He rocked through the hearts of the youth with his memorable act in Rock On and Bollywood actor-director Farhan Akhtar hopes that he will get a chance to reprise his role in future.
"I would love to do another Rock On if given a chance," Farhan told PTI.
Farhan, who made his directorial debut with Dil Chahta Hai in 2001 has come up a long way in Bollywood and has tried out his hands on everything coming his way being a script writer, actor, playback singer, lyricist, film producer, and a television host.
"Rock matches my identity and I have over 18, 000 songs on my I-pod. I listen to classics like Pearl Jam and Guns N Roses for inspiration.
"My mind is open to everything and I do everything with equal amount of passion. I have tried acting and singing, maybe after one or two years you will see another asset of mine," Farhan said on the sidelines of his rock performance as the brand ambassador for Maruti A-Star on its first anniversary.
However, Farhan who followed up Dil Chahta Hai with Lakshya and Don is perturbed by reports that he is not interested in making films any more as his last movie Positive, a short film on AIDS starring Shabana Azmi and Boman Irani came way back in 2007.
"I feel bad about such reports, I was ready to direct Don 2 this year but Shahrukh had to undergo a surgery so we had to postpone it. I am also also working on a movie called Sid but it is in a very initial stage and we are still putting it together," says the 35-year-old director.
