Rajkummar Rao said he is both nervous and excited to romance Aishwarya Rai in his upcoming film “Fanney Khan.”
The 33-year-old actor is looking forward to start shooting for the movie, in which he is paired opposite the “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” star.
Produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film also features Anil Kapoor and Divya Dutta.
“I have started shooting for the film but I am yet to shoot with her (Aishwarya), though we have had our workshops and reading sessions.
“There is a love angle between us. I am looking forward to it, though I am nervous and excited because you have to romance the world’s most beautiful woman,” Rajkummar added, and quipped, “But it will come naturally, I am sure.”
The actor said he has started working with Anil on the film.
He was speaking at the trailer launch of his latest, “Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana.”
Like his previous films such as “Queen,” “Behen Hogi Teri” and “Bareilly Ki Barfi,” the upcoming film also has marriage as the backdrop.
Asked about his take on arranged marriage, the 33-year-old actor said, “I totally believe in arranged marriage, I think each to their own. My parents had an arranged marriage and they remained happy.
“Sure, there should be freedom, no one should be forced into an arranged marriage. Everybody has the freedom to choose their own partners.”
When quizzed if he has any plans of tying the knot soon, Rajkummar said, “I have been getting married, not married so many times in films that I am not getting the time to get married in real life. ‘Shaadi’ (marriage) is like a big festival, it is like making three films. You need a lot of time for that.”
Also starring Kriti Kharbanda, “Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana” is scheduled to release in November.
