Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to romance R Madhavan in ‘Fanney Khan’


The makers of ‘Fanney Khan’ have finally got a guy to romance Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in ‘Fanney Khan’. According to the latest report, R Madhavan has been roped in to play Aishwarya’s love interest in ‘Fanney Khan’.

The two actors worked together in 2007 film, ‘Guru’ however they were not paired opposite each other.

Earlier, Vivek Oberoi's cousin Akshay Oberoi turned down the offer to pair opposite Aishwarya due to the actress’s relationship with Vivek Oberoi.

However, Akshay Oberoi later clarified and squashes off the rumor of backing out of the film, he said, "Who in their right mind would ever decline a Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan film? It would have been my honour to work with Aishwarya and Rakeysh sir. Yes, I had auditioned for the film and even got shortlisted but unfortunately, I wasn't the one who was finalised for the role and these things happen. I would have loved to be the one to receive that final call from the producers but maybe next time".

‘Fanney Khan’ helmed by Atul Manjrekar will also bring together Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor on big screen after a gap of 17 years. They were last worked together in Satish Kaushik’s 'Humara Dil Aapke Pass Hai' in 2000.

'Fanney Khan' adapted from Dominique Deruddere’s Dutch film ‘Everybody’s Famous’ is expected to release in April 2018.
