He received rave reviews for his performance in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD). And now Farhan Akhtar is being bombarded with more offers to act.
Interestingly, the name on the top of that list is Karan Johar. The director-producer has apparently offered him a film under his banner, Dharma Productions. And sources say that the Dil Chahta Hai-director might just sign the dotted line. However Farhan is currently on a 20-day break and is reading scripts from other production houses.
Ask Farhan about Karan’s offer and he remains non-committal. “I am reading several scripts. But at this point, no film has been finalised,” he says. Despite repeated attempts, Johar remained unavailable.
A few days ago, Farhan had stated that he is keen on signing films outside his production house. “I’m in talks with a few big producers. In the past, I agreed to do films outside my production house, but nothing worked out. As long as I get a sincere and honest vibe from the other person, I’m ready to take up the offer,” says Farhan.
According to sources close to him, Farhan had avoided working with other production houses by saying that he ‘wanted to concentrate on Excel Entertainment’. But thanks to ZNMD, now it has become awkward for him to keep saying no. Farhan has also put the editing of his next directorial venture, Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Don 2, on hold for these 20 days.
