Presented by Fox Star Studios, Homi Adajania’s upcoming film, Finding Fanny‘s music was launched this morning at an event in Mumbai. The event saw both Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor playing peek-a-boo with the members of the press before launching the music of the film. Peeking from behind the screens, the first trailer of the music track “Shake Your Bootiya” was revealed. The song is quirky and will amaze you with the doll-house setup. Its catchy tune is sure to have it featured on every club’s playlist. The song radiates a happy and fun vibe which is sure to get you shaking your bootiyaa. The cast of the movie includes Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur, and you get to see all of them shaking their bootiya (well, it certainly looks like them). The trailer of the song was played twice to get the press into the groove.
Shortly after the music launch, Deepika and Arjun ended their peek-a-boo game and made their much-awaited appearance, with the shutterbugs going gaga over both, the diva and the hunk. The duo sat down after posing for pictures and answered questions from the press. Deepika explained her role in the movie as Angie, the girl-next-door and Arjun who is cast as Savio, a character much like himself. On being asked to explain ‘Bootiya’ Arjun was kind enough to stand up and show what it means, and how the term was apt for the song “when you dance, you have to shake your legs and hands, and you HAVE to shake your bootiya”. The film has just two songs, the title track “Finding Fanny” and “Shake Your Bootiya”.
Arjun shared how honored he was to have been given the opportunity to work with legendary actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia, and how much he learnt from them during the filming. Although this was Deepika and Arjun’s first movie together their excitement was pretty palpable. Deepika also revealed her secret desire to work as an assistant director. She was quoted saying that, “this is an appeal to the directors to hire me as an assistant director, I would love to work in the production team and be on the other side of the camera”. Finding Fanny is scheduled to release on September 12.
