Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor will play an aspiring musician in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s Fanney Khan that also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Even as Anil shared his first look from the film and tagged it as ‘50 shades of black and grey’, we have learnt that it took over 50 hours to finalise Anil’s salt-and-pepper look for the film.Directed by Atul Majrekar, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao and Divya Dutta.

After several discussions with the makers of the film, the Dil Dhadakne Do star visited a popular salon in Mumbai suburb for continuously five days and spent over 10 hours each day before the look was finally zeroed in.

Anil Kapoor essays the role of the lovably flawed and rough-around-the-edges Fanney Khan and has also gone lean for his look. Sources close to the actor claim he incorporated alternative forms of workouts because of an ankle injury and it took him over a month to achieve the desired results.

Producer of Fanney Khan, Arjun N Kapoor said in a press release, “ Anil Kapoor plays a character who celebrates the extraordinary in the ordinary and hence looking the part was extremely crucial. He managed to pull it off beautifully and continues to inspire all of us with his dedication and passion”.

”Anil Kapoor is an actor par excellence who gives his 200 percent to any character he portrays. The love and passion he has for films is visible in the time he has invested to get his look right and the dedication he has shown to get the perfect physique,” Bhushan Kumar added.
