The above sounds like as great a story as can be written for a comedy movie. Add to that the amazing cast of the movie and come 3rd August, we are waiting for a top notch comedy to blow our minds away.

The trailer also has plenty of emotions and does not allow the comedy aspect to sabotage the struggles of a father or the daughter. Aishwarya rai looks simply gorgeous. It’s amazing how she manages to keep looking this good over the years. Rajkumar Rao is good as good-guy-lousy-kidnapper-lover boy. Anil Kapoor shows why he remains one of the finest actors in the industry of all times.

In this crowd of seasoned actors, debutant Pihu Sand holds her own. She is perfect as the awkward overweight teenagers that marches ahead to achieve her and her father’s dreams. 

The trailer also gives up a touch of the period as it take us back in time to show the struggling days of Fanney Khan. We hope to see more of that in the movie.
