Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is coming back to the silver screen after two years with the multistarrer Fanney Khan, the official Bollywood remake of a Belgian film Everybody’s Famous. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Divya Dutta and introduces Pihu Sand. The story of the movie revolves around Lata (Pihu Sand), who wants to become a singing sensation and her father (Anil Kapoor) who leaves no stone unturned in helping her become one.
Aish plays a very famous pop-singer in the movie, who is later kidnapped by the characters of Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. With a very interesting script and the talented cast, the movie has been in the most awaited movie list of 2018 since its announcement, however, there were a lot of things that led to the delay in release. While Anil Kapoor was the full and final choice from the very beginning, Priyanka Chopra was the first choice to play Aish’s character and R. Madhavan was the first choice for Rajkummar Rao’s character. A lot of time was taken not only zeroing down on the cast but there was also a lot of to and fro in the shooting schedule.
The principal photography of the movie started in September 2017 with Anil Kapoor, Divya Dutta, and debutante Pihu Sand and they were joined by Rajkummar and Aishwarya in October. After a couple of days, the shoot had to stop because Aish wasn’t satisfied with the wardrobe. She agreed to shoot after Manish Malhotra was taken on board for her wardrobe. The shooting was supposed to resume in the last week of October but has to be postponed because of Rajkummar’s injury on the television show Lip Sing Battle. The shoot finally resumed in November 2017.
The songs of the movie have been composed by Amit Trivedi and Halka halka has already become a part of many playlists. Recently, a video of the making of this song was released and it has pumped up the excitement of the fans even more. But the wait is almost over because the release date is just around the corner.
