Having exciting time as an actor: Farhan Akhtar
Mumbai: Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who received appreciation for his role in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' last year, today said he was having an exciting time in front of camera and will continue to focus on acting.
The versatile Bollywood personality, who directed and produced films before moving onto acting, will be next seen in 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects'.
The 40-year-old made his acting debut in 2008 with 'Rock On' and went onto feature in films like 'Luck By Chance', 'Karthik Calling Karthik' and 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. His last release, 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', loosely based on the life of flying Sikh Milkha Singh, fetched him critical appreciation and awards.
"I am grateful to receive interesting roles and films. I am enjoying doing them. The next film that I am doing is with Zoya Akhtar (his director-sister) and then a film with Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan by the year-end. For me it is a very exciting time (as an actor)... So focusing on that. I believe there is space for everyone," Farhan said.
He insists he is not looking to compete with the Khans (Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman) in the Hindi film industry.
Farhan is sharing screen space with Vidya Balan in 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects', a romantic comedy directed by Sanket Chaudhary which will hit theatres on February 28.
He will be seen in Zoya Akhtar-directed film alongside Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra. The shooting is likely to begin in May-June.
Farhan and Bachchan will work together in producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra's upcoming movie to be directed by Bejoy Nambiar.
