The preparation for the movie begins by mid-July and the film will go on floors in August. Anil Kapoor plays the role of a singer and will be taking the mic to record a few songs in his voice. While the makers want this to be revealed in the film, we hear that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will also croon along with Anil Kapoor.
Anil Kapoor Smiling For The Media
Prerna Arora, co-producer of the movie, addressed a section of media and revealed a few details about Aishwarya’s role and the film’s schedule. She said, "The team starts building the set in Mumbai next month and Anil will kick off shooting in the first week of August. Aishwarya joins him by the month-end and the film will wrap up in a start-to-finish schedule by October. Ash was blown away by her glamorous and “highly stylised” character. We took the script to her two months ago and she immediately gave her nod."
Prerna further said that Aishwarya’s role will be much different what she has done after her comeback. “Her character is the complete opposite of her serious turns in Jazbaa and Sarbjit. In our film she is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist." concluded the producer.
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.
Fanny Khan will be directed by debutant Atul Manjrekar. The film is based on the story of a 17-year-old aspiring singer whose career takes off after her unemployed father, who also harbours the dreams of becoming a musician, decides to kidnap the top singer of the country.
