Actor Anil Kapoor gets a major throwback with his next film, Fanney Khan, in which he plays a taxi driver trying to help his aspiring musician daughter.
Many of his early films featured Kapoor playing the struggling common man, and his performances were appreciated by different strata of the audience. Fanney Khan showcases the struggles of a father to make her daughter's dream come true.
Anil Kapoor got back to his roots from the time of his debut days in Woh Saat Din (1983) - when Anil played the common man in many films, such as Ram Lakhan (1989), Jamai Raja (1990), and Laadla (1994). He later moved to slice-of-life films such as Biwi No. 1 (1999) and Dil Dhadakne Do (2015), in which his character moved in the more rarefied circles of society.
Anil tells us, "Fanney Khan is one character that I have resonated with the most so far. Not only do I identify with his struggles, but I also relate to his passion and his relationship with his daughter. This character's journey is similar to mine in many ways. I may not have played a taxi driver on-screen before, but I've played many characters who have risen from the ground up through sheer will and determination. But everything about Fanney Khan, his dream and his drive to overcome every obstacle, is special to me. He doesn't let his circumstances get in the way of his destiny, and that is something we can all learn from. It doesn't matter where we start, as long as we do.
It is after 17 years Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are coming together for a film.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays a singing sensation in the film. Rajkumar Rao will be portraying the love interest of Aishwarya in the film.
Gulshan Kumar, T-series and Virendra Arora present, A Film by ROMP pictures in association with Anil Kapoor film and communication Network.
