Interview with Farhan Akhtar:
Are you building six pack abs ?
“Actually, I am under going all round training. I play a struggler trying to get into bollywood in Luck By Chance. I am being trained by Cheetah Yajnesh who has even directed a couple of films. He trains actors to become a part of the film industry. And since I play a bollywood struggler. I have hired Cheetah Yajnesh Shetty’s services to make me look convincing. He will appear on the screen along with me as my trainer.”
To build your muscles and all ?
“No, no… just the action, weapon training, hand-to-hand combat, etc. That portion of the film is over. I did a couple of sessions with Cheetah Yajnesh Shetty before facing the camera. I realized it isn’t easy to be a struggler. It looks easy from the outside. But once you get down to doing it, it’s a very demanding kind of discipline.
How convincing will you look as a struggler ?
Er….. I hope to be a very convincing struggler. All of us have to struggle. At the end of the day actors, even directors turned actors have to act.
