Aishwarya Rai is set to play a woman with multiple personality disorder in an adaption of the classic movie ‘Raat Aur Din’ from 1967.
She has recently finished shooting for her upcoming movie ‘Fanney Khan’ and has shown interest in this offer given to her by the producer of her new film.
In the movie, Aishwarya Rai will take on the role of Varuna originally played by Nargis, the mother of Sanjay Dutt.
The character in the movie is of a married woman. She is a homemaker during the day but takes on another identity during the night.
“The film is ready to go on floors and is expected to be shot in Europe mid-next year. Aishwarya has also shown interest in the Raat Aur Din adaptation, details of which are expected to be finalized soon”, a close source told a publication.
“Working with Aishwarya on Fanney Khan has been a pleasure. Now, there are two more films we are collaborating on with her. Siddharth Anand will be co-producing the film with me, which is an edgy thriller. This film will see Aishwarya in a double role and we will soon finalize the lead man opposite her”, producer Prerna Arora said in a statement.
He further added that “It will be a homage to Nargisji and is a special project for all of us,” Prerna added.
“Aishwarya has already said that she would love to play the main role. I have also discussed the project with Sanjay sir (Dutt), and he has approved of the idea and our choice of Ash to play the role originally essayed by his late actress-mother.”
Aishwarya Rai’s ‘Fanney Khan’ will release with Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3′ on Eid-ul-Fitr next year.
Seeing the beautiful actress taking up a such a serious role once again will be something old Aishwarya fas would love to see. This role is sure to get her people’s attention, not just for her looks, but for her acting as well.
