Fox Star Studios has partnered with Dinesh Vijan and Saif Ali Khan‘s Illuminati films, to present Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes starring Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur.
Set in Goa, Finding Fanny Fernandes 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 Fernandes comes on the strong back of illuminati Films and Homi’s last outing, the super-hit film Cocktail.
“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 Fernandes is really very special to me,” said Homi.
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 Fernandes. 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 Fernandes 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.”
Finding Fanny Fernandes will be released worldwide on July 04, 2014.
