Deepika Padukone-Arjun Kapoor's FINDING FANNY to release on July 4, 2014

By Glamsham Editorial

Leading production and distribution house, Fox Star Studios has partnered with Dinesh Vijan-Saif Ali Khan's Illuminati films, to present Homi Adajania's quirky comedy FINDING FANNY. This ensemble film brings Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, together for the first time, ably backed by cinema stalwarts Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur.

Set in Goa, FINDING FANNY is a hilarious and heartwarming bilingual film about a man's search for his childhood love, Stefanie (Fanny) Fernandes, and how a group of dysfunctional characters go on a road trip with him to find her. The journey, riddled with a funny chain of events and life changing moments that impact everyone involved, forms the crux of the film.

FINDING FANNY comes on the strong back of Illuminati Films and Homi's last outing, the super-hit film COCKTAIL. Producer Dinesh Vijan adds, "We are excited about the way the film is shaping up. Homi has a talent for cinematic storytelling, giving us diverse stories be it a BEING CYRUS or COCKTAIL and now we have a gem of a film in FINDING FANNY. We are proud to add this wonderful, warm, quirky story to our stable. We are looking forward to partnering with Fox Star Studios, and hope to reach out to a wide audience globally."

Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, adds, "FINDING FANNY is a very important addition to our exciting line-up for 2014, and we are glad to have partnered with Dinesh and Saif on this film. We believe in Homi's cinema and its ability to connect universally. We were blown away by the script and the film has lined up some of India's most exciting talent. We are committed to releasing it across the globe."

When asked about his third outing, Homi says, "I was offered some big "COCKTAIL-type" films after the success of it, but I really wanted to work on my own material and not just direct something for money. FINDING FANNY is really very special to me. Naseer and Dimple are a riot to work with. Pankaj is incredible. Deepika amazes me with her constant growth as an actor and Arjun was a revelation surpassing my expectations. The performances have been selfless and fantastic. We all worked very hard but more importantly we had a blast and I promise you'll see this on screen."

FINDING FANNY will be released worldwide on July 4th 2014.
