Aishwarya Rai Bachchan To Star In Fanney Khan
Few days ago, Prerna Arora spoke to the media about Aishwarya’s role and the film’s schedule. She said, "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. 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."
Prerna further said that Aishwarya’s role will be much different what she has done after her comeback. “Her character is the complete opposite of her serious turns in Jazbaa and Sarbjit. In our film she is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist." concluded the producer.
