Did you know FANNEY KHAN : Anil Kapoor gave a playback three decades ago!!

As the trailer of FANNEY KHAN is making all the noise, especially for its ode to the legendary Lata Mangeshkar (lovingly referred as ’Didi’ - elder sister), a blast from a past doubles our joy.

Anil Kapoor as a singer in this Om Prakash Mehra’s film is the talk of the town and everybody is awed by Anil Kapoor’s ‘jhakas’ tribute to the legendary Mohammed Rafi and Indian Elvis Presley the one and only Shammi Kapoor in the first look.

And now we have found that Anil Kapoor, the lovable Munna of TEZAAB, has given a play back in this cult comedy 32 years ago…

Hmmm!!. The movie was Basu Chatterjee’s 1986 comedy CHAMELI KI SHAADI starring Anil Kapoor and Amrita Singh with Amjad Khan in an unforgettable role. The movie later gained ‘cult’ status and not many are aware that Anil Kapoor gave the playback for the movie’s title song under Kalyanji Anandji’s music.

We hear that Anil Kapoor will be trying his hand in serious singing in FANNEY KHAN and the buzz is strong that he has done ‘riyaaz’ (training/preparations) for the same.

It is said that Anil Kapoor will lend his voice for a couple of numbers. We are sure that Anil Kapoor who is known for getting into the skin of the character and adapt every nuance to perfection will do a brilliant job.

Let’s hear how he sounded 32 years back when he gave the playback for CHAMELI KI SHAADI.
