New Delhi: Several actors in Bollywood have played the double role in films and it has hit the bull's eye on the Box Office. From Sridevi's iconic 'Chaalbaaz' act to the recent Varun Dhawan's 'Judwaa 2' based on Salman Khan's original 'Judwaa'—all have been widely appreciated by the audiences.
Now, looks like it's time for gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to star in a double role. The actress reportedly has given her nod to the yet-to-titled venture where she will be seen in a dual role.
Mumbai Mirror quoted producer Prernaa Arora as confirming the development. She said, “Working with Aishwarya on Fanne Khan has been a pleasure. Now, there are two more films we are collaborating on with her. Siddharth Anand will be co-producing the film with me, which is an edgy thriller. This film will see Aishwarya in a double role and we will soon finalise the leading man opposite her.”
Besides, Ash will reportedly be seen in the remake version of legendary actress Nargis starrer 1967 film, Raat Aur Din. Prernaa told Mirror, “It will be a homage to Nargisji and is a special project for all of us. Aishwarya has already said that she would love to play the main role. I have also discussed the project with Sanjay sir (Dutt), and he has approved of the idea and our choice of Ash to play the role originally essayed by his late actress-mother.”
Aishwarya is currently working on Fanne Khan which stars Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on June 15, 2018. It is the official remake of the Oscar-nominated Belgian 2000 film Everybody's Famous!
