  • Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor

"I absolutely love this film", says director Homi Adajania of Finding Fanny, which stars Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor. A start-to-finish film, it was shot in 36 days flat! The film also features Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur and Naseeruddin Shah. 

Homi wonders aloud, "Love makes normal people do nutty things. But what if they were already a little nutty to begin with? 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."

Adds the director, "A great joy I experienced was being introduced to Pankaj Kapur. It was a fabulous experience directing him. Finding Fanny was a shooting experience that was almost as goofy and hilarious as the story itself."
