Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol To Star In Zoya Akhtar’s Next Movie
Farhan Akhtar will be starring alongside Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol in his sister Zoya Akhtar’s next movie.
"Having two friends like Hrithik and Abhay Deol to do this male bonding film with me is a blessing. I have known Abhay from the time he stepped into my role in Reema Kagti's 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd'. I get along famously with both of them. So shooting this male-bonding film with Hrithik and Abhay in Spain should be loads of fun," Farhan said.
The untitled film will go on the floors in April next year and Farhan says he will have to finish it up before September.
"Hrithik has been a true friend from the start. He not only did that cameo in Zoya's 'Luck By Chance', but also agreed to accommodate Zoya's new film. I start directing 'Don 3' from September 2010. And Zoya's film had to be completed before that. Hrithik adjusted his dates accordingly," he said.
Farhan's directorial debut ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ was a story of three friends played by Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna. Later he debuted as an actor with ‘Rock On!’ that was again about four friends who form a music band.
Admitting that male bonding plays a vital role in his films, he said, "That's true. But no one will say Zoya's film with me, Hrithik and Abhay is in any way similar to 'Dil Chahta Hai' or 'Rock On!'.
"Zoya's film is a different zone of male bonding. I've done just one scene with Hrithik in Zoya's 'Luck By Chance'. Now I've a chance to do a whole film with him. Both Hrithik and Abhay are actors I admire greatly."
