Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s upcoming film Fanne Khan seems to be garnering a lot of hype since its still was leaked a while back on social media.
Reports are adrift that the actress will not only play a singer in the film but will also pay tribute to the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.
“She plays a popular singer in the film and a fan of Lata. You can’t escape Lata’s influence if you’re playing a singer.”
“Apart from a few original tracks, Aishwarya will also recreate a few of Lata’s numbers. That isn’t the film’s only connection with Lata. Anil Kapoor’s daughter, who plays an aspiring singer, is named Lata,” added the source.
In one of the interviews, when Lata Mangeshkar was asked what she felt about Aishwarya considering her a role model in the film, she said, “It is good to hear that she is fond of my singing. I think I sang for her for the first time in Mohabbatein. The song Humko Humhi Se Chura Lo was a hit. It’s a beautiful melody and Aishwarya looked lovely lip-syncing it.”
Fanne Khan will see the on-screen reunion of Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor. Along with them, the cast also includes Rajkummar Rao who will play Aishwarya’s love interest and Divya Dutta who plays Anil’s wife.
The plot supposedly revolves around an aspiring singer, played by Anil Kapoor, his relationship with his daughter and how their lives change when Aishwarya Rai comes into their lives. It will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and also stars Rajkumar Rao.
Fanney Khan is slated to release on 13 April 2018.
