Actor Anil Kapoor, who is currently shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Fanney Khan, has adopted a no-phone policy on the film's set so that he doesn't get distracted, reports mid-day. "Anil Kapoor has not been carrying his phone to the sets since he wants to be completely focussed on his character. He feels that a good script, a good role and above all, a good team makes all the difference. And he has got that combination in this film," a source said. Fanney Khanstars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan with Anil Kapoor, who plays an aspiring singer. The film went on floors last month.
For Anil Kapoor, 60, the no-phone policy was a conscious decision. "Not carrying cell phones was a conscious decision so that I don't get distracted for even a second. Every character requires the same amount of commitment and that is what I am doing with this one," he told mid-day.
It's a widely known fact that Sanjay Leela Bhansali forbids his entire team from using their cellphones on the sets of his films. This came after a few images from Ram Leela, featuring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Kapoor were leaked.
Fanney Khan marks Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's third collaboration. The actors have previously worked together in Taal and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. Of the cast, Mr Mehra earlier said, "We have a great cast and it is a dream film for me. The music is by Amit Trivedi and Irshad Kamil and I am absolutely dawning a producer's hat with such a wonderful team," he said." Actor Rajkummar Rao joined the cast earlier this week.
Fanney Khan is believed to be a remake of Dutch film Everybody's Famous and also tackle body-shaming issues.
Anil Kapoor was last seen in Mubarakan, co-starring nephew Arjun Kapoor.
