Aishwarya who was last seen in Karan Johar's multi-starer romance, 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'. She then took a gap of five months because of personal reasons, talking about which she said, "I took a break for the past five months because of personal reasons. I'm glad I did. It meant a lot for me, personally, so I didn't have any professional meetings. I started last week and I have liked two subjects already".
Fanney Khan marks the directorial debut of Atul Manjrekar, who has been a part of the ad world for a decade and is a long-time associate of Mehra.
It is said that Anil who had played a grizzled role in 'Dil Dhadakne Do', will be seen playing a theoretical character in the film.
