Nov 08, 2017: It’s not even a week since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor began shooting for Fanney Khan and there’s already a casualty reported on the sets of the film.
As per reports, a speeding bike rammed into one of the assistant directors of the film, while the team was filming their first schedule at Flora Fountain, Mumbai yesterday. Yes, turns out the crew member couldn’t hear the sound of the bike which was approaching, as she was plugged into the headphones connected to her walkie talkie. However, she was immediately rushed to the hospital and was discharged with minor injuries. A worried Aishwarya, who was just a few miles away from the accident spot too was running to help her out but was advised to step back, over safety measures.
Confirms the production team of Fanney Khan, “In an unfortunate accident yesterday, one of the assistant directors of our film- Fanney Khan, suffered some injuries during the shoot in Mumbai when a motor cycle rider crashed into her. She was immediately given first aid and taken to the hospital for further treatment. She is completely fine now and will soon join the crew for the shoot. The police are dealing with the errant motorcyclist as per the due process of law.”
Scheduled to release on 13 April 2018, Fanney Khan is an official adaptation of Everybody’s Famous!, a Dutch film which was nominated at the Oscars. The film also stars Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao but in case you are expecting a love track between Ash and Anil then that ain’t happening for Raj plays the man in love with Ash this time. As of now, Aishwarya’s gorgeous look is out and so is Anil Kapoor’s grey hair transformation. We are yet to see what Rajkummar is going to look like in the film, considering he is still recovering from a leg injury and will begin shooting only after a couple of weeks.
