Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Fanney Khan has failed miserably at box office. It made a business of only 2.15 crore on its first day, and on the second day it earned 2.50 crores. Hence Aishwarya Rai’s flop saga continues. A trade analyst and a prominent filmmaker blamed Aishwarya for Fanney Khan’s debacle.
A leading trade analyst was quoted in Asian Age as saying, “Somehow Aishwarya’s comeback films are not working. It could be her selection of roles. It certainly can’t be the way she looks, as she is looking better than in any of her films.”
A filmmaker was quoted as saying, “She (Aishwarya Rai) wants to go from Jennifer Lopez to Meryl Streep, but she doesn’t have the range. In Jazbaa, she played a traumatised mother but looked shallow and too taken up with looking glamorous. In Fanney Khan, she is fine singing, dancing and playing the pop diva. But when she has to communicate her character’s loneliness, she is at a loss. Aishwarya lacks the emotional depth to pull off 40-plus characters“.
Fanney Khan happens to be the first Aishwarya’s film Aaradhya Bachchan watched. Talking to leading portal actress revealed saying, “Fanney Khan is my first film where she actually sat through the whole film. I think her smiling eyes said it all. She had actually seen me shoot a part of my song in Fanney Khan”.
As of for now Aishwarya’s Box Office Report:
Fanney Khan: Rs 9 Crore in the first week
Sarabjit: Rs 33 Crore total collection
Jazbaa: Rs 31 Crore total collection
