Exclusive: Deepika, Arjun, Dimple in 'Finding Fanny' trailer


The Homi Adajania directed quirky comedy, ‘Finding Fanny’ is slated to release in September but the makers have released the trailer already, on July 8th. Within 2 days the trailer has received more than 1 million hit, clearly proving that the audience is interested in watching the film.

In the trailer we are introduced one by one to the lead characters of the film, each one an oddball in their own right. Naseeruddin Shah plays the role of the old postman Ferdie.  Deepika plays the gorgeous Angie, a butcher by profession.  Dimple Kapadia will be seen as the aging but still beautiful Rosalina ‘Rosie’ Eucharistica. Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor is seen as the flirtatious old man Don Colaco. Arjun Kapoor is seen in his most unusual avatar, Savio Da Gama. His look is said to be inspired from the legendary John Lennon.

The most interesting part is that in the trailer you are given hints that every character has an interesting back story and you would have to see the film to find out. The main plot line deals with these 5 unusual characters undertaking a road trip together. The purpose of the trip is of course finding Fanny, full name Stephanie Fernandes, Ferdie’s childhood love.  But the problem is no one knows for sure whether she is alive or dead or is simply a creation of imagination.

What happens on the road trip forms the crux of the story. Actor Anjali Patil will be seen as Fanny while Bollywood hunk Ranveer Singh will also be making an appearance in the film. There are several things in the trailer that will capture your attention. Deepika looks very comfortable in Angie’s skin. This is going to be much different than her typical Bollywood roles. There are some interesting exchanges between her and Naseeruddin’s character.  Pankaj Kapoor is also very enjoyable as the lovable flirt. Arjun Kapoor still a rookie in the industry, has been placed among very powerful actors but at least in the trailer he seems to be holding his own.

The makers had undertaken a unique promotional strategy to create some buzz before the release of the trailer. They released a video where all five lead actors of the film gave out reasons for which people should see the film and they all did that in character. The video along with the trailer will surely stir up interest about the film.
