“We are not ignoring girls. We have always had very strong women characters in all our films… I’m a boy so it was easier for me to think from a boy’s point of view. I do like this idea of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ girl sequel. It’s an idea worth exploring,” Farhan said. Farhan brought in a fresh breeze of air into Indian cinema with his new way of storytelling through a heart-warming story of friends with ‘Dil Chahta Hai’.
Talking about the whole idea of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ sequel, Farhan said: “This was something Alia (Bhatt) had mentioned in an interview, where she said I am going to call Farhan and tell him to make a sequel. I was like it would be fun… it sounds like a nice idea let me think about it.”
“I do think it’s a good idea. I do think there is a potential for a sequel. I think that it would be a nice place to explore,” he added. For now, Farhan is looking forward to ‘Rock On 2’, which released on Friday.
In fact, Farhan Akhtar in the latest episode of a talk show, when host Kamal Sidhu unveiled a picture of Farhan from his shoot for Daboo Ratnani’s calendar for this year, Farhan recalled the shooting days, read a statement.
“This was last year while shooting ‘Rock On 2’ when we came back from Shillong. This is November or December of last year, it was for Daboo’s calendar which was this year. There’s a lot of diet that’s required to even get into shape, for the shot, in particular,” Farhan said.
“I don’t like that kind of body at all. I much prefer a body when you wear clothes, you don’t like you really have much of a physique going on below it”. He said he was feeling conscious while doing the shoot because the photographer wanted the show on the side of a road because he liked a certain wall. Kamal then went on to ask him if he was shy in general.
Farhan said: “It took Daboo about six years of trying to convince me to do a shot for him without my T-shirt on. Every single time he would say to do it, I would always come and put something on. I am like, ‘I can’t, I don’t want to do it.'”
