Fanney Khan starring Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Rajkumar Rao directed by Atul Manjrekar is based on a life of a common man who is struggling all hard to fulfill the desire of his daughter to be as a pop star. The film is liked by fans as well as critics.
Well, the expectation from the film was very high but somewhere it fails. Yes, the film only earns Rs 2.75 crore on its second day at the box office. In the film, Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shared screen space after 18 years and this is also the first time paring with Rajkumar Rao.
Directed by Atul Manjrekar Fanney Khan shows the unconventional binding of the Rajkumar and Aishwarya and on that, the director said, “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.
No matter what the collection said but the films are praised by critics and fellow actors. Even Abhishek Bachchan after watching the film says Aishwarya continues to be hir favorite and tweeted: “Just saw #FanneyKhan. What a beautiful film. A great message and worthy film. Congratulations to the entire team. Leaves a huge emotional lump in your throat. @AnilKapoor, Rajkumar, Pihu, @divyadutta25 are all so, so good. And the Mrs. continues to be my favourite! Best wishes.”
