My strength is writing and direction: Farhan Akhtar


Farhan-AkhtarActor Farhan Akhtar says though he is presently enjoying acting, his real potential lies in writing and directing films.

Before venturing into acting, Farhan, 40, directed, produced and wrote films.

“I wanted to be associated with films, my strengths were in writing and direction. When I did films like `DilChahtaHai`, `Lakshya` and `Don`, I was working closely with actors. I felt I should try my hands in acting as I would learn lot of things as a director,” Farhan said at a promotional event of his upcoming film `ShaadiKe Side
Effects` last evening.

“I am happy to be acting in films. I did `Rock On`. The experience was good and I explored it further. I don`t think about what people think about me, like taking me seriously or not. My focus is to continue doing good work. I am thankful to audience for the acceptance and support they have shown over the years,” he said.

Post the success of `BhaagMilkhaBhaag`, the perception of people towards Farhan has changed and he is grateful for it.

“I am thankful that everyone`s work in this film was appreciated by the audience and the film fraternity. We are very happy that people have recognised our hard work. If people have some kind of anticipation from me, from my films, it reminds me to stay focused on my work and making right choices. It encourages me further,” Farhan said.
Farhan has acted in both solo hero and multi-starrer films and he is fine doing any kind of film.

“Wherever my part is adding to the overall film I will do it. As long as the script is good and my part is interesting, I am glad to do that film. I have no problem working with anyone. I want to go good films,” he said.
