A Film by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures, in association with Anil Kapoor Film & Communication Network, Fanney Khan tells the story of an aspiring singer who is unable to realize his dreams because of lack of opportunity. A fan of the old classics, especially Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar, he names his daughter Lata who also aspires to be a singer but refuses to take into her father’s brand of music.

An Impressive Cast

The film also stars Rajkummar Rao in a pivotal role. This will be the first time that the viewers will get to see Rajkummar Rao with Aishwarya Rai. Anil Kapoor as the desperate father willing to do whatever it takes to make his daughter realize her as well as his dreams of becoming a singer-songwriter seem extremely impressive. Divya Dutta plays Anil Kapoor’s wife who is skeptical of her husband’s decision to push their daughter forward.

Trailer Review

Fanney Khan seems to be a heart-warming tale of a middle-class man who works as a taxi driver but doesn’t let his daughter’s dreams of becoming a successful singer-songwriter go to waste. He lost out on his dreams because of lack of a good opportunity more than anything else. With all his hopes pinned on his teenage daughter, he takes her to singing contests wherever possible, despite bleak financial situations. However, the world of singing has become more about looks than talent. His awkward, overweight daughter struggles to ape the modern ways of singing and also tries to dress up in the same manner. But nothing works as she is chided for her weight as well as for her inability to belt out certain tunes. This leaves her wondering if she can ever become like Baby Singh, India’s most famous superstar or simply fade into oblivion, like her father.

The Twist

Determined to fight against all odds, a chance encounter leads Fanney Khan to meet Baby Singh. At the spur of the moment, he decides to kidnap her with the help of Rajkumar Rao. It is then that the story takes a comical turn. Will things go as planned? That seems to form the crux of the story.

The makers have dubbed it a heart-warming yet hilarious journey of a father’s mission to make his daughter’s dreams come true. Presented by Gulshan Kumar, T Series, and Virendra Arora, all eyes are set on the music launch of the film.
