Farhan Akhtar, whose favourite pastime as is known, solving crosswords in one of the popular financial daily, has now, we hear garnered a novel passion. The filmmaker-turned-actor has taken to solving the Rubik's cube for his role in KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK. He has become so passionate about it that he solves it wherever he goes be it parties, shoots or meetings.
Farhan's character in the film is apparently shown to be solving Rubik's cube throughout the film. For one scene, he was even required to be shown solving the game in one go. Since he is known to be a method actor and a perfectionist who believes in going through his paces beforehand, he began learning to unlock the puzzle much before the film hit the floors. So obsessed was he about getting his shot right that he tagged the cube along with him everywhere and practiced it in his free time - in his car, at theatres or even in his office.
And very soon, he has become such an expert at it that he now throws challenges at others to beat him at it. So are you guys ready?
