Farhan Akhtar is dying to take a break from work. With DON 2 out of his way and taking a very good opening that would ensure that at least a hit status is round the corner, Farhan is managing to breathe easy. As a producer his TALAASH is six months away which means he can now afford to take a break, something that he hasn't done since he faced the camera for ROCK ON.
Informs a friend of the filmmaker/actor, "Farhan hadn't imagined in his wildest of dreams that he would become mighty busy as a filmmaker as well as an actor when he first acted in ROCK ON. It seemed like just a solitary film that he wanted to experiment with and then return to making movies as a producer and director. However that was not the case to be and resultantly, he had to multitask with his various assignments." CHECK OUT: Farhan- DON 2 has the potential to get overly dramatic
This meant that immediately after ROCK ON, he completed LUCK BY CHANCE as well, his second film as an actor. In fact acting bug bit him to such an extent that he went on to score a hat trick of acting assignments with KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK.
"Meanwhile he was also getting his other productions in place along with partner Ritesh Sidhwani. For months at stretch there was no break in sight for him as he started biggies like GAME and ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA. Moreover his directorial assignment DON 2 also started taking shape while Aamir Khan's biggie TALAASH has taken its own time to reach the finishing line. It has been over three years since ROCK ON and Farhan hasn't had time for himself. He is now desperate to give himself and his family some private time which would be away from the world of films," the friend continues.
"While there are productions like TALAASH and ROCK ON 2 taking shape next year, I am busy listening to newer scripts, both as an actor and a filmmaker. I would be taking time to decide on that as I don't want to commit and then have second thoughts later," says Farhan, "Meanwhile, I am taking time off in January and February. It has been ages since I did that."
