The makers of Anil Kapoor’s Fanney Khan are promoting the film in a unique manner by asking prominent personalities from the industry to reveal the Fanney Khan in their life.

Actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan are the first one to share who was the real Fanney Khan in their life.

Shah Rukh narrated an incident when he was a struggling actor and Anil touched his heart with his gesture.  He said, “I remember two – four incidents of some people who have showered me with so much love. And coincidentally, the same person is asking me this question. I have told this story to many people.”

“He (Anil Kapoor) was so kind to me… for one or two hours he kept on sitting with me, chatting with me and kept on telling me ‘Tu kar yaar, picture mein kaam kar!’ So, at times like these when you’re trying out, when you’re new, little source of encouragement or apnapan. When you see such a talented, hardworking actor talking with such an open heart to you, so from that day, till today, ‘I love you because you are my Fanney Khan,” said Shah Rukh.

Anil took to his social media and captioned the video, “He is truly one of the kindest actors you will ever meet. That very quality of his makes Shah Rukh a Fanney Khan in my eyes. Thank you for the person that you are and for always being so supportive.”

On the other hand, Aamir Khan said “The kind of energy you (Anil) execute, the never-say-die attitude, the spirit that you have. No matter which role you are playing, no matter which character you are in. When I heard the title of your film, I thought yes, that’s you. Fanney Khan of the industry.”

Anil captioned the video, “Everybody knows that he leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the roles he has to portray simply to entertain the audiences. For me @_aamirkhan you are truly a #FanneyKhan.”

Fanney Khan revolves around the bond between a father and daughter. The movie also has Rajkummar Rao and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
