Farhan AkhtarIt's a week since little Akira was born and father Farhan Akhtar is still in a daze.

"It still hasn't sunk in. But, yes, nothing can compare with or describe the feeling of fatherhood," Farhan told IANS.

"I'm now waiting to take my wife Adhuna home so that my elder daughter Shakiya won't feel left out. God knows she's been looking forward to mothering her sibling. But visiting hours being what they are, Shakiya has hardly had time with her new sister. When we get home we'll certainly have a party."

Akira, which means 'anchor', shares her first name with the legendary Japanese director.

"Let's hope my Akira will be as talented as Akira Kurosoawa, if not as famous."

Children in one way or another occupy Farhan's mind at the moment. Besides the bundle of joy at home, Farhan is also involved creatively with young thoughts and dreams.

His next directorial undertaking "Voice From The Sky" will have two boys in the principal lead.

"In fact," reveals Farhan, "there will be 12-13 kids and I want to cast them just right. I'm in the process of looking at all the DVD and visual media I can lay my hands on to find the right kids."

"Voice From The Sky", to be set near Kolkata, will be shot towards the end of the year.

"I want to shoot it in the November light. It's a project that I could've made right after 'Lakshya' if I hadn't decided to do 'Don' right away."
