A couple of months ago, SpotboyE.com had exclusively told
you that Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal are in the running to romance
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and KriArj Entertainment's (Prerna Arora and Arjun
N. Kapoor) next production, Fanney Khan.
Now, it’s official that it is Rajkummar who has beaten Vicky to bag the role. Speaking to a leading daily from Poland where he is filming Hansal Mehta’s biographical series, Bose, the actor confessed that he’d been informed that he has landed the role late on Tuesday by producer Prernaa Arora, KriArj Entertainment, who he has been wanting to collaborate with. “We’re friends and have been discussing films for a while,” he revealed.
The actor went on to reveal that he met Ash for the first
time at the recent Melbourne International Film Festival where he picked the
Best Actor Award for Trapped. “She’s the most beautiful woman in the world.
It’s a great story, there’s a lot of love, and the content is not just
entertaining but is detailed and different. There will be lots of workshops and
readings once I am back,” he said.
Fanney Khan is the Hindi adaptation of the 2000 Dutch release Everybody's Famous directed by Dominique Deruddere, which was also nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 73rd Academy Awards.

Fanney Khan also marks Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor’s collaboration after 17 years. The two last shared screen space in Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai.
