The curious case of Farhan Akhtar and The Fakir of Venice. Why isn't the actor promoting his film?

Farhan Akhar will be seen in The Fakir of Venice along with Annu Kapoor. But why isn't he promoting the film?

Seems like Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar is not in any mood to promote his next The Fakir of Venice. While the actor promoted his last released Rock On 2 in full swing with lots of concerts, him not promoting his upcoming film has raised eyebrows. And the reason behind the same is still a mystery.

Reportedly, the film got stuck due to some issue, and now is ready to release after the problem has been resolved. And now the rumors are rife that, the makers have been trying to get in touch with the actor but they haven’t received any reply from him.

The film is scheduled for release next month, and soon before this, the makers have recently unveiled its first look. The first look featured Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor in an uber cool avatar and it must be noted the duo looked superb together.

Reportedly, the film will see Farhan as a production executive, who gets an unusual assignment to find an Indian holy saint. The drama that unfolds in this journey forms the crux of the film.
