Fanney Khan by debut director Atul Manjrekar is having its first day at the box-office as we speak, and according to early numbers the film has opened to a mixed occupancy and reviews. However, these projections are just the initial ones and are expected to get better with the weekend ahead. The film stars big names like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao among others, and incidentally marks Aish-Anil’s recast after 17 long years.
Needless to say, a lot of celeb reactions have poured in, congratulating the cast and crew. But amidst all, Abhishek Bachchan’s tweet after watching Fanney Khan takes home the award. If you haven’t guessed it already, Jr AB has gushed about the ‘Mrs’ and how she continues to be her favourite, and it’s all heart. He wrote, “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.”
Meanwhile, Abhishek and Aishwarya are making a comeback together and will be seen re-creating their magic onscreen after eight years with Gulab Jamun. It will be co-directed by Sarvesh Mewara and Anurag Kashyap. The real-life jodi who last re-created their magic in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan in 2010.
