NEWS: Fanney Khan is a light hearted musical comedy


After playing the sensuous poet Saba in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s next is a light-hearted musical comedy titled Fanney Khan.

“Aishwarya is onboard. She was our first and only choice. I can’t reveal the plot of the film, but it’s more like a slice of life,” says the producer Prerna Arora of KriArj Entertainment.

“The youth will connect with the movie, and her character will inspire them. We promise you’ve never seen Ash in a role like this before. It’s diametrically opposite from her earlier films like Jazbaa and Sarbjit. In Fanney Khan she is a bundle of happiness and positive energy,” she adds.

Prerna mentions that actor Anil Kapoor is also a part of this film. “Yes, Anil is onboard, too but they aren’t cast opposite each other. She is the lead protagonist.”

Produced by Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, Fanney Khan will be directed by newcomer Atul Manjrekar.

    Hope we get to see Aishwarya fully dance in the movie, as we haven’t seen her do that in a movie for a long time.

    Aishwarya will be doing 4 movies Mani, SLB, Fanny khan and one with chiranjivi……! :-)

    Yeah seems like Mani and FK are basically confirmed. Just waiting to hear from Ash. Waiting to hear about some South work too. At 40 something Ash is once again breaking new ground

  4. ash says:

    The filmmakers have confirmed that Fanney Khan will be shot from August – September this year.

    I guess Aishwarya will start shooting for this movie after she returns from her summer vacation.

  5. ash says:

    Maybe Aishwarya will start shooting for Mani Ratnams next from October onwards.

  6. Michelle says:

    Mani’s film still seems up in the air. Not getting my hopes up until we get confirmation
