The producer-actor-director recently made an appearance on Preity Zinta’s chat show and we must say that the two had quite a ‘dhamaal’ time together
Farhan Akhtar was at his candid best on the Preity Zinta show recently and the duo discussed virtually everything, right from their Dil Chahta Hai days to how clueless Farhan was during his college-going phase. This once-upon-a-time-ambitionless guy never really thought that he would some day make quite a mark in B-town, he said. Farhan also admitted that he would like try his hand at comedy, as a director. Now we really don’t know if Farhan will be able to match the wavelength of the masses. As a director, Farhan very strategically makes movies that appeal to the mass audience, but when it comes to his personal favourites, wethinks he likes humour that’s a li’l quirky and sarcastic, topped with a tinge of youthful zaniness. Choosing to act in movies like Rock On and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara proves that Akhtar likes to keep an arm’s length from anything that’s slapstick and senseless. Now this makes us all the more confused, and we wonder if Akhtar will be able to do justice to comedy. On one hand he’s known to be an experienced director who knows how to play his cards right and on the other hand, there’s this hopeful filmmaker who wants to put on his creative hat and make the most of his stint in B-town. Whatever you do Farhan, we (your true fans) will be waiting with bated breath!
