Farhan Akhtar Says No To Aamir Khan
Bollywood’s versatile director, actor and singer Farhan Akhtar has done it again. Akhtar who is not only known for his directing skills but is a hit in music circle has refused to sing for Aamir Khan’s character in Reema Kagti’s next.
The director of blockbuster Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd wanted Akhtar to sing in her flick but the actor bluntly refused to do so.
A source was quoted as saying, “Reema has a fabulous music sense. The songs in her directorial debut Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd were big chartbusters. She has big musical plans for the Aamir starrer. In fact, the film has a theme song just for Aamir`s character.”
This is not the first time that Farhan has turned down singing offer as he left everyone shocked when he refused AR Rahman`s offer to sing in the movie ‘Blue’. Not only this, he also turned down the offer to star and sing in Rohan Sippy`s ‘Dum Maro Dum’.
However, the actor has his own reasons for not accepting such lucrative offers. Farhan said that according to him he should sing only for those characters which will suit his voice. “I enjoy singing. It is true, I haven`t sung for anyone else on screen apart from myself. But it`s not because I am possessive about my voice. I don`t know if my voice will work on anyone else. My singing adds to my performances. I don`t know if it would do the same for the other actors,” said the actor.
“If I feel really kicked about singing for someone else, I will. Singing is not a profession for me. As of now I`ll sing only for myself,” he added.
While justifying his decision, Farhan admitted that he has sang one song in his sister Zoya Akhtar`s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. “All three of us, Hrithik, Abhay and I have sung for my sister`s film. It`s a party situation. It seemed interesting to lend our own voices to our characters. That`s the only song I`ve sung in a movie this year. Otherwise I am constantly singing in real life.”
