Aishwarya to go the Beyonce way for Fanney Khan!

  • Print


Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is all set to play a singing sensation in her upcoming next Fanney Khan will maker her entry with the song 'Mohabbat' choreographed by Frank Gatson Jr and promises to match international concert standards.
The introductory song is touted to be one of the highlights of the musical family entertainer.
Revealing the details of the song debutant director Atul Manjrekar said, "The concept of the song came through Aishwarya's character in the film. She plays a diva, a singing star. She's 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".
In order to keep the look and costumes, producers Bhushan Kumar, Anil Kapoor and PS Bharathi roped in American choreographer Frank Gatson Jr who has earlier worked with Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez amongst others.
Talking about working with Frank, the director said,"There is great talent in India and one of them, Ganesh Acharya, is the main choreographer for my film. However, with Aishwarya's song, we were attempting a performance of an international calibre. That said, let us not call Frank a choreographer. He is more of a performance designer. It's more of a performance-oriented number than a dance sequence".
Throwing light on the experience of working with the international choreographer, Atul Manjrekar said, "When we approached him, he was very excited about the project and wanted to work with Aishwarya.
