Rock on!! Farhan Akhtar
Why does Farhan Akhtar Rock on!
Farhan Akhtar is a guy who has excelled in everything that he has done. From his directorial debut - "Dil Chahta hai" - A film which rocked the world of all the youngsters in the country and so truly captured the camaraderie between best friends, a film which I have seen over a dozen times. A film that has inspired me to make a movie someday.
Along the way came several other movies as well, which included Lakshya - a film that I perhaps didn't like the first time I saw it. But the film somehow grew on me. Every time I saw it thereafter, I liked it even better.
And then came his acting debut - Rock on. With this he really rocked his fans.
This page is my ode to Farhan Akhtar. A person by whom I have been deeply influenced.
