According to Mid-Day, the makers of Fanney Khan have finalised Madhavan as Aishwarya’s love interest in the movie. The two had last featured in a movie together 10 years back in Guru, which however did not portray them as love pair. However, there is still no official confirmation on the male lead of the film.
Aishwarya is said to romance to romance with Madhavan
The movie is going to be directed by Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra. Madhavan who is also known as Maddy which has played the role in many amazing movies like Rang De Basanti, 3 Idiots, Rahna Hai Tere Dil Me etc… has been roped in by the makers of FK to romance Ash in the film.
“Stop body shaming and be yourself – is the strong message that Fanney Khan wants to give out. Body shaming happens when someone overweight is humiliated by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size. Aishwarya has undergone that post her pregnancy after she gave birth to Aaradhya and it’s something she feels strongly about,” a close source quoted to Pinkvilla.
Akshay Oberoi and Rajkummar Rao were also reportedly being considered for the role but Maddy seems to have had the upper hand.
Akshay had faced much condemnation on social media due to the rumour. However, the actor had later denied the rumours and cleared the air with a tweet saying, “You really think anyone in their right mind would refuse to work with THE Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? Don’t believe everything you read”.
Fanney Khan is the Hindi adaptation of the 2000 Dutch release, Everybody’s Famous! However, the makers have given their own twist to the plot. The film is set to go on floors this August.
