Nick Moore, the editor of Hollywood films like ‘Notting Hill’ and ‘Love Actually’, has been roped in to edit the international version of Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor-starrer ‘Finding Fanny’.

Moore will edit the movie for its release in non-diaspora markets. The film, directed by Homi Adajania, will be released in US, Europe and far East in screens, where no other Indian movie has ever been released.

The Hindi and English versions of ‘Finding Fanny’ will open in theatres on September 12, across India and in 40 international territories, which form the diaspora markets.

“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,” Homi said.

The makers also plan to release a separate edited version of the film in non-diaspora markets three-four months after its September release.

“It’s the same story but will be told in a way that the foreigners understand better,” Homi said.

Moore has also directed films like ‘Wild Child’ (2008) and ‘Horrid Henry: The Movie’ (2011).

‘Finding Fanny’, which also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur in prominent roles, is based on a road trip set in Goa and follows the journey of five
characters.
