Ever since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan stunned the audience in Omung Kumar's Sarbjit and Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in 2016, people are eagerly waiting to know which will be her next film.
Speculations were rife that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has greenlighted few projects. However, there was nothing concrete. Recently, when Aishwarya walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, she interacted with a daily from there. When asked about the movie, she had said, "No, I took a break for the past five months because of personal reasons. I’m glad I did. It meant a lot for me, personally, so I didn’t have any professional meetings. I started last week and I liked two subjects already. So, as and when, we feel the need or when the time is right, we will share the news with you. But I just started listening to scripts now. Until then, I had taken time off from work for my family, especially my mother."
In the same interview though, she confirmed that both her and Abhishek Bachchan had been approached for Anurag Kashyap's Gulab Jamun and that the modalities are being worked out.
Interestingly, today, according to a trade magazine, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has finally signed her next and it is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Fanney Khan. The movie was in the news last year when Anil Kapoor had shared his first look from the movie. He had posted, "This #Eid, we begin a new transformation... #FanneyKhan & I embark on an exciting journey today! @RakeyshOmMehra."
The trade magazine states that the movie will now be produced by Rakeysh and Prerna Arora of KriArj Entertainment. Aishwarya will reportedly have a strong role in the movie and isn't paired opposite Anil Kapoor!
We tried to get in touch with both Aishwarya and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's team and are waiting for a revert from them.

Have nice day good night
Jai shri Krishna

The official announcement haven't even been made for both of her rumoured films, this is so annoying.

She is over!! Cannes is her only job now!!

Running after Khans for roles is your new job.

She really can't act

She looks like a fanney anyways

17 years is nothing. Difference between Fatima and Aamir is like 25. And Ash has played love interest to Rajinikanth, he's like 65-66. Plus, Anil looks great still.

The movie is remake of Dutch movie Everybody's Famous. Anik Kapoor plays a dad of aspiring singer who kidnaps country's number one singer (no romantic track involved). I think Aishwarya will play role of star singer.

Very nice to see both

Without doing any movies with Aamir there is no use in Bollywood ur careers no one reminds u

Sridevi did any movie with Aamir?

I don't want her to do this boring movie..but if Aamir can play romantic interest after playing father to Fatima (few months back)..why not ash can play daughter after playing love interest 18 years back

Ashwariya rai is looking beautiful

Rakesh Omprakash Mehra and his obsession with Anil Kapoor and family...speechless. Think outside the box, Rakesh!


Pop singer and dancer is her role

Gee, I hope she is not Anil Kapoor's love interest! eww.

Nice.. Want to see her on big screen again.

Aishwarya way to good to star in this F grade project.

Dear someone Down there who wrote " Anil is a little to ild than Aish " Anil is 17 or 18 years older than her and that's little ?

Aishwarya said in cannes that shes agreed to doing 2 movies with established directors that she has worked with before. This movie is being directed by a new director.

I don't think Aishwarya would do this movie, as its going to be directed my a new director. In her interview with Anupama Chopra in cannes, she said that she wants to work with experienced directors and not new directors and for that reason she has agreed to do 2 films with 2 film-makers that she has worked with previously. Maybe Aishwarya has just been approached for the film.

I read the movie is about "father to struggling singer", but I assume Ash is his love interest? She's just a little too old to be his daughter. Maybe it'll be like a lot of movies now, like Sultan, where they have a young and old story.

Between them the difference is 17 years, so she may well be his daughter))

Problem is is that he's played a romantic lead opposite to her already a few times (Taal/ Hamara dil aapke paas hai)

I love Taal, that's my childhood :)
