Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has a 20 minute role in Anil Kapoor's Fanney Khan?

Fanney Khan is one of the most eagerly awaited films of the year and after the trailer was released, the expectations went sky high. Not only the heart warming tale, but fans are also waiting to see Aishwarya's diva like avatar on the big screen. However, looks like all Ash fans might be disappointed. From what we hear, Aishwarya's role in Fanney Khan has been limited to an extended cameo of just 20 minutes. Surprised?

Well, according to a leading daily, Aishwarya has a short but interesting role in the movie. As a source revealed to them, "She’s barely in it for around 15 - 20 minutes, so it’s a special appearance. She shot for around 12 - 13 days with Anil and Rajkummar Rao. Two songs, a dance number and a love track, have been filmed on her." Though this might be a short screen time, her presence in the film is huge. Not only does she turn around the story, but her screen presence will surely bring in the audience.

Like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, her role is small, but she chose it because of the message attached to the movie. As the source added, "When Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and director Atul Manjrekar narrated the script to her, she was drawn to it because of the theme of fat shaming, which she feels, needs to be addressed." However, we feel that Ash should do bigger and more meaningful roles. Anyway, what do you guys have to say about this latest revelation? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!
