It looks like the Finding Fanny trailer, which released yesterday, has been quite the hit! The video has already racked up over a million views on YouTube, and that too in less than 22 hours. We’re not surprised – when you’ve got two of the youngest, most popular actors (Arjun Kapoor, Deepika Padukone) coming together with three industry stalwarts (Pankaj Kapur, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia) you kind of have to get a glimpse of what the end result looks like.
Love makes normal people do nutty things. But what if they were already a little nutty to begin with? I absolutely love this film. My producer, Dinesh Vijan, knew I would drive him insane and went out on a limb to back me. Deepika and Arjun Kapoor signed onto the film before Chennai Express and Two States had released and didn’t waiver because they had the same conviction. I couldn’t make the film without Naseer because his character was written for him. As for Dimple, if I make a film without her she will have my head on a platter. A great joy I experienced was being introduced to Pankaj Kapur. He is a phenomenal actor and it was a fabulous experience directing him. Finding Fanny was shot and wrapped in 36 days, a shoot-experience that was almost as goof-ball and hilarious as the story itself.
Finding Fanny is a film that needed the support of the online community and we are overwhelmed with the response to our trailer. People, especially the youth, are loving the 5 odd ball characters and embracing the madness that they bring.
If you haven’t caught the trailer yet, make sure you watch it above and let us know what your favourite part is (I, personally, love Deepika’s quote about love and her “you’ll get better, no?” scene with Arjun).
