Farhan Akhtar who is known to do hatke films is back again with his next film The Fakir of Venice. Going by the title one can be sure that this film is not going to be a usual one. Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor will be sharing screen space for the first time, that too in a unconventional roles. Directed by Anand Surapur, their latest movie’s first look is out.
In the first look,While Kapoor is seen in the garb of a saint wearing saffron robes, a rudraksh mala and an indecipherable expression on his face, Farhan Akhtar is sporting jeans and a saffron kurta, and seems to be looking at Kapoor and whistling. The duo are sitting in front of two people in what appears to be a house; these people are probably their clients.
The subtitle of the film is, “Watch the con unfold from Mumbai to Venice.”
Directed by Anand Surapur and produced by Punit Desai (October Films), the film also stars Kamal Sidhu, Italian actress Valentina Carnelutti and German actor Mathieu Carriere.
In the movie, Farhan, as a production executive, gets an unusual assignment to find an Indian holy saint who could stay under sand with only his hands visible outside. The movie has been shot in Mumbai, Banaras, Ladakh and Venice.
Both Farhan and Annu are teaming up for the first time. A fresh duo!
