Producer Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra's Anil Kapoor starrer Fanney Khan started on with the movie 6 years back before finally roping in with the director Atul Manjrekar.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and his Producer wife, Bharati Mehra saw the 2000 Oscar winning Dutch Film, 'Everybody's Famous' which inspired them to make something closer to make a film closer home.
Bharati Mehra said,"We finally found the perfect director in Atul Manjrekar. It was co-producer Smitha who brought to us an Award-winning Ad Film of Atul and interestingly it was on a father-daughter relationship without any dialogues. And that's how we got our director for Fanney Khan."
This will be the first time that moviegoers will see this new director-producer duo in Bollywood.
Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra even shares, "Fanney holds a lot of sentimental value to me as a filmmaker. The entire process of executing the project has been seamless, the selection of the director to the casting of the actors, every step has been effortless."
Fanney Khan will see veteran actor Anil Kapoor playing the role of a doting father to college going daughter who dreams of becoming the next singing sensation. A one of its kind musical entertainer, Fanney Khan revolves around the bond between the father and daughter with a pinch of comedy and drama.
Anil Kapoor is seen in various shades of emotions. From being a happy-go-lucky guy to portraying an emotional father encouraging his daughter is gripping enough to create interest for this movie.
On sharing his views on the actor, director Atul Manjrekar said," Even by looking at him feels like a common man. Everything with him was so true and believable."
Alongside Anil Kapoor, Fanney Khan will see RajKummar Rao, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Divya Dutta and Pihu Sand sharing the same screen space in the movie.
Fanney Khan is Atul Manjerekar's debut film as a director.
