Aishwarya Rai Has A Very Small Screen Space In Fanney Khan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was last seen in Ae Dil Mushkil (2016), will be seen as a pop sensation in Fanney Khan, while Anil Kapoor plays the lead role. 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 after seventeen years.

Apart from the heart-warming storyline of Fanney Khan, what people got hooked on was Aishwarya Rai and her ultra glam avatar in the trailer. The audience is going gaga over her glamorous avatar in the film and eager to watch what she will bring to the table through Fanney Khan as she's playing a rockstar.

Albeit the Diva who is seen quite a bit in the trailer, apparently has limited screen time. As per media reports, the actress would be there for around 15-20 minutes.

Aishwarya has a short but interesting role in the movie. She shot for around 12-13 days with Anil and Rajkummar Rao. Two songs — a dance number and a love track — have been filmed on her.

Like her previous movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, here too Aishwarya will be making a special appearance. According to a leading daily, the actress was drawn to the script since it dealt with fat shaming, a problem that she felt needed to be addressed.  

Fanney Khan helmed by Atul Manjrekar, is the official remake of the Oscar-nominated 2000 Dutch film 'Everybody's Famous', about a young teenage girl who is forced by her parents to become a singing star. The movie is slated to hit theatres on August 3. The mystery of the film’s poster can be explained by the Dutch film’s synopsis:

“When a family man suddenly loses his job, he is desperate to have his daughter succeed as a singer. In a chance meeting, he kidnaps the most famous pop star in the country and holds her hostage, demanding to be heard by the music industry.”

The first song from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao's musical comedy, Fanney Khan will release on July 11.

After feeding the audience with an emotional trailer, the makers of the movie that also stars Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the leads have teased the audience once again, this time with the first song from the movie titled Mohabbat.

Sharing a poster of Mohabbat, Rajkummar Rao teased a picture of Aishwarya with song title on his Twitter.

The song Mohabbat is supposed to be Aishwarya's introductory song in the movie, which has been choreographed by Frank Gatson Jr and it promises to match international concert standards.
