exhilarated about seeing the 'Taal' pair, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor reuniting on screen post seventeen years.

Though, it was recently reported the duo won't be seen romancing each other. Hence, the makers were searching for Aishwarya's love interest in the movie.

Dismissing the earlier reports about Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao being considered for the role, latest buzz suggests that the '3 Idiots' actor might win the race.

Latest reports suggest that R Madhavan has been roped in by 'Fanney Khan' makers to portray the role of Aishwariya's lover in the film.

Apparently, it would not be the first time for Aishwarya to share the screen with Madhavan. They have worked together in Mani Ratnam's Guru.

While talking about Aishwarya's role in the film, film's co-producer, Prerna Arora said, "Her character is the complete opposite of her serious turns in Jazbaa and Sarabjit. In our film, she is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist."

A close source suggested 'Body shaming' as an important part of the film. "Stop body shaming and be yourself – is the strong message that Fanney Khan wants to give out," said the source.

The film is the Hindi adaptation of Dominique Deruddere's 2000 Dutch film, 'Everybody's Famous' with a little plot twist. It is all ready to go on floors in September and expected to be released in April next year.
