This time the diva will be seen in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Fanney Khan. From a quirky title to Aishwarya’s first look to Rajkummar Rao’s injury to Anil Kapoor’s salt-and-pepper look, the musical has been in news for the longest time.
But the box-office clash between Aishwarya’s Fanney Khan and Salman Khan’s Race 3 on Eid 2018 has spread like wildfire.

So before Fanney Khan hit the screens, here are five things that we already know about the musical.

Based on a Dutch film Everybody’s Famous!
Mehra’s next has its inspiration from a Dutch film, Everybody’s Famous! The film revolves around a father who dreams of his teenager daughter becoming a singer, but somewhere her weight acts a hindrance. Desperate for her daughter to get some attention from music industry, he holds a famous singer hostage.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan turns singer
Aishwarya is all set to break from her current on-screen image in Mehra’s Fanney Khan. While her last few releases (Jazbaa and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) saw her in serious roles, Fanney Khan will see Aishwarya play a glamorous singer . Prerna Arora, who is co-producing the film with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, told Mumbai Mirror, “Everyone will be surprised by Ash’s turn. Her character is the complete opposite of her serious turns in Jazbaa and Sarbjit. In our film, she is the spunky, enchanting female protagonist.”
Aishwarya to romance Rajkummar Rao

This time, Aishwarya will share screen space with Rajkummar Rao in the musical.
Theme of body shaming
Fanney Khan is not just a musical, but a film with a strong message. Confirming the news, producer Prerna said, “The film is not just about cool music. Aishwarya ma’am, who is the epitome of beauty and a role model, is going to make youngsters aware about body shaming. Through her character, she will deliver the powerful social message that body shaming is unacceptable.”
