Revealed: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s screen time in ‘Fanney Khan’
However, the actress who plays a pop icon in ‘Fanney Khan’ is not going to have a full-fledged role in this film. Aishwarya has a special appearance in the film with her screen-time spanning around 20 minutes. A source close to the project told DNA, “Aishwarya has a short but interesting role in the movie. She’s barely in it for around 15-20 minutes, so it’s a special appearance. She shot for around 12-13 days with Anil and Rajkummar Rao. Two songs — a dance number and a love track — have been filmed on her.”
Citing the reason, why Aishwarya agreed to take up this special appearance role, the source further added, “When Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and director Atul Manjrekar narrated the script to her, she was drawn to it because of the theme of fat shaming, which she feels, needs to be addressed.”
The actress has previously shared with the same newspaper about what makes the project exciting enough for her to give it a green signal. She had said, “I’m doing ‘Fanney Khan’ because I like the larger idea. There’s a girl who looks up to this pop star, who is played by me. But sometimes, when we idolise someone, we forget that they, too, are real people. We shouldn’t judge them for their appearance. It’s frivolous. It’s important for me to come out and speak about such issues.”
Well, we totally agree with Aishwarya’s views and even though its a special appearance we are eagerly looking forward to the release of the film. What about you guys?
