Actor-writer-singer-producer-director Farhan Akhtar celebrates his birthday today. As an actor he gave a hit with Rock On and as director he is successful with Dil Chalta Hai and Lakshya.
Farhan is born to celebrity parents Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani and he chose the hard working way to success! That explains the reason as to why he started his career by working as an apprentice at the tender age of 17, which was followed up by doing multiple jobs of all shapes and sizes.
Farhan took some time before he actually started calling the shots. It’s only after he got himself equipped with ample experience and expertise, he made his writing and directorial debut with the mega smash hit flick Dil Chahta Hai. This was followed by yet another cracker of a movie Lakshya.
Farhan produced and acted in Rock On, in which he also rendered songs with the rock band.
