Fanney Khan’s new song Acche Din was released on Thursday. After the first two songs which were basically rehashes, this is the first original shared by the makers from the film. Also, if the first two songs were about the desi pop star played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, this has Anil Kapoor’s hapless father in the spotlight.
The song, titled ‘Mere Acche Din Kab Aaege,’ features a glum and defeated Anil, wondering when his life will turn around. The song has been composed and sung by Amit Trivedi with lyrics from Irshad Kamil and sings of the woes of the common man and his crushed dreams.
The previous two songs, Mohobbat and Halka Halka, were both rehashes of popular old songs, Jawan Hai Mohobbat (Anmol Ghadi, 1946) and Ustad Nursrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Yeh Jo Halka Halka Suroor Hai.
Fanney Khan also star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao. It is the story of a father who wishes to see his daughter as a successful pop star. He abducts a high profile celebrity to get the money needed to record his daughter’s first album.
The film is directed by first-time director Atul Manjerekar and releases on August 3.
