Till date, it was being believed that it was the decision of producer Prerna Arora and actor Anil Kapoor that their film Fanne Khan will clash with Salman Khan’s Race 3 during the forthcoming Eid next year. But then sources reveal that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was very much in the loop and it happened with her consent.
Arora confirms the same. “Of course, Aishwarya is the lead actress and she was in the know of when we wanted to release the film and the date has been finalised with her consent,” says Arora about the release date.
Interestingly Aishwarya is doing one more film for Prerna and team and this one is going to be directed by Siddharth Anand. We are also being told by sources in the trade that the film is a take off on Satyen Bose’s film Raat Aur Din where Nargis Dutt had essayed a character with a multiple personality disorder in a National Award-winning role opposite Firoz Khan and Pradeep Kumar. The film released 50 years ago in 1967 and two men will be cast opposite Rai in the movie.
