After enthralling the audience with his kickass comedy Anil Kapoor will now step into the shoes of an aspiring musician in KriArj Entertainment & Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra’s FANNEY KHAN.
While finalizing his look for FANNEY KHAN, it took over 50 hours to get a green signal for his salt-pepper look.
Anil Kapoor went all out to get his look just right for FANNEY KHAN and after several creative discussions with the makers of the film finally zeroed in on the look. The star visited a popular salon in the suburbs for 5 days at a stretch, clocking in over 10 hours each day to work just on his hair.
Since Anil Kapoor had to essay the role of the lovably flawed and rough around the edges Fanney Khan, the star also had to go lean for his look. What's more is that since he recently suffered from an ankle injury, he had to incorporate alternative forms of workouts into his regular fitness regime and took over 4 weeks to achieve the desired results.
Praising Anil’s enthusiasm and dedication producer Arjun N.Kapoor said, “Anil Kapoor plays a character who celebrates the extraordinary in the ordinary and hence looking the part was extremely crucial. He managed to pull it off beautifully and continues to inspire all of us with his dedication and passion".
While Bhushan Kumar added, "Anil Kapoor is an actor par excellence who gives his 200 percent to any character he portrays. The love and passion he has for films are visible in the time he has invested to get his look right and the dedication he has shown to get the perfect physique."
This makes us more excited for this film which reunites Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil after 17 long years. Directed by Atul Majrekar, FANNEY KHAN also stars Rajkummar Rao.
