Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will next be seen in Fanne Khan. In a recent interview, the actor spoke about being approached for the remakes of Raat Aur Din and Woh Kaun Thi.

After leaving us besotted with her sultry act in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is set to charm audiences yet again with Fanne Khan, which is being helmed by Atul Manjrekar and produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The movie also stars Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Divya Dutta.

Besides, Fanne Khan, rumours are rife that Aishwarya has been approached for two remakes of Bollywood classics — Raat Aur Din and Woh Kaun Thi.

Confirming the news to a national fashion magazine, Aishwarya revealed, “I’ve been approached for the remake of Raat Aur Din, which is a great opportunity and what’s funny is while filming Shabd, Sanju Sir (Sanjay Dutt) said he’d have loved for me to play the part, and I was very touched. We’re still working out the details. I’ve also been approached for a remake of Woh Kaun Thi”

Further speaking about starring in Fanne Khan, Aishwarya added, “In Fanne Khan, I’m playing a chapter in the narrative that I believe is intrinsic to the story.”

Talking about surviving in Bollywood and being a star, Aishwarya stated, “From the day I chose to step into showbiz, I’ve survived by holding on to who I am; my own best friend and brutal critic.”

Mumbai fashion website Pinkvilla had earlier revealed about Aishwarya and singer Pharrell’s secret photoshoot when Williams was in India, in March, during Holi.

An onlooker from the sets of the shoot had confessed, “Pharrell’s commercially successful single, Happy, was a super-hit worldwide and was the most successful song of 2014. Aishwarya is, of course, used to shooting with Hollywood stars including Steve Martin, Colin Firth, Dylan McDermott and Martin Henderson, having acted in Hollywood movies, but this one was a special one for her as she met Pharrell for the first time. They got along like a house on fire and kept talking through the shoot.He asked her about Bollywood movies, food and music as she shared some of her Hollywood experiences with him. Pharrell has come down to India to launch his new clothing line which is inspired by Holi, the festival of colours, so Aishwarya asked him about it too and his Holi plans as he will be in India then.”
