After almost seventeen years Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor will reunite on screen . The duo has worked together in Subhash Ghai’s Taal and was also seen opposite each other in Satish Kaushik’s Humara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. However, it looks like Aishwarya Rai will not be romancing Anil Kapoor in Atul Manjrekar’s directorial venture. When we caught up with the Mubarakan actor recently, he spilled some beans about the upcoming his project with Aishwarya. Anil Kapoor revealed, “Most exciting part is she (Aishwarya) is not opposite me. So that makes it different. Not that she was opposite me in Taal she was opposite Akshaye Khanna. But there was a certain undercurrent of romance in Taal and Hamara Dil AApke Paas Hai she was my wife.” The actor further went on and said, “So we both are strangers in the film, strangers who come together but there is no romance which makes it exciting. That is the different part of our casting.”
That’s not all, Anil Kapoor is all praises for Aishwarya. When we quizzed the actor on how was it working with the light-eyed beauty he said, “Aishwarya and I got along very well. I got along very well with her mother also. We shared a great bond. And both usually what happens is you share a bond with the mother and not with the daughter, but here I shared a bond with both of them and we still share it. And obviously she is very intelligent and sharp and she speaks very well. She is the most beautiful girl, who can be more beautiful than Aishwarya Rai? You cannot take your eyes off her. And she is a great dancer. Her dancing in Taal was fantastic. There were certain scenes we did in Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai, which were very dramatic and very convincing and both films have been very successful and they have a recall value. Sometimes you do films and people forget about it. But both these films there are certain things which people still remember, be it the music.”
Anil Kapoor hopes that despite no romantic track with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Fanney Khan their jodi spells success at the box office, he finally concluded and said, “Hopefully Fanney Khan can be something that we hit a hattrick!”
Fanney Khan is all set to go on floors by the end of August and the makers plan to release the film by April 2018. This film will also feature Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat. Watch this space for more exclusive news and goss from Bollywood.
