Talking about the film’s screening at IFFI, Salman Khan said, “IFFI is a very prestigious event and I am happy that Farrey is being screened at it. I have some fond memories of IFFI over the years and with Farrey making it to the esteemed panel it feels like a full circle. I wish the entire team of Farrey the very best and hope the audience enjoys the film.”
Alizeh is Khan’s niece, and daughter of Atul and Alvira Khan Agnihotri.
Speaking about the film, the director said,“Farrey is a reflection of the intricacies between ambition and morality. We've woven a narrative that challenges perceptions and unravels the consequences of choices made in pursuit of success. ‘Farrey’ also holds a special place as it marks the start of Alizeh's cinematic journey, making the IFFI experience even more memorable for her. I hope it resonates with the audience, sparking conversations and leaving a mark on viewers.”
