After dazzling the audience with her enticing performance in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, gorgeous actress and former beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to grace the silver screen with her forthcoming film Fanney Khan. To be directed by award-winning filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the movie is all set to mount floors soon.
Earlier, there were reports that actors Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal were being considered to play the male lead opposite Aish, but if the latest buzz is anything to go by, the makers have gone for an unexpected pick for the role. Reportedly, R Madhavan, who has previously worked with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra on Rang De Basanti, has bagged the plum part.
R Madhavan was last seen in the film Saala Khadoos. Since then the actor has not appeared in any Bollywood project. With the news of him joining forces with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, we are sure his fandom will be really excited.
However, it is not going to be the first time when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and R Madhavan will share the screen space. They have previously appeared together in Mani Ratnam’s critically acclaimed film Guru, which also starred Abhishek Bachchan. However, both of them were not romantically paired in the movie.
Besides Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and R Madhavan, veteran actor Anil Kapoor is also a part of the Fanney Khan.
