Meanwhile, the director Manjrekar also has something to say about the pairing of Aishwarya and Rajkumar, “When I was making a character sketch it was like, she is the most beautiful woman in the country, with the perfect voice and she is an amazing dancer. A God-like combination and someone that young girls look upto.”
“It was a take on the word Fankaar. Every fankar thinks he thinks he is the Fanney Khan and that he has made it in life. That was the thought and I believe that there’s a Fanney Khan in every human being and it is their dreams that sets them apart,” he told about the intriguing title of the film.
On the professional front, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after 8 years are coming back with Gulab Jamun. The film will be directed by Sarvesh Mewara and Anurag Kashyap. The couple has previously done films together like Dhaai Akshar Prem Kay, Raavan, Guru, Kuch Naa Kaho, Umrao Jaan.
