There are reports suggesting that KriArj Films, the production house which scored a hat-trick of hits in 2016-17 with Rustom, Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Padman is going through a rough patch this year what with their ambitious war epic Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran and the costly love story Kedarnath hitting roadblocks. Now there are further reports that KriArj’s Aishwarya Rai-Anil Kapoor starrer Fanney Khan has also been stalled due to non-payment of the crew.
“Hogwash,” says a prominent member of the film’s team. “There are no dues. The film is nearly complete. We just need to shoot a song, which awaits the dates of a choreographer. Where are these reports coming from? There are also wild conjectures about Aishwarya being unhappy with the progress of Fanney Khan. Completely false.”
According to sources close to the actress she is “extremely gung-ho” about the film and the character in Fanney Khan. Aishwarya will be doing a remake of Raj Khosla’s horror classic WohKaun Thi for KriArj films. Discussions on Aishwarya’s looks and songs for WohKaun Thi have already started. Incidentally these negative stories about KriArj Entertainment started when the production house got into a legal scuffle with John Abraham’s J A Entertainment over their collaborative film Parmanu.
