If there was an epitome of versatility in the B-Town, it could well be Farhan Akhtar. While it is a known fact that the man continues to juggle many hats, right from an actor to a director to a producer and even a singer and lyricist, Farhan is also someone who has made swift moves from one genre of film to another, right from ROCK ON to BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG.
Now that he would next be seen in a domestic comedy, SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS, it is time for him to wear a different hat altogether, something that he is proud of.
'I really feel that I have been lucky to have worked in certain interesting films and played varied roles. To have been allowed to do this without any kind of background or training is something that I cherish,' says Farhan who made his directorial debut with DIL CHAHTA HAI and may soon begin his next, 'To have that kind of opportunity and to be accepted for that, it is growth in itself. Now when audiences too have been recognizing that, I am happy that they are seeing me do different things.'
2013 has been particularly interesting for Farhan, what with his BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG crossing the 100 crore mark and FUKREY, a production with Ritesh Sidhwani, turning out to be a surprise hit as well.
'I like picking on something that is a little more difficult and challenging than my last work. It was amazing to be playing Milkha Singh in case of BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG,' says Farhan who is thrilled to be playing the part of a dad in SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS.
Farhan is also happy about the fact that genre of each of the films done by him has been different in true terms.
'Whether it is ROCK ON or LUCK BY CHANCE or KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK or ZINDAGI NAA MILEGI DOBARA or BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG or SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS, I genuinely believe that each of these films is different from each other. That's the way I like it' says Farhan.
Produced by Pritish Nandy Communications and Balaji Motion Pictures, SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS is directed by Saket Chowdhary and releases all over on 28th February.
