Rajkummar Rao will have to wait for some more time to romance Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on screen in Atul Manjrekar’s Fanney Khan. It seems destiny has some other plans for the two actors whose film is being produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor. A few days ago the first schedule between Aishwarya and Rajkummar got cancelled as her outfits were not ready on time. Now that schedule which had been postponed to October 26 is not happening as the actor fractured his ankle on the sets of Farah Khan’s show Lip Sing Battle which is aired on Star Plus.
Says a source. It happened on Saturday when Rajkummar was shooting for Faraha’s show. He was trying to jump from a height during rehearsals and hit a matka while dancing to a Chin Ta Ta Chinta Chita from Rowdy Rathore but lost his balance. Raj was doing a taekwondo turn n kick in air. He did it perfectly all six times that he rehearsed but on the seventh time just landed badly and fell at an awkward angle and fractured his ankle. As it was his starting act, the shoot was immediately cancelled. He was in a great deal of pain so Farah put him in her car and took him to the Kokilaben Hospital. It wasn’t very responsible for Rajkummar to do such a tough dance step without much rehearsal a that too, just four days before his Fanney Khan shoot with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Poor guy, he is feeling very upset as it’s never happened to him till now and for letting Ash down but sometimes these things happen.
