Earlier we broke the news that, 'Fanney Khan', which will be directed by Debutant director Atul Manjrekar, has singed Rajkummar Rao in the lead apart from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor.
The very talented Rajkummar Rao, who turned 30 this month, will be romancing the Bollywood beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who crossed 40 last year.
Atul Manjrekar, who is helming the film Fanney Khan, selected Rajkummar who has gained the reputation of a steady actor now. While the two actors do make for an interesting combination, there is a slight practical problem regarding their 10-year age difference.
But there is nothing that a bit of facial hair can’t alter. We hear Rajkummar will grow a beard to look compatible with his co-star rather than a fanboy, which Raj admits to being.
The forthright Bareilly Ki Barfi actor says, “I am super-excited to be working with her (Aishwarya). I’ll start preparing for my part in Fanney Khan the moment I am done shooting for my film on Subhash Chandra Bose.”
Years ago when Shah Rukh Khan faced the same compatibility issue with his favourite Sridevi in Army.
He had pasted a moustache on his face to add years to his biological age. Never again did Shah Rukh use facial hair, as he hates disguises and make-up.
