MUMBAI (Web Desk): Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been signed opposite to legendary Anil Kapoor in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next film “Fanney Khan”.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan stole the limelight at the red carpet of the recently concluded 70th Cannes Film Festival with a blue Michael Cinco voluminous gown on the first day. The former beauty queen last appeared in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. Though it was a cameo, Aishwarya won hearts with her performance in the film.
In an interview, Aishwarya revealed,
“No, I took a break for the past five months because of personal reasons. I’m glad I did. It meant a lot for me, personally, so I didn’t have any professional meetings. I started last week and I have liked two subjects already. So, as and when, we feel the need or when the time is right, we will share the news with you.”
Aish and Anil have also performed in 1999 and 2000 hit movies Taal and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. The two appeared together in Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai in 2000. Directed by debutant Atul Manjrekar, the film is being co-produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Arjun N. Kapoor and Prernaa Arora.
Fanney Khan is said to be a comedy musical and will see the two actors reuniting after 17 years.
