Rajkumar Rao is gearing up for Fanney Khan
After bagging the role in Fanney Khan opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, there are reports that the actor will be seen opposite Sonam Kapoor in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra’s directorial debut project.
A source told a leading daily, “The makers are keen to cast Rajkummar Rao for a prominent role in this film and have already pitched him the idea.’’
As per sources, Rao would not be playing Sonam’s love interest in the film but it’s a very crucial character in the film. Also reportedly Anil Kapoor and Sonam will be playing reel life father and daughter in the film.
Earlier in an interview, Anil had revealed that there are talks of a project with Sonam. He said, “There are talks, something really big and exciting is coming our way. It is something really beautiful which we are looking forward. If it happens, you will come to know very soon. Hope it happens soon. It is something very fascinating that has been offered.”
Talking about the movie Fanney Khan, Rajkummar had earlier said, ‘’ I am not really supposed to talk about the role but all I can say is it is a well edged out part, something I have never done earlier. I have just got back from Toronto and my preparation mode is on. Just keeping my fingers crossed. Right now I am just a bit nervous just like I get every time before starting a new film.”>
