Reputed musicians who have found their voice in the industry have made it known that India lacks a music industry. Director Atul Majrekar’s Fanney Khan shares the pain of the musicians as it follows the life of a struggling singer who dreams of making a name for himself in the world of music.
Anil Kapoor plays the role of Fanney Khan in the film, while Aishwarya Rai plays the role of a gamorous female rockstar who embodies the spirit of an Indian Madonna. Rajkumar Rao plays her love interest as the film proceeds. The trailer that released today does not give away much to the film, but still grips the audience to expect a lot more from this trio. Aishwary Rai makes a magical appearance in the trailer but does not reveal her character yet.
The much awaited Bollywood musical comedy is an official remake of the Belgian film Everybody’s famous! The original film directed by Dominique Deruddere was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 73rd Academy Awards.
But when it comes to music, the story in India is very different. The struggle itself is very real. While the film’s teaser has managed to capture the attention of fans who took to social media, Director of the film Atul Manjrekar said –
"We have kept the tone of the film real and this song too is being choreographed tastefully. I’ve been extremely lucky with my cast as none of the actors turned me down."
Fanney Khan is all set to release on the 3rd of August 2018. Co-produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Anil Kapoor, composed by musician Amit Trivedi, Irshad Kamil and Directed by Atul Manjrekar, can the film give a supporting voice to India’s many struggling musicians today?
