Farhan Akhtar sure is making the most of the awards season in 2012! The actor has won over 45 awards, big and small, for his sister Zoya Akhtar’s critically acclaimed film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD, 2011). In fact, to make more space to accommodate them, Farhan, who recently renovated his house, has had to create a special corner and buy a new cupboard just for his trophies.

Our source says, “Farhan decided to buy a big cupboard, and put all the awards in it. That way he knows they are safe and he doesn’t have to worry.” We tried contacting Farhan, but he was unreachable as he’s out of the country.

But his spokesperson says, “It’s true that Farhan has had to get a new cupboard to keep all his trophies. ZNMD is a very special film for him and it’s close to his heart. So he believes it must have a special place in his house.”
