3 songs for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! – Each with a distinct flavour, to do justice to her character of a singer
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan begins shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Fanney Khan from October 22. The actress, who was recently in Maldives for her father-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan’s, 75th birthday celebrations, is in Mumbai for Diwali.
According to a source, “She will start Fanney Khan right after Diwali. She will shoot continuously till November end. It’s a start-to-finish schedule.” Ash plays a singer in the film, and we hear there are three different songs featuring her.
AN INTRODUCTORY TRACK
Since Ash plays a singer-performer in the film, her introductory song needs to be designed to show that. Reveals our source, “Ash’s first song in the film will be a dance track. It’s like a stage song, on the lines of a Crazy Kiya Re. It’s a peppy, upbeat, western hip-hop song. International choreographers will be flown down to design the track. It will be the biggest song of the film.”
A LOVE SONG
While the first song is a dance number, the second is the romantic track between her and Rajkummar Rao, who plays her love interest in the film. “It will be a melodious love song, which will see them sharing some beautiful moments. It will be shot in Mumbai,” our source tells us.
Anil Kapoor will be with her in the third track. Says the source, “This again is a slow number, not a dance track. It will be the only song featuring both, Ash and Anil. It will be an emotional number, capturing the angst and despair of the characters.”
