After a change of hands, Bhushan Kumar has taken over Fanne Khan from Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor’s KriArj Entertainment. Along with Bhushan, the film is also being co-produced by Rakesysh Omprakash Mehra. We hear after the change of hands, the budget of the film is being revised and pay cheques of the actors as well. According to a report in DNA, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been requested to slash her fees for Fanne Khan.
Though the makers have almost shot the whole film, a few important scenes and two songs are yet to be filmed. The shooting is stalled at the moment due to non-payment of dues. One of the crew members earlier while talking to Mid-day had said, “We were told that the payments would come in by early March, but haven’t received a penny. So, we’ve decided not to start work on the next schedule (filming of two songs) till we get paid.” We wonder just like Ash, have the makers asked Anil and the Rajkummar to take a pay cut as well.
A Hindi remake of the Oscar-nominated Everybody’s Famous, Fanne Khan will star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles. Earlier the film directed by Atul Manjrekar was to clash with Salman Khan’s Race 3 but with a few portions left to be filmed, the film will release on August 3 and will clash with Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar starrer Karwaan.
