‘Finding Fanny’ director Homi Adajania and the film’s co-producers are thrilled that the entertainer is lined up for screening at the Busan International Film Festival next month. They think it’s a “perfect” window for the movie to reach a foreign audience.
An English language Indian quirky comedy, the multi-starrer, which features veterans like Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur as well as young talents like Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, will have its Korean premiere at the fest.
“It feels great,” co-producer Dinesh Vijan, said in a statement.
“Busan is fast emerging as one of the more serious and hugely respected international film festivals. It gives ‘Finding Fanny’ perfect exposure to a widespread international audience,” added Vijan.
