He continued, “I have been very fortunate with music in my career. I am grateful to all the music directors, lyricists and playback singers who have given the music for my films like Mr India, 1942 A love story, Taal, and of course now Fanney Khan. All of them have some unforgettable numbers which will stand the test of time. Fanney Khan songs like ‘Tera Jaisa Main hun’ and ‘Achche Din’ are the ones that will stay with you even after 50 years from now.”

A few days back, in an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, director Atul Manjrekar talked about the chemistry between Anil and Rajkummar. He said, more than Raj and Aishwarya’s chemistry, one should look out for the bonding between the film’s two male leads. Validating the point further, Rajkummar said, “I have this man crush on Anil Kapoor. He is the most good looking man I have seen. Also, after working with him in two films, Fanney Khan and Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, I am like in awe of him, his energy, his giving attitude. He is full of heart and there’s nothing impure about him. I have experienced his commitment first hand on the sets.”

Echoing similar thoughts as Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao added, “I think the story, the characters and the way the film is made is phenomenal. I am very proud of the film and the way Atul has handled the story is amazing. The story of the movie is so sweet but it talks about so many other things like body shaming, aspirations, and dreams. Atul has added a pinch of entertainment in it as well. So it tells you so many things but in a light-hearted and a humorous way.”
