Farhan Akhtar can’t be categorized into one role as the multi-talented star does everything from acting to directing to singing to producing and writing.

In recent interview the star spoke about his future projects and where his interests lie.

“There is Reema Kagti's film, ‘Talaash’, which is with Aamir, Kareena and Rani that we're producing. Now we're just finalizing projects that we want to do next year so between me and Ritesh (Sidhwani) at Excel, that's what we're doing- short listing directors and scripts that we'd like to work on,” he said.

The actor said that his interests don’t lie in one field.

“My focus lies in film in general so what I am producing, going to act in or direct- all my interests are covered under one blanket,” he said.

While talking about his upcoming movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ the actor said that it took a lot of training to get the desired body and when he achieved the target, Milkha Singh, on whom the movie is based, was moved by their hard work.

“Milkha Sigh was supportive from beginning. He was surprised looking at the resemblance we share now. He was very moved by our hard work and efforts,” he said.

The movie is a biopic on life of Milkha Singh also called as ‘Flying Singh’. This is the first biopic for Farhan Akhtar. The movie is directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra and also stars Sonam Kapoor.
