The first look poster of Farhan Akhtar’s upcoming film “The Fakir Of Venice” is out. The film is a black comedy drama film which will release in both English and Hindi languages. The film is inspired from a real life event experienced by filmmaker Homi Adajania known for films “Cocktail” and “Finding Fanny”. The film is about a man who is hired to find a Fakir who can bury himself in sand for an installation art project in Venice.
The first look poster shows city of Venice and we can see whole city along with a river. It also shows hands of a man joint together, it seems he is praying for something or thanking god for something. There are so many bands on the arms which are shown in the poster and all seems religious. Also it has a tag line “Watch The Con Unfold From Mumbai to Venice”.
The film is directed by Anand Surapur, he has co-produced it along with Punit Desai. It stars Farhan Akhtar, Annu Kapoor, Kamal Sidhu in prominent roles. The release date of the film is not yet finalised but it is expected to release in the mid of the year 2017.
