The stories that Farhan Akhtar has brought to life as a director and the characters that he has delivered as an actor have made place in our hearts like no other.
Undoubtedly there are really fine stories and characters that get churned every single day but only few to stick with us and give us such a wholesome experience that every time we see it feels like the first time and when we think about such stories the first name that comes in our mind is none other than Farhan Akhtar.
The stories that Farhan has brought to life as a director and the characters that he has delivered as an actor have made place in our hearts like no other.
Some of the best ones of his characters are, the poet in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which still resonate with us and we can always engage with it, the next one is Milkha Singh from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag where the actor shared a story so beautiful that every viewer would be etched with their screens and feel every emotion. The wanderer in Dil Dhakakne Do in Rock On which is all about music an unrecognised band and so much more.
Some of his directorial hits include Dil Chahta Hai - yet another classic which resonates with even today and Lakshya from 2004 which is all about the army their stories, sacrifices and everything else.
Farhan, be it donning the director's hat, a wanderer, or a poet ensures that his content has always been extremely engaging and authentic and his stories have always stayed with us, refreshing our minds and always giving us a first time viewing experience no matter how many times we see the films.
On the work front, Farhan Akhtar will be seen next in another sports drama film titled Toofaan. The film is produced by Excel Entertainment and directed by Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra.
