After Ram-Leela, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will share screen space in Homi Adajania’s short film Finding Fanny Fernandes, produced by Saif Ali Khan

It is learnt that Ranveer Singh will join the cast of the Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor-starrer Finding Fanny Fernandes (FFF). Director Homi Adajania approached the actor to do a cameo for the short film and he immediately agreed. Naturally, as it gives him a chance to spend time with his girlfriend Deepika; not that the shooting of Ram-Leela is over. The film is said to be based on a road trip, and a major portion of it will be shot in Goa.

Ranveer is currently recuperating from dengue at home, and the pair will start promoting their film as soon as he gets clearance from the doctors. FFF also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur. The movie, said to be a Konkani / English short film, is being backed by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan’s Illuminati Films. The team made Cocktail last year.

In last year’s hit, Cocktail, she played Saif Ali Khan’s loveable Punjabi mother and, since then, Dimple Kapadia has kept away from the big screen. Now, she has agreed to do Homi Adajania’s next, Finding Fanny Fernandes. Incidentally, it will be the veteran actor’s first film after the demise of her superstar husband Rajesh Khanna last year (he passed away five days after the release of Cocktail on July 13).

“Dimpleji shares a special relationship with Homi after working with him in his first two films — Being Cyrus (2006) and Cocktail. Plus, the script of the film is interesting,” says an industry insider. Homi’s next is an English Konkani short film that will also star Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah.

Although Homi’s film has several big names starring in it, all the characters are integral to the plot. And that’s why Dimpleji has agreed to do it. She will be seen playing a Goan in the film. It will be a different kind of part for her,” says the insider.

As for Homi’s project, just like his past films, it will be backed by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan’s production firm. The film is most likely to go on the floors around October and will be wrapped up in a start-to-finish schedule. This will be the first project that Dimple has signed up since the death of her superstar husband Rajesh Khanna, last year. Neither Saif nor Dinesh could be reached for a comment.
