A source close to Bachchan family told Deccan Chronicle, “Aishwarya felt Abhishek Bachchan‘s career needed a small push to catapult him to the top bracket once again. Of late, he hasn’t signed new films and is choosing to focus on the best possible projects. Following his revamped priorities, his first new project will be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic on poet-lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi. Reshma has been brought in to oversee Abhishek’s forthcoming career moves and to position him as a prominent entertainment brand.”

Rumour mills were abuzz that Khiladi Akshay Kumar has also signed Reshma Shetty to manage his work. However, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from Akshay or his team.

Aish_salmanFor Bollywood fans, Eid is synonymous with a Salman Khan release. The actor has dominated the festival with six of his seven releases being runaway blockbusters. But come 2018, Khan will find a worthy competitor at the box-office — Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Rai’s Fanney Khan, which also stars Anil Kapoor in the titular role, will lock horns with Khan’s Race 3. The clash becomes all the more interesting given their history — Khan and Rai were in a three-year-long relationship before the duo parted ways in 2002.

Says a trade source, “It will be an exciting clash, since Aishwarya and Salman’s relationship continues to hold the audience’s attention, even years after it went kaput. While Salman boasts of tremendous box-office pull, Ash and Anil too have a huge fan following and will draw the audience to the theatres.”

The source further adds that the producers of Fanney Khan consulted their lead actors before zeroing in on the release date, especially since the makers of Race 3 had already booked the festival window. “Arjun N Kapoor, Prernaa Arora, Bhushan Kumar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra met Aishwarya and Anil, who were happy to have a festival release. The team is aware of Race 3 also releasing on Eid, but they are confident of their film.”

Producers Kapoor and Kumar released a joint statement saying, “We have locked the release date of Fanney Khan on Eid 2018 (June 15). We decided on Eid because the lead character Fanney Khan, played by Anil Kapoor, is a Muslim character and there’s no better day than Eid [to release it].” However, when asked about clashing with the action franchise, the producers refrained from commenting. Fanney Khan is almost complete, with only some scenes between Rai and Rajkummar Rao left to be shot. Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez’s actioner went on floors yesterday.

With Ash’s dates being wasted, the makers are now frantically looking at new dates. The actors were to begin shoot earlier in the month, but due to some costume hiccups, that shoot got postponed as well. Rajkummar has been vocal about dying to work with the beauty. His wait just got longer.

The Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case has jolted Hollywood, with Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow speaking about their horrific experiences with the producer. Turns out, the Weinstein story may have a Bollywood connect too in the form of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Buzz suggests that the former producer “begged” talent manager Simone Sheffield, who used to handle Rai’s Hollywood career, to arrange a meeting with the actor.

Encouraged by women coming out in the open about Weinstein’s sexual harassment, Sheffield too added her voice in the outrage. In a post, she stated, “I found it comical how hard Harvey tried to get Aishwarya alone…He asked me to leave the meeting numerous times and I politely declined. When we were leaving his office, he cornered me and said ‘what do I have to do to get her alone?’ I told him to ‘kiss my black a**’.”

There was talk of R Madhavan being part of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s production ‘Fanney Khan’, starring Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

The actor says he could not commit to the project due to date issues. But a birdie close to the project chirps to say Maddy asked for a whopper. As a result, the makers roped in Rajkummar Rao. Mehra and Bachchan were keen on Maddy though.
