Added by harini on Jul 14, 2011

Farhan Akhtar is not only known for his acting chops but also his direction skills. With his debut movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ itself he established himself as an out of box director.

He has already worked with the big guns of Bollywood like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan. If someone is missing from the its Salman Khan. And Farhan Akhtar says its not because of lack of trying.

"I have approached Salman on two occasions with scripts over the last few years...something that he would be really good for. But he had his own plans (laughs)... fair enough. I have absolutely no problem collaborating with him. My banner has approached him previously and will keep approaching him. After that, it is his decision if he wants to do a film with us or not”, said Farhan Akhtar.

Talking about his rapport with Salman Khan he said, “"We are not great friends but I grew up with Salman. He taught me cycling and swimming. In fact, Sohail, Alvira, Arbaaz, Zoya and I are very close. We party a lot. Salman is not around that much because he is very busy."

When asked if a rift was caused between him and Salman due to the fall out between his parents he said, "It was good of them not to involve us kids in their issues and differences. It never filtered down to us”.
