It is heard that even though R. Madhavan agreed to be a part of Fanney Khan, the film’s makers faced a stumbling block after they heard his remuneration charges. As per reports, R. Madhavan had asked for an astronomical price of a whopping 1.5 crore for a 15-day shoot, which the film’s makers found it tough to comply since the said remuneration was way beyond their budget. That’s why both the parties (R. Madhavan and the makers of Fanney Khan) mutually decided to part ways.
The makers of Fanney Khan found an immediate replacement of R. Madhavan in the form of Rajkummar Rao, who has won accolades for his acting talent in almost all his films. This was the reason why Fanney Khan will now see Rajkummar Rao playing the love interest of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and not R. Madhavan.
