When you have poetry and art in your veins, being multitalented might seem to be destiny’s gift. But Farhan Akhtar is beyond that. His talent is so unsurmountable and multifaceted that it may take another life to unfold all of them.
Starting out as an assistant to Yash Chopra way back in 1991 until his own directorial debut Dil Chahta Hai came in 2001 , Bollywood’s ‘one-man army’ Farhan Akhtar’s journey has been epic. It was in Rock On (2008) that he showed us his acting prowess and now, he’s all geared up with its sequel. Here’s a look back to his mesmerizing voices that tell us so much about love, life, success and happiness!
When he told us what it takes to live life king size!!
When he showed us why marriages are difficult!!
When he told us that hard work is all that matters for a successful career!!
When he told us why heartaches are redundant!!
When he made it clear what equal rights actually mean!!
When he wanted to awaken the long lost talent his protégé was hiding!!
The director, screenwriter, lyricist, singer, actor and television host (remember Oye! It’s Friday) has no stopping yet, and has also actively propagated the issues on Women Empowerment like no other, on-screen and off-screen! His social campaign ‘Men Against Rape and Discrimination’ is a signature of his highly liberal and intellectual values.
A believer of equal rights and undeterred righteousness, he has supported Karan Johar too in his tryst with non-ruling right-wing political groups. This goes on to show why we need more people like him to raise their voices.
For now, it’s all rock n’ roll with Farhan as we’re given a chance to see him foster and uncover the hidden talent of his protégé played by Shraddha Kapoor! Let’s wish him success on this wonderful depiction of a woman’s solo journey in music and relive the sound of Magic!
