Anil Kapoor, who is all set to feature in the upcoming musical drama Fanney Khan, especially learnt to play trumpet for his role in the film, reports mid-day. During a media interaction, Anil, who plays a musician in the film, revealed that in order to make his character perfect, he took piano lessons from Ramesh Kumar Gurung. He told mid-day: "The trumpet is an integral part of my character in the film. My character, Fanney, plays it when he is sad or happy. So I had to make it look real. I was excited to learn a new instrument and took lessons from Ramesh Kumar Gurung. It was challenging to emote while using the instrument." He even talked about how music has played a vital role in his career and added, "Music has played an integral part in my career. I understood melody and rhythm through the characters I have played."
