#Farhan_Akhtar starrer #The_Fakir_of_Venice will be the opening movie at the 8th Jagran Film Festival, which will start here from July 1.
The gala, to be inaugurated by veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, will be held at the Siri Fort Auditorium, said a statement.
Directed by Anand Surapur and also featuring Annu Kapoor, "The Fakir of Venice" is a drama inspired by the real life experience of filmmaker Homi Adajania of taking a fakir (saint) to Venice.
The film showcases a story of an Indian conman who is hired to find a fakir who can bury himself in sand for an installation art project in Venice. He passes off a poor slum dweller from Mumbai as the real thing, conning the European art world successfully.
