Finding Fanny’s trailer that released last morning has been a talking subject over the internet. The film starring Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor in the lead is directed by the Cocktail fame director Homi Adajania who also helmed Saif Ali Khan starrer Being Cyrus.

The trailer looked fresh and very interesting with as many as five characters being in the central storyline. The film that is made in English had no Hindi dialogue but the makers are keen on releasing it in Hindi as well. The trailer brought a smile on everybody’s face especially with the grace of actors like Pankaj Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah present. The film infact was shot in just 36 days as the director tells. “I absolutely love this film. A start-to-finish, the film was shot in 36 days flat!” says Homi. Finding Fanny’s story is about five different characters played by Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapur who set out on a road trip in search of love.

Homi Adajania talks about Finding Fanny (produced by Saif Ali Khan)

Finding Fanny is an absurdly entertaining story that throws together a bunch of odd balls on an unlikely mission. In reality, it’s just a last-ditch effort by each of them to grab at that mythical second chance. And to do this I handpicked a mixed bag of nuts.

Naseeruddin Shah plays Ferdie, the old postmaster of a Goan village, where no one sends or receives letters. Invisible in a crowd of one, he once summoned up the courage to propose to the love of his life – 46 years too late. Deepika’s character is Angie, an unlikely combination of a widow and a virgin. She happily stays put in her comatose village.

Arun Kapoor plays Savio D’Gama, 27 going on 12, who pride himself on being different from the others and runs away to Mumbai to make it big, or so he thought. Dimple, as Rosie Eucharistica, is the self-appointed pit-bull that guards the moral fabric of the village. One might say she goes through life oblivious of anything beyond her immediate largeness. Pankaj Kapur plays Don Pedro Cleto Colaco, a frustrated artist who knows that he is a has-been who never-was. His muses were once large women, so he considers Rosie’s fat-rolls and inspiration.

After Cocktail proved to be a blockbuster, the industry expected director Homi Adajania to go mainstream. Instead, the director has ready an English language film set in Goa with actors Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur, Dimple Kapadia, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor.

Produced by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan’s Illuminati Films, Finding Fanny Fernandes is expected to be a quirky love story and a road film where the characters set out to find “Fanny”. Ever since they decided to back the film, the producers have been sure that Finding Fanny Fernandes will find a global audience.

In keeping with this thought, the makers are planning to premiere the film at the Toronto Film Festival. While Vijan refused to comment on this, he did admit that Illuminati has got Fox Star Studios International on board to release the film internationally. “The film has a wide appeal and can travel beyond India, which is why we wanted to partner with an international studio,” he says. However, the makers don’t wish to alienate the Indian audience and to reach out to the massive local market, they are also working on a Hindi version of the film. The first promo of Finding Fanny Fernandes will be out in July while the film will releasein September.
