Aishwarya Rai Photoshoot at 2018 Cannes Film Festival
Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is currently working on Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Fanne Khan, reportedly got a song changed as she did not like the lyrics, a Pinkville report has claimed. Directed by Atul Manjrekar, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor in lead roles.“The earlier song had raunchy lyrics. Aishwarya didn’t appreciate that and asked the director and the producer to replace the song. The song was on the lines of ‘Fevicol Se’ and Aishwarya was uncomfortable to dance on it. The makers of the movie, immediately obliged and a new song was taken in the film. The new song’s lyrics are some what like – Halka Halka Sa Khumar Hai,” the website quoted a source as saying. The rep of the actor is yet to reply to HT’s questions regarding this matter.
According to a Mumbair Mirror report, the song in question was an item number which will be choreographed by Frank Gatson Jr, who has worked with international pop stars such as Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna. The song apparently features Aishwarya as an “Indian Madonna”, the report said, adding that Sunidhi Chauhan has lent her voice for the song.The tabloid quoted director Atul as saying, “Aishwarya plays a huge pop icon who’s extremely popular with the youngsters. Her character is a fabulous dancer and singer who performs on the global stage. While fleshing out her character, we began referencing a bunch of choreographers who do international live shows. Frank is among the best in the world and we decided to approach him.
