Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor are all set to reunite on the screens after 18 long years for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next production, Fanney Khan. However, we had earlier reported that Aishwarya and Anil will not be romancing on-screen. Last year Ash and Ranbir Kapoor made a lot of headlines with their steamy scenes and chemistry in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. And looks like history is all set to repeat itself. If rumours are to be believed then Aishwarya will be romancing a younger actor once again in Fanney Khan.
According to a report by a leading entertainment portal, Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao are the two front-runners in the race for the lead role. A close source to them says, “Either Rao or Kaushal should bag the role. But you never know as neither of them has yet signed on the dotted line.”
However official announcements are yet to be made.
Fanney Khan is a musical-drama and will showcase the lead actors in very distinct avatars. Anil Kapoor will be seen playing the titular character of a father to a struggling singer. While Aishwarya will be seen in the avatar of a charismatic singer who will win hearts with her positivity and freshness.
Aishwarya will begin the shooting in August this year and the film will hit screens next year in April.
