T-Series in collaboration with Gulshan Kumar and Virendra Arora launched the official trailer of ‘FANNEY KHAN’ today. The movie is directed by Atul Manjeraker and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Anil Kapoor, P.S.Bharathi, Rajiv Tandon, Kusum Arora, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Nishant Pitti, and Virrendra Arora.
‘Fanney Khan’ is based on a Belgian satirical comedy film name- ‘Everybody’s Famous’, released in 2000. ‘Fanney Khan’ is a musical comedy and is set to hit the screens on 3 August 2018. The movie is starring Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Divya Dutta, and Rajkumar Rao.
Earlier, Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor had worked together in two romantic movies named ‘Humara Dil Aap Ke Pass Hai’ and ‘Taal’. In both the movies, they were cast opposite each other. But this is for the first time when Aishwarya has been shown younger than Anil Kapoor.
Anil Kapoor is playing the role of a father who wants to see his daughter as a famous singer.
After watching the trailer, the audience will get to know that the story is of a middle-class man who wanted to become a famous singer in his time, but due to lack of opportunity, he couldn’t fulfil his dream. Now he wants his daughter to fulfil his dream because just like her Anil Kapoor, her daughter is also interested in singing, but she fails to impress judges in various realities show.
After this heartbroken incident, Anil Kapoor, who is playing the role of Fanney Khan, decided to kidnap a famous singer with the help of his friend- Rajkumar Rao. That famous singer is no other than Aishwarya Rai.
As soon as the trailer starts, you will hear a voice saying:
‘Bhaiyo aur Behno
Aap ke samne arele hain
Jhankar orchestra ke fankar
And with this dialogue the character of Anil Kapoor is introduced, who was a singer in an orchestra band in the year 1999. But now the time has changed and with an increase in competition and reality shows, his daughter lacks behind, not because she is not a good singer, but because she is an overweight girl. You will see her performing on a college stage and everybody is teasing her by calling her ‘Moti’ (fat).
T-series has also included three songs of the movie in their launching trailer:
Jawan hai mohabbat samajh lo ishara
Akele akele na hoga guzara
The second song is a remix version of ‘Ye jo halka halka suroor hai’. This is one of the most famous songs originally sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and since then different versions of this song has been released. Another song is:
‘Tere jaisa tu hai
Mere jaise main hu
Tere mere jaisa koi hoga kya
Tere jaisa tu hai
Mere jaise main hu’
This song seems to be a motivational and an inspirational song of the movie. A large part of the movie has been shot in Mumbai.
There are various places in Mumbai where the shooting of ‘FANNEY KHAN’ might have been taken place. For instance, Gateway of India, Marine Drive, Sanjay Gandhi National park, Juhu Beach, Siddhivinayak temple, Chowpatty, Rajabai clock tower, and some others.
As the story is about a father struggling to establish his daughter as a famous singer, so, nothing can be the best location other than Mumbai. Mumbai is the place where every person comes with a dream in his or her eyes and that is why this economic capital of India is known as ‘MAYANAGRI’.
The shooting of ‘Fanney Khan’ started on the same day with another movie produced by Kriraj Entertainment- ‘Kedarnath’ in Mumbai. In an interview, Prerna Arora, producer of Kriraj Entertainment said:
“We are extremely excited to kick-start our most dear projects Fanney Khan & Kedarnath on the same day.
