Ageless beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been signing interesting projects and her next project Fanney Khan kick started recently. The lead actor to romance Aish was not yet finalized despite of several attempts by the makers.
Tamil actor R Madhavan has been approached for the role and he demanded a remuneration of Rs 1.5 crores for just ten days which did not go well with the makers. The makers decided to search for an alternative for Madhavan for the role.
Madhavan was not in a mood to cut down his remuneration despite of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s request who is producing the movie. The duo worked together for Rang De Basanti in the past. With nothing much to do the makers locked young actor Rajkumar Rao for the role.
Fanney Khan is said to be a musical comedy which is directed by Atul Manjrekar. Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Mehwish Hayat, Rajkumar Rao and Divya Dutta will play the lead roles.
