Homi Adajania has succeeded in putting together an intriguing star cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Boman Irani, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor in his English film titled, Finding Fanny. According to Adajania, "The film is set in a Goan village that the world has forgotten about. Nothing of any relevance happens here and the people, well, they just exist... It is a hilarious tale of how inane conversation amongst the villagers, send five oddballs to go in search of a woman called Stefaine Fernandez (Fanny), but nobody knows whether she's alive or dead or just a figment of someone's imagination. It's quite a bizarre, melancholic but very comical story," said Adajania.

This will be the director's third film, after the 2006, Being Cyrus, also an English language film, which starred Saif Ali Khan and Dimple Kapadia and the successful Cocktail. Adajania is presently working on the script. Finding Fanny. will be produced by Saif and Dinesh Vijan's lluminati Films.
