Following to a hot portrayal in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil as Maya, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen in yet another glamorous role of a pop star in her upcoming movie named Fannney Khan. Trailer of the movie has released already. Character of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been revealed through the trailer also. Vibe of a rockstar is clear from her act. In the titular role, Anil Kapoor can be seen whereas love interest of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be played by Rajkummar Rao.
Similar to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, screen time of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is expected to be limited here also. According one our reliable sources, “Aishwarya has a short but interesting role in the movie. She’s barely in it for around 15-20 minutes, so it’s a special appearance. She shot for around 12-13 days with Anil and Rajkummar Rao. Two songs — a dance number and a love track — have been filmed on her.”
Theme of fat shaming will be dealt with this movie which is also a reason why Aishwarya has agreed to do this movie in spite a relatively small role. Aishwarya believes that fat shaming must be addressed in proper manner.
Speaking about Fanney Khan in the media, Aishwarya has said earlier “I’m doing Fanney Khan because I like the larger idea. There’s a girl who looks up to this pop star, who is played by me. But sometimes, when we idolise someone, we forget that they, too, are real people. We shouldn’t judge them for their appearance. It’s frivolous. It’s important for me to come out and speak about such issues. ”
Fanney Khan directed by Atul Manjekar will hit the screen on 3rd August, 2018.
