Farhan Akhtar talks about his next Fukrey
Call it co-incidence but almost all of Farhan Akhtar's ventures, be it the ones hes starred in or the ones he's made, have revolved around bromances and male bonding. The actor-director insists though, that this is merely a co-incidence and that it's the script that draws him to a film initially.
"I have been asked this a lot. I have wondered why no one asks this question to someone who only makes love stories or love triangles. Why are only male bonding films singled out?" said Akhtar.
Farhan spoke Friday evening at the first look launch of Fukrey, which he has co-produced with Ritesh Sidhwani.
Sidhwani also said it was not a conscious decision to make films only on male bonding.
"All the stories had different male bonding. This is different than those as well. The story attracts you. Not that it is only on male bonding," he said.
Asked why he is not a part of the film himself, Akhtar said: "It is important to cast people who are right for the roles. Given the age and personality (of the characters), they work well with the actors cast. It is important to stay true to that."
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, the film stars Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, Ali Fazal, Richa Chadda, Vishakha Singh and southern actress Priya Anand, Fukrey releases 14 June 2013.
