Last year the first look of Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s Fanney Khan was released. The look featured Anil Kapoor’s back in a golden blazer and was loved instantly by everyone. Couple of months ago it was announced that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be the leading lady of the film and fans of the stars were excited to see the two reunite after successful films like Taal and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. But Anil Kapoor, during the promotions of Mubarakan, revealed exclusively to BollywoodLife that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a part of the film but is not paired opposite him.

Anil Kapoor revealed, “Most exciting part is she (Aishwarya) is not opposite me. So that makes it different. Not that she was opposite me in Taal she was opposite Akshaye Khanna. But there was a certain undercurrent of romance in Taal and Hamara Dil AApke Paas Hai she was my wife.” The actor further went on and said, “So we both are strangers in the film, strangers who come together but there is no romance which makes it exciting. That is the different part of our casting.

Later there were several reports of makers zeroing in on names like Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal etc and there was no doubt that anyone would have loved to act alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, let alone leave the chance to romance her on screen. Well turns out there is one actor who isn’t interested. According to a report by DNA After Hrs, Laal Rang and Gurgaon fame actor, Akshay Oberoi was approached for the role to star opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and he turned it down.

A source informed the daily, “Akshay Oberoi was approached for the film. Talks were initiated with the actor but it didn’t work out eventually. Now, they are still hunting for a young actor.

Well we don’t know what may be the reason for things not working out. Is it because Akshay Oberoi is Vivek Oberoi’s cousin and Vivek and Aishwarya had a history. Well, our guess is as good as yours.
