Frustrated at the number of harassment cases against women

Film-maker, writer, actor and also an amazing singer who needs no introduction, Farhan Akhtar in an interview with Indiatimes told them that he really feels frustrated when he sees so many sexual harassment cases taking place every day. The actor who is associated with MARD says that 2017 has been a heavy year for all of us.

 “The cases of violence against women is still high. I feel really frustrated about it but it has encouraged me in some way and we will be working more to stop violence against women in the society.”

He also spoke about his film ‘Fukrey Returns’. He said it has double the dose of masti, fun, and comedy than the first one had. He also wished the entire cast of the film.

“It’s even funnier than the first one and I am proud of the entire team. We are expecting a lot more from it this time. I wish everyone all the best.”

” I believe that engaging people is most important for an actor along with celebrating and enjoying what you do,” adds Farhan.

We asked Farhan if it is ‘Mushkil hee nahi namumkin to direct Don 3.’ Farhan laughed and replied,“Nothing like it. We are working on many ideas for Don 3 and soon will be giving out details of the same.”

While talking about the best moment in his life, Farhan said, ” The closest moment has been the birth of my two kids and they gave life a new meaning.” He also told us that spending time with his daughter is the best thing he has done in 2017.

Farhan also spoke about love and said, “It is unconditional acceptance for a person or a passion for something and I believe in it.” However, he chose not to answer if he would want to give marriage a second chance.

Farhan spoke about the Hritik-Kangna controversy and said, “The way everything was portrayed was wrong. People got to see just one side of the story where no facts were involved. I believe that was wrong.” 

To make the chit-chat a little fun, we played rapid fire with the Rock On star and all the answers were funny. 

Farhan used his wit and humour to answer all these questions. He cleverly said, ” I love the role of a singer,” when given a choice between acting and singing. He also told us that he loves food and chose– ‘Ke-Abs’ when asked to decide between abs and no abs. We asked him for one thing he cannot live without and he cleverly said ‘Oxygen’.

“I feel that we live in a world full of stress and fitness is the only way to handle it. Staying fit is really important to me. One should stay fit not just for himself but also for the family and loved ones,” Farhan said while speaking about health and fitness. 

Farhan’s upcoming production venture titled 3 Storeys, starring Sharman Joshi Renuka Shahane and Masumeh Makhija is set to release February 16, 2018.
