Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra: Anil Kapoor And Aishwarya Rai were our natural choices for Fanney Khan
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is known for making films that do not only entertain, but also give some sort of message and leave a lasting impression on viewers' mind same goes for his next release Fanney Khan.
The filmmaker's next production venture is getting two famous personalities together on the big screen and they are none other than Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Rakesyh feels like both the actors were made for these roles.
When asked Rakesyh Omprakash Mehra about this he said, Anil and Aishwarya were our natural choices to play the part of Fanney Khan and Baby Singh.
Fortunately, the casting fell in place and both of them were very excited to play their parts. You know there are some things that are meant to be. And now when I look at the film it feels like the roles were tailor made for them. It all fits in so well.
The superhit Jodi of Taal Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor will be seen recreating the magic on screen after 17 years for the upcoming film Fanney Khan.
The duo has worked together in Subhash Ghai's Taal which released in 1999 and Satish Kaushik's Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai which released in 2000. It will be only after that Aishwarya and Anil would come together for a film with Fanney Khan. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's film's cast has always been spoken about.
