Bollywood actors Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol had worked together in the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which was a blockbuster!
It was a few weeks back when the actor Abhay Deol had posted about his film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. He had expressed his displeasure saying that Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif were considered as the leads while he and Farhan Akhtar were treated as supporting actors.
Now Farhan has reacted to the same post as he was talking at India Today e-Conclave. According to him, he is not looking for any kind of validation in the industry. He said, “You are constantly hearing about some rat race. And everybody is fighting each other to some kind of spot which does not exist. I mean the fact is you have to believe in yourself… You have to work sincerely, work hard, how many magazine covers you will do, whether you came on the front page of a magazine, or the front page of a newspaper.”
The actor went on to add, “If that is your larger interest, I really feel that you are in the wrong profession. You’re not here for that. Have you come here to be an actor, director, singer, music composer? Or have you come here to be a reality star? Have you come here to be just, I don’t know, a star?”
He even said that seeking external validation might give people momentary satisfaction. But eventually, it would only lead to disappointment.
Earlier, as a part of his post Abhay Deol had written, “There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it.”
