…The makings of the hilarious, yet thought provoking and moving film Fanney Khan.
The film follows Prashant Sharma, a family man, who in his younger days, dreamt of becoming a singer and songwriter. His almost dead dream finds a new life with the birth of his daughter, who he ambitiously names Lata.
Pinning his hopes on his teenage daughter, he takes her to singing contests where the awkward and overweight girl struggles to belt out a tune, leaving one wondering if she really has the talent to be a star singer.
In a chance meeting while job hunting, Prashant runs into Baby Singh, India’s biggest popstar. The story takes a comical turn when Prashant in the spur of the moment decides to kidnap her. His ransom demand – Lata to be heard by the whole country in the most popular music show – LIVE- else he will kill the pop star.
Will things go as planned? Is Lata really talented enough to deserve to be a star? And most importantly, will the show go on? Told in a most hilarious and heart-warming way, the film tells us how far a father would go to make his daughter’s dream come true.
