Led by her undying spirit, Pihu Sand’s big dream to be on big screen is being fulfilled with Fanney Khan. It was not how tough or long the journey is. It was about living her dreams and passion.
Foraying into Bollywood with Fanney Khan, Pihu says she always dreamt of being on the big screen and worked hard to start her journey in the world of cinema.
“I have grown up watching Hindi films and have always dreamt of being on the big screen. There was an undying spirit and passion in me to achieve what I always dreamt through hard work and consistency, no matter how tough or long the journey will be,” Pihu said.
Pihu gained about 20 kg for her role in the film, which is a story about a father who wishes to fulfil his daughter’s dream of becoming a star performer while battling fat shaming.
“There are struggles and low phases in every profession and there are times you doubt yourself, but eventually your decision and love will get you where you want to be. My debut film Fanney Khan sure has opened doors for me but I know I have a long way to go in achieving what I have always wanted,” Pihu said in a statement.
The film directed by Atul Manjrekar also features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who plays a singing sensation, and Rajkummar Rao as her love interest.
Produced by T-Series, Anil Kapoor Films & Communications Network and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures, Fanney Khan is slated for release on August 3.
