Facts about Farhan Akhtar you did not know

Farhan Akhtar, the multi-talented actor-director-singer-lyricist is quite unconventional whether it be his husky voice or his movie choices. With all that talent in a single body, he can be called a production house in himself. Although his portfolio was not so gorgeous like the other actors of the B-town he still managed to create a firm position in the film industry and straight away in our hearts, thanks to his phenomenal skills.

The 43-year-old Farhan was born in Mumbai to scriptwriters Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani. He has won many Filmfare Awards and received praises for his pragmatic roles in movies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Wazir etc, but before Bollywood bestowed him with the limelight, he had to undergo a lot of struggle like every twenty-something guy. Gladly, we have done all the digging for you. So, sit tight and enjoy!


Farhan Akhtar

His father belongs to Lucknow and so he has spent some crucial years of his life in his ancestral house in Lucknow. Farhan admires the old Lakhnawi architecture and not to mention, not-to-be-found anywhere else Tunday kebabs.

Farhan stated in an interview that Mathematics was a nightmare for him. While in the second year, Farhan was kicked out of HR college, Mumbai for short attendance. He was pursuing law there. He didn't even try to complete his graduation later.

Post college, he spent 2 years of his life literally doing nothing. Wondering what did he do? He just watched movies day-in and day-out on VHS. According to him, it was his self-conducted film course. Probably, he wasn't just watching movies, he was studying them.


Farhan Akhtar

His mother was worried about his career. She threatened him to throw him out of the house if he didn't get serious about his life. Guess what he did next? He penned down the blockbuster youth movie 'Dil Chahta Hai'. He considers it to be the turning point in his life.

He made his directorial debut in Bollywood with 'Dil Chahta Hai' in 2001. But he didn't leave Hollywood untouched. He wrote the lyrics for Gurinder Chadha's 'Bride and Prejudice(2004)'. Prior to this, he was assistant director in movies Lamhe(1991) and Himalay Putra(1997).


Farhan Akhtar

Yes! He has a borderline obsessive-compulsive disorder. He gets anxious when stuff around him is unorganized. He feels distracted when the things are not kept in their right places. He also has a phobia for cockroaches.


Farhan with wife Adhuna and daughters Shakya and Akira

Farhan's better half Adhuna Bhabani is seven years older to him and brought up in the UK. They dated for three years before tying the knot in 2000. They are blessed with two lovely daughters- Shakya and Akira. Presently, Adhuna is a successful Bollywood hairstylist. But sadly the couple got divorced in October 2016.


Farhan Akhtar

One of the biggest regrets that he will always have is saying 'No' to a wonderful movie. The role of the lead protagonist in 'Rang De Basanti' was initially offered to him, but he refused to do it. The role was later offered to Aamir Khan only after he declined it.

As compared to other celebrities, Farhan learnt driving a little late when he was 22. While he learnt to ride a bike during the shooting of the movie 'Karthik calling Karthik'. His first car was Fiat which was gifted to him by his father.


Farhan Akhtar

He is UN Women's Goodwill Ambassador. He also attended a United Nation's Conference in New York where he interacted with some of the famous Hollywood actors like Meryl Streep, Chris Marti, Anne Hathway and Dakota Fanning. He also launched the social campaign MARD(Men Against Rape and Discrimination).

Farhan Akhtar is definitely the 'Man of the Millenium'. He is the perfect youth icon to look up to. One thing that can be learned from Farhan Akhtar is 'One can be brilliant on his own term'. I am his die-hard fan and in love with his naturally funny character in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
