Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai who was keen for her upcoming film Fanney Khan but cancelled the shoot today evening.
According to sources, “Yes it’s true that tomorrow’s shoot with Aishwarya and Raj Kummar is not happening. Aishwarya is extremely excited to begin shoot for the film but due to certain factors it didn’t happen that way. She had given her dates till October 8. They were to shoot October 6 and 7 but 8th was Karva Chauth. After that Aishwarya flies off to Maldives around the 9th night for her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday. Ash has always been very particular about what she wears. For Fanney Khan it was more so this time as Ash plays a glamorous singing diva and her clothes are sexy and glamorous.”
But when Aishwarya checked out the outfits with Manish she found that what he looked too Indian and didn’t give the right impression of a singer. “The fact that she’s playing a pop star along the line of Beyonce, her outfits have to portray that. Manish has been in Dubai and had a show in Kolkata so he was traveling all over. He was not completely ready with his outfits so then when we talked to production we told them we might as well do everything in one go rather than shoot in two breaks with clothes one is not satisfied with because they have been rushed. Production wise it made more sense so now Ash will begin her shoot for Fanney Khan from Diwali after she returns from Maldives.”
“It wasn’t just Aishwarya’s outfits. She had a two-day shoot while her co-actor Rajkummar had a one-day one. Even he requested his director to let him off tomorrow as he had some patchwork to complete for another film of his so the cancelation worked out for everybody around. Now they will shoot the whole chunk in one go.” source added.
This professionalism of the actress has made her producers (all working with her for the first time) extremely impressed. Adds the source, “Aishwarya treats every film like her own. It’s the producer’s money at stake and she understands that. Ash calmly explained to her producers that it made sense to shoot another day when everything is perfect than shoot with something sub-standard as that pulls down the production values of the film.”
