The trailer of Fanney Khan released recently and we fell in love with it. Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan took us by storm with the heart-wrenching trailer. While we can’t wait to watch this Atul Manjrekar directorial on 3rd of August, recent news has left us quite surprised. A recent report in DNA suggests that Aishwarya who essays the role of songstress Baby Singh in the flick only has a special appearance in the film. Yes, you heard us right, As per the report, the actress only has a 20-minute role in the film.
A source revealed,
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.
There might be limited screen space but the subject of fat shaming, the film deals with, is the reason the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress agreed to star in it.
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.
Well, no matter the screen space we are sure that Aishwarya will manage to touch our hearts with her performance!
