CHECK OUT: Farhan Akhtar's FUKREY trailer to be launched in college canteen

It seems now Farhan too is before the wind! Since the forthcoming venture FUKREY, produced by Farhan and Ritesh highlights the desire of four guys of their wild life of college days, Farhan & Ritesh wanted to underline the college element, which is about bunking lectures, spending time in canteen, having Cutting Chai and Samosa, in the movie. Hence the duo, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, decided upon to have a grand trailer launch in a Town college, and yet serve only Samosa and Cutting Chai to their guest.

Even though the college will not be operational while the event will be going on, the Excel team has got special permissions from college authorities to keep the canteen functional.

The film's name is FUKREY, which essentially means 'wella or jobless'... hanging out in college canteen is a key aspect they want to recreate. The idea of the launch of the movie in a canteen gave the correct vibe of the movie.

While the movie is not a campus film, college is at the heart of the movie, FUKREY!

The trailer will be launched by Farhan Akhtar , Ritesh Sidhwani along with the director of the movie Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and the four Star cast.
