Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao’s chemistry in the trailer of the movie Fanney Khan has been attracting attention since the very beginning. While the fans were excited to see the two romance, it is said that Bareily Ki Barfi actor Swati Semwal is actually the once starred opposite Rajkummar.
Swati Semwal, who played Kriti Sanon's friend Rama in "Bareilly Ki Barfi", will be playing Rajkummar’s girlfriend in the movie. This will be the second time when Swati will be sharing the screen space with Rajkummar Rao after ‘Bareily….’. About her role, Swati says she will be seen in a bold and modern avatar.
"In 'Fanney Khan', I am playing the role of an upcoming actress. This character is very different from the sweet, girl-next-door character I played in 'Bareilly Ki Barfi'. Here I will be seen in a bold modern avatar opposite Rajkummar Rao," Swati said in a statement.
"It was fun working with Rajkummar again and being a part of a good film with Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. You feel elated when you see your hard work paying off," added Swati.
Swati is also a filmmaker. Commenting on her directorial project "Sameera - The Unusual - Unconditional Love Trilogy", which released on Sony LIV on Monday, Swati said: "It is a short movie written and directed by me. I play the character of a Muslim painter named ‘Sameera' who is in her late 20s and is deeply immersed in love with someone".
Produced by First Step Entertainment Capital Production, it stars Swati in the lead.
