Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play a glamorous singer in Fanney Khan

Kriarj Entertainment and T-Series upcoming film ‘Fanney Khan’ has been grabbing all the attention from everyone ever since its announcement.  Prernaa Arora, the producer of the film has denied the presence of Priyanka Chopra, as the rumours suggested. She has also confirmed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is more suited for the role and she was the only choice ever since their production has come on board.
With a powerful star cast of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor in the lead, ‘Fanney Khan’ is the directorial debut of Atul Manjrekar and is the Hindi adaptation of the 2000 Dutch release, Everybody’s Famous.
The film is musical-drama which showcases the lead actors in a very distinct avatar.  The evergreen beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen as a glamorous singer. So the actress who recently portrayed an Urdu poetess will soon reprise playing a singer, which will be another first.
The actress, who is currently on a family vacation in New York, is known to be starting with her preparation for the role as soon as she is back in city.
Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment says: “Aishwarya is a stunning and an extremely talented actress. In Fanney Khan, she will be seen completely different avatar from all our recent past films.  She is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist who will make you smile with her screen presence.”
There has been a buzz on how Aishwarya would be singing in the movie, but Prernaa has refused to confirm it. She says: “For now she is not singing, but yes she is playing a singer in the film but in reality, we still have to wait for that big moment when she decides to sing.”
Interestingly, Faaney Khan’s lead actor Anil Kapoor is known to be singing not one or two but multiple songs for the musical-drama. The team starts building the set in Mumbai next month and Anil will kick off shooting in the first week of August. Aishwarya joins him by the month-end and the film will wrap up in a start-to-finish schedule by October.
