Bollywood Stunner Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Is Back On The Silver Screen With ‘Mohabbat’ From Upcoming ‘Fanney Khan’. The first song of Fanney Khan titled “Mohabbat” is out. “Mohabbat” introduces Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as singing sensation Baby Singh. The stunner Bollywood queen is looking at her sizzling best as she plays a rock star. The song uses the hook line from an old song, Jawaan Hai Mohabbat, from Anmol Ghadi. Sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, the song gets stuck in your head, especially the hook line of it. It is a treat for fans who have been waiting for the beauty queen to return on the silver screen.
The choreography of this song is done by American choreographer Frank Gatson Jr, who has earlier worked with Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez amongst others, was roped in for this number and he has done a good job. The choreography is like it will be on the stage and not like in a typical Bollywood dance number. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is playing the role of the pop singer Baby Singh. She has brought the oomph factor that the song required from her.
The director talking on the song, “The concept of the song came through Aishwarya’s character in the film. She is the number one singer and the most beautiful woman in the country. The song sees her character touring across India and performing in front of a live audience. For the sequence, we referenced recent concerts that featured Arijit Singh, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay. That was the starting point.”
Manish Malhotra was called on board for the costumes to make Aishwarya look like a diva in the song. Fanney Khan revolves around a father (Anil Kapoor) willing to go the extra mile (even if that involves kidnapping) to fulfill his daughter’s dream of being a singer. Rajkummar Rao and Divya Dutta also play pivotal roles in the family entertainer.
Slated to release on August 3, 2018, Fanney Khan is an official remake of 73rd Academy Awards nominee and Belgian film Everybody’s Famous. It has been bankrolled by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and T-Series.
