Aishwarya Rai and Anil Kapoor starts shooting for ‘Fanney Khan’

Anil-Kapoor-Aishwarya-Rai-Bachchan-Fanney Khan

Mumbai, Sep 3: Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are finally sharing the screen space after 17 years with Fanney Khan. The shooting of Fanney Khan, a musical comedy, kicked off this morning.

Anil on Sunday shared the photograph of the film’s clapboard on Twitter and said that the shoot has commenced.

“And here’s the clap that marks the beginning of something new and very very special! First days the best days! ‘Fanney Khan’. Shoot begins,” he captioned the image.

A first look into the film — as shared by Anil — earlier this year saw him dressed in a blingy golden jacket singing his heart out as a spotlight shone on him.

An official remake of the Oscar nominated Dutch film “Everybody’s Famous”, “Fanney Khan” will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and will star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao.

In the film, both Anil and Aishwarya will be seen playing the role of singers. The co-producer of the movie, Prernaa Arora revealed to a tabloid, “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.”
When quizzed about Aishwarya’s role, Prerna reveals, “Ash was blown away by her glamorous and “highly stylised” character. We took the script to her two months ago and she immediately gave her nod.”

The film will bring Aishwarya and Anil together on the big screen after almost two decades. They had previously shared screen space in the 2000 film “Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai” and the 1999 hit musical “Taal”.

Earlier, it was reported that R. Madhavan may be cast opposite Aishwarya, and subsequently it sparked talks that the actress was upset over it as she was keen on Rajkummar instead.
