This year belongs to no one but Rajkumar Rao. With five films this year, this actor has just ruled over everyone. And now he is all fit for his next. Very recently, Rao was injured on Farah Khan’s show, Lip Sing Battle and had fractured his foot, but seems like he is ready to start work on his next with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor, Fanney Khan.
Says a trade source, “The last talkie portions between Aishwarya, Anil and Rajkummar will be shot a factory in Bhandup. It’s their remaining combination scenes and will be shot over three days, either from December 5-7 or 6-8 depending on the artists’ dates. Aishwarya’s songs will be shot after that in January 2018. Rajkummar broke his ankle in October while shooting for Farah Khan’s Lip Sing Battle and his combination scenes with Anil and Aishwarya had to be postponed by more than a month. Anil and Aishwarya’s dates went for a toss and some dates got wasted but they had no choice. Now those scenes will be shot from next week.”
The source informs that Anil was in Germany for his knee treatment last week but will be back before his shoot. “First Anil will shoot with Aishwarya and then it will be Rajkummar and Aishwariya, so this will be his first shot post his ankle fracture. Aishwarya also shot last week for her solo portions. She is a thorough professional. Even after she finished her shot, though her co-actor was still shooting, out of courtesy, she waited till pack-up was announced and only then left.”
Talking about the scenes that will be shot with Rajkummar, the source explains, “Rajkummar plays her ardent admirer in the film. While we have seen in earlier on-the-set photographs (in the media) where Anil kidnaps her and keeps her in an abandoned factory, this shoot is an extension of the kidnapping. Rajkummar is Anil’s friend and colleague who helps Anil in kidnapping Ash, but later as he starts to interact with her and comes to know the person she is, he slowly starts getting attracted to her. It’s not a full-blown romance or anything that will be shown but a slow and intense attraction and are some of the most beautiful scenes of the movie.”
The film is an official remake of the Oscar-nominated Belgian 2000 film Everybody’s Famous and is scheduled for a worldwide release on 15 June 2018.
