It`s an English language “offbeat” entertainer; made by an Indian director with three veteran and two young stars of Bollywood, and topped with one promotional Hindi song – that`s Homi Adajania`s `Finding Fanny`. Arjun Kapoor, who plays one of the five “oddballs” in the movie, believes Indian audiences are ready for such content.
“I was scared and apprehensive to begin with, but as the journey went on, I was more and more happy that I made the brave choice of doing an English film, which is offbeat,” Arjun told IANS during a tete-a-tete here.
Well, Arjun “never saw it as an offbeat film”!
“For me, it`s a film which the country is ready to watch, and the fact that the trailer has received an overwhelming response is an example that people are willing to watch such content,” he said of the over two million views that the `Finding Fanny` trailer garnered within two days of hitting online video sharing platform YouTube.
Arjun is a happy and content young man.
At 29, the son of veteran film producer BoneyKapoor has four distinct movies behind him. Starting with the 2012 movie `Ishaqzaade`, in which he sported a rough and rebellious look as Parma, he pulled off a double role in `Aurangzeb`, essayed the hot-headed Bala in `Gunday`, and the nerdy yet affable boy-in-love Krish in “2 States”.
Arjun says he was surprised when Adajania, the man behind English language film `Being Cyrus` and the Bollywood saga `Cocktail`, considered him for the role of SavioD`Gama in `Finding Fanny`, especially after watching the actor`s work in `Ishaqzaade`.
