Actor Rajkummar Rao has been floating on cloud nine post the release of his movie ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and why not? His exceptional performance was acknowledged and appreciated by none other than Amitabh Bachchan, who even wrote him a congratulatory note. This year has been a great one for Rao and after delivering back to back hits like ‘Trapped’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, the actor is set to floor us with his upcoming movie ‘Newton’ and the trailer looks highly promising. Now, the National Award Winning actor has bagged another big project. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Rao will soon be seen romancing actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Director Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra tweeted out a message welcoming the actor on board to the movie ‘Fanney Khan’.

The movie will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and will also have actor Anil Kapoor in the lead. Rao is currently busy filming Hansal Mehta’s biographical series ‘Bose’ in Poland and is apparently excited to share screen space with Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Talking about the film’s leading lady, Rao said, “She’s the most beautiful woman in the world. It’s a great story, there’s a lot of love, and the content is not just entertaining but is detailed and different. There will be lots of workshops and readings once I am back.”

‘Fanney Khan’ narrates the relationship between a father and his 16-year-old daughter who wants to become a singer. Anil Kapoor has been roped in for the father’s role and we are really excited to see on screen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after a long hiatus of 17 years. The actors were last seen together in ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai’. The movie is being said to be the Hindi adaptation of Dominique Deruddere’s 2000 hit ‘Everybody’s Famous!’ and will hit theatres in September 2017.

“‘Fanney Khan’ is a beautiful father and daughter story. We have a new girl playing a 16-year-old daughter. It picks up the cause of a young girl in a big way. And you will see the film in many layers… It’s about her aspirations of getting popular.

“At the same time, it’s about the whole body shaming of a girl — most of the girls not just in India, but around the world go through… The male gaze thing or female gaze also… (which is) very scary,” Mehra told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

To be directed by Atul Manjrekar, the film has music by Amit Trivedi and lyrics by Irshad Kamil.

A first look into the film — as shared by Anil — earlier this year, saw him dressed dressed in a blingy golden jacket singing his heart way as a spotlight shone on him.

According to latest reports, R. Madhavan will also be a part of the project, which is also backed by KriArj Entertainment and
