#FanneKhan release date finalised: 3 Aug 2018... Stars Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao... Gulshan Kumar presentation... TSeries and ROMP Pictures production... Atul Manjrekar directs.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) May 31, 2018
Of co-starring with Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor in a film, Rajkummar Rao told IANS, "I had a great experience working with both Aishwarya and Anil sir. Fanne Khan has shaped out quite well. I am very happy with the film." Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor co-starred in the films Taal and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai.
The film's shooting was stalled in between as the crew members alleged that their dues had not been cleared. "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," a source earlier told mid-day. Fanne Khan is among the list of trouble KriArj films (co-owned by Prernaa Arora).
Fanne Khan will clash at the box office with Karwaan, starring Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar. Karwaan's final release date was also announced on Thursday.
