And the Mrs continues to be my favourite: Abhishek reviews ‘Fanney Khan’

Junior Bachchan appears to have watched 'Fanney Khan' at a premiere screening hosted on Thursday night in Mumbai.

New Delhi: The much awaited musical Fanney Khan hit theatres today. Directed by debutante Atul Majrekar and produced by the ace filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Pihu Sand and Divya Dutta.

Out of all the reactions that have been pouring in for the film, the best one is probably Abhishek Bachchan’s, just
because he can’t stop gushing about his dear wife. Abhishek appears to have watched Fanney Khan at a premiere screening hosted on Thursday night in Mumbai and congratulated the entire team and tweeted messages for the cast.

His tweet read, “Just saw #FanneyKhan. What a beautiful film. A great message and worthy film. Congratulations to the entire team. Leaves a huge emotional lump in your throat. @AnilKapoor, Rajkumar, Pihu, @divyadutta25 are all so, so good. And the Mrs. continues to be my favourite! Best wishes.”

Fanney Khan, a remake of the Oscar-nominated Dutch film Everybody’s Famous, tells the story of the difficult journey of an aspiring singer from a lower middle-class background, who must not only fight social prejudice (she is booed for being fat by audience at a show), but also manage the expensive proposition of getting ‘launched’ as a singer.

On the workfront, Abhishek and Aishwarya are all set to co-star together in Anurag Kashyap’s Gulab Jamun.
The film reunites them onscreen after eight years, post Raavan which released in 2010.
