Words fall short when one tries to sit back and think of all the contributions of Farhan Akhtar towards Bollywood. He is an actor, producer, director, singer as well as a musician! He excels in each of these fields, yes, pun intended! He is celebrating his birthday today and on this day, we bring you some of his best characters as an actor!
1. Rock On
If there is one film that people should watch to know what a powerhouse Farhan is, then that is Abhishek Kapoor’s Rock On!! He stars in the film as a musician and has also voiced all the songs he has sung!
2. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!
This has to be one of the toughest films of the actor’s career. The film is a biopic based on international sporting icon Milkha Singh. People were amazed at what lengths the actor went through to portray the character in the most accurate manner.
3. The Sky Is Pink
The film dealt with a heavy subject surrounding the loss of a loved one. He played an intense role of a father in the film who will leave no stone unturned to give his daughter not a large but surely a meaningful life.
4. Dil Dhadakne Do
He had a very interesting character play in this light-hearted comedy-drama. Although he appeared in the second half of the film, he only needed one sequence where he talked about women empowerment to make his role speak volumes.
5. Kartik Calling Kartik
This was one of the very first psychological thrillers to come out of India. The script was extremely original and fresh and focussed on a guy named Kartik who is extremely introverted and lives a regular life. He suddenly gets a call one day and the person identifies as none other than Kartik himself leaving the former very freaked out and confused. No one could have pulled this character better than Farhan and it an underrated gem.
