Bollywood babe Deepika Padukone, who had a great year at the box office with four consecutive hits in 2013, is back to reclaim the success streak yet again. Her most awaited film Finding Fanny Fernandes, directed by Cocktail director Homi Adjania, is set to take the box-office by storm in August.
While Deepika has claimed the multi-lingual movie (Konkani-English) to be an off-beat film that may not set the cash registers ringing but something she wanted to dabble with, we are sure that the film will set the cash registers singing. Remember Queen and the thunderous response it received at the box office?
The movie's director Homi released a picture of Arjun Kapoor from the film. Clad in a vest and funky glares, Arjun looks like a bohemian all set to go witch hunting for this Fanny Fernandes along with belle Deepika Padukone. For all those interested, Ranveer Singh plays Deepika's husband in the film.
The first promo of Finding Fanny Fernandes will be out in July while the film will release in September.
Homi Adajania sends out hysterical letter to cast of Deepika Padukone starrer Finding Fanny Fernandes
Homi Adajania gave letters to the cast and crew of his movie Finding Fanny Fernandes, which stars Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur. But don’t assume that he, like Sajid Khan, sent out letters promising the actors that the movie will hit the jackpot at the box office. Whenever Sajid starts a film, he gives letters to his cast welcoming them to the biggest hit of their career.
Homi’s letter to his team was a hilarious one. When asked about it, the director says, “It was a very hard shoot, which we knocked off in 41 days and it was only possible owing to an amazing bunch of people. So, I wrote a letter to thank them. But it’s personal so it won’t make sense to anyone apart from them... Besides it’s full of profanity so you won’t be able to print it.”
Although he wasn’t ready to share the contents, we managed to get our hands on it, thanks to a crew member who shared a copy with us after swearing it to secrecy. Reproduced below enjoy!! Goodbye and thank you, Parsi style!
To the CREW and CAST of Finding Fanny... Nov 15th 2013.
In these last 50-odd days, you could have done anything. You could have:
a) Trekked naked in stilettos to the South Pole.
b) Learned the complex art of living in oxymoronic bliss.
c) Stop the sun from setting.
d) Saved a little-known animal from extinction.
Instead you chose to get sun-f@#ked and flirt with melanoma, abandon loved ones who have probably abandoned you by now, forced fake smiles and formed dodgy friendships (Hmm... wonder who all?) you have no intention of continuing, played bitches to bosses who nuked your self-esteem out of existence.
All for the sake of Finding Fanny.
Just so you could send out a strong message that even mush-brained dysfunctional buffoons are also, apparently, people. People, who deserve 90 minutes of their own little bizarre story.
And all you guys got out of this was irreversible sunburn and a permanent hangover.
You intrepid little guerrillas, you gangsters of love, samurais of selflessness and ninjas of nonsense, words do not apparently fail me to describe how much I love you all for being a part of this.
If someone accidentally misplaced an obese Goan woman called Stefanie with a disastrous thyroid and dumpster-truck stomach, and we had to find that f@#king bitch one more time, I’d do it all over again but only with all of you.
Without even one of you I would never have ever found Fanny the way we did. With sweat and tears, but more importantly booze, some dodgy substances and lots of laughter.
Be happy and laugh loud always.
With more love, respect and gratitude than I can genuinely express.
The ‘Director’ of Finding Fanny
(In case any of you were wondering what the f@#k I was doing on set)
