  • 'Fanney Khan' teaser is out and it revolves around the life of Anil Kapoor's character
  • The term 'Fanney Khan' is usually referred to an entertainer or a performer

The teaser of much talked about film 'Fanney Khan' is out and by the looks of it, the film directed by Atul Manjrekar has something different to offer.

The 57 second teaser begins with the voice of a crowd cheering for ‘Fanney Khan’ and the spotlight shifts on the titular character, played by Anil Kapoor. This is followed by Rajkummar Rao’s voice over, explaining the term ‘Fanney Khan’. The term is usually referred to an entertainer, performer or for that matter anybody with whom people can have fun.

The visuals meanwhile give a glimpse of the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who will be playing a celebrity and a famous performer known for her singing and dancing skills.

The teaser then brings you to a visibly old Anil Kapoor, sitting on the terrace of a building overlooking skyscrapers. The actor is seen playing the trumpet very passionately.

The story is about a person (Anil Kapoor) who has changed the concept of ‘Fanney Khan'. The ‘Ram-Lakhan’ actor is seen sitting on the terrace with a musical instrument could imply that he is the man with unfulfilled dreams.

Also, the first shot and the last shot of the trailer are very contrasting in nature. While, the first shot shows Anil Kapoor on the stage enjoying the limelight, and the final one has him dressed in home clothes, playing the trumpet on the terrace. There could be two possibilities, he was once a star whos dreams shattered, or an aspiring artist whose dreams were never fulfilled. 

It is the first time that Rajkummar Rao, Anil Kapoor, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen together on screen with a fresh story. Debutante Pihu sand will be playing Anil Kapoor's daughter in the film and Divya Dutta will be playing Anil Kapoor's wife in the film. 

The poster of the film was released two days ago, after a lot of controversy surrounding the fallout between the producers of the film. However, the film is on track now and is scheduled to release on August 3. The film is being directed by debutante Atul Manjrekar and produced by  Anil Kapoor, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Bhushan Kumar and  Krishna Kumar.
