Fanney Khan shooting delayed as Rajkummar Rao gets injuredOct 23, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
Of late, Rajkummar Rao has been unstoppable, this year the versatile actor had not one but five releases until now, and has a film – ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ about to release, which is followed by a few other films. That apart, the actor has also been extremely excited about his next project - ‘Fanney Khan,’ where he’ll be seen romancing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
However, the shooting for the film, which will be directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has been delayed once again. A few days ago, the first schedule for the film was about to get started but got cancelled as Aishwarya Rai’s outfits were not ready on time. Now, finally they were about to begin shooting when another mishap has further delayed the film’s schedule. Rajkummar Rao has recently fractured his ankle on the sets of Farah Khan’s show Lip Sing Battle.
A source revealed to a web portal, “It happened on Saturday when Rajkummar was shooting for Farah’s show. He was trying to jump from a height during rehearsals and hit a matka while dancing to ‘Chin Ta Ta Chinta Chita’ from ‘Rowdy Rathore’ but lost his balance. Raj was doing a taekwondo turn and kick in air. He did it perfectly all six times that he rehearsed but on the seventh time just landed badly and fell at an awkward angle and fractured his ankle. As it was his starting act, the shoot was immediately cancelled. He was in a great deal of pain so Farah put him in her car and took him to the Kokilaben Hospital.”
Apparently, the actor has suffered two fractures and had to undergo a surgery. And obviously, in this condition Rajkummar can’t go for the shoot.
The source added, “His dates with Aishwarya were from October 26 but obviously now he won’t be able to shoot so soon. The actor will have to rest it out for the next couple of weeks which means Aishwarya’s dates will get wasted. She’s been informed about it and is naturally concerned about Raj. Aishwarya is also a thorough professional and has an extremely busy date diary so one wonders what will happen on those combination dates of hers and Rajkummar?”
Producer of Fanney Khan, Prernaa Arora said, “It is rather unfortunate that Rajkummar Rao has fractured his leg. I hope he gets well soon and yes, we will have to postpone the shoot of Fanney Khan. We will figure the dates once we know when Raj will recover and get a clearance from his doctors.”
Here’s wishing the talented actor a speedy recovery.
