Deepika Padukone-Arjun Kapoor starrer 'Finding Fanny' is in controversy

Film Finding Fanny, one of its kind film which will be released in English and Hindi is now stirring trouble in getting a U/A certification from the censorship board. According to a scene in the film Finding Fanny, Deepak Tandel says ‘I am a virgin’ to Arjun Kapoor and Deepak believes that the word needs to be chopped off. However, Homi Adajania is not happy with this decision and even claimed that when films like Dil Se had Preity Zinta asking Shah Rukh Khan whether he is a virgin and many other films used this word then why is the Censor board stringent with Finding Fanny. Moreover, Deepak also revealed that he has asked director Homi to tone down the scene where Dimple Kapadia’s skirt gets torn.

Two years after the film that hit the box office Cocktail, director Homi Adajania is back with bang and a idiosyncratic misadventure; this time about a dappled crew looking for a postman's lost love through Goa. The Hindi and English versions of Finding Fanny will hit the theatres on September 12, across India and in various 40 international territories, which form the exodus markets targeted by most main stream Bollywood films. The film makers believe that Homi Adajania, the director has made a outstanding global film that will be accepted in any market. "The difference between the two versions is just three-four minutes and not a complete re-edit. This English version will be cut by Nick Moore to cater to that audience," Director Homi Adajania said in a statement."It's the same story but will be told in a way that the firangs understand better," he added.

The English and Hindi versions of Finding Fanny Movie will hit theatres Sep 12. The film Finding Fanny is presented by Fox Star Studios, and there also are plans to set the film out in a separate edited version of Finding Fanny in non-exodus markets – Europe, the US and the Far East - three to four months after its September release. Moore has directed impressive and outgoing films like Wild Child (2008) and Horrid Henry: The Movie (2011) but is better known as the editor of The Full Monty (1997) which bagged him a BAFTA nomination, Notting Hill (1999), About A Boy (2002) and Love Actually (2003).


Finding Fanny is a forthcoming Hindi/English satirical, drama film, written and directed by Homi Adajania and produced by Dinesh Vijan under Maddock Films baner and presented by Fox Star Studios. The film Finding Fanny features Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor in prominent roles. The film is based on an adventurous road trip set in Goa and links and follows the journey of five characters. The film is scheduled for release on 12 September 2014.


Finding Fanny revolves around the main five rather lost and dysfunctional characters that live in the whimsical sleepy village of Pocolim, dwelled deep in the interiors of Goa, India. Pocolim is a village where pointless and stupid conversations are a way of life feeding the life of the people. Nothing ever realistic happens here and the people of Pocolim, well, they just exist for the sake of it. One night, the old postman Ferdie , character played by Naseeruddin Shah, receives a letter that is slipped under his door. He then realizes that it was the letter he had written to the love of his life 46 years ago, Stefanie Fernandes character played by Anjali Patil, asking for her hand to marry her. To his utter shock and dismay, he discovers that had the letter had never been delivered. All these years the post man Ferdie has lived a life of regret, believing that his love Stefanie had rejected him. He then decides to find his beloved Fanny and tell her the truth. The movie Finding Fanny Reviews is a comical story and an off the wall story about a bunch of oddities who venture out to find this girl Stefanie Fernandes (Fanny) and in the process, they discover a unique and strange sense of love and solace amongst each other, and end up seeing a point back to their previously dull and pointless lives.
