Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has stepped into the shoes of an Indian pop star for her upcoming film Fanney Khan. The latest song from the movie, Mohabbat, which was also heard in the Fanney Khan trailer has been out now. In the song, she plays a rockstar Baby Singh who is on a national tour. While maintaining the sensuality in her voice, she addresses her audience, which might remind you of her Ae Dil Hai Mushkil stint.
She then moves on to give her power-packed performance on the song which is voiced by the versatile playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan. The hookline of the song has been adapted from Noor Jehan’s song Jawaan Hai Mohabbat from the movie Anmol Ghadi. It was composed by Naushad.
As we told you before, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has trained under star choreographer Frank Gatson for the song in Fanney Khan. The renowned choreographer has worked with pop stars Beyonce, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez in the past.
Mohabbat has been penned by Irshad Kamil. Talking about her introduction in the film, director Atul Manjrekar told DNA, “Aishwarya plays a diva, a singing star. She’s the number one singer and the most beautiful woman in the country. The song sees her character touring across India and performing in front of a live audience. For the sequence, we referenced recent concerts that featured Arijit Singh, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay. That was the starting point.”
Fanney Khan starring Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is scheduled to release on 3rd August. It is said to be an Indian adaptation of Dutch movie Everybody’s Famous.
