    Default I知 actually taller than Deepika: Farhan Akhtar

    Follow us on Social Media

    Bollywood actors aren稚 normally comfortable pairing up with tall actresses, but director-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar had no problems working with Deepika Padukone in 適artik Calling Kartik and says she isn稚 taller than him as believed by many. The fun element spilt over on the sets of 適artik Calling Kartik when Deepika decided to end the controversy about how tall she is. 鉄o far I presumed she was taller. I had even measured her height on my talk show 前ye! It痴 Friday and I was okay with the fact that she looked taller than me. I致e absolutely no problem being shorter than my heroine. She made me stand next to her. And to my surprise she turned out to be no taller. In fact, maybe I知 a half inch taller than her. Deepika says she isn稚 as tall as she looks. It comes from having long legs I guess, he added.
    Farhan, who debuted as an actor with hit flick 迭ock On! last year, admits he is having a ball shooting for director Vijay Lalvani痴 適artik Calling Kartik. 溺y earlier films were somehow connected with the entertainment industry and therefore they had a direct or indirect bearing on my life.But in 銭artik Calling Kartik I知 totally out of character. Also, in all my films so far I play a troubled introvert. In 銭artik I start off as an introvert and then become a totally flamboyant guy. It痴 fun, he said.But at the same time he is itching to get back to direction.敵iven a chance I壇 like to direct a film this year. Unfortunately 膳oice From The Sky didn稚 work out and I start 船on 2? next year, said Farhan, who has directed films like 泥il Chahta Hai (2001), 鏑akshya (2004) and 泥on - The Chase Begins Again (2006).
    While Farhan痴 father Javed Akhtar scripted his version of 泥on, a remake of the 1978 Amitabh Bachchan-starrer of the same name, the sequel is Farhan痴 idea. When I opted for an open ending in 船on I wasn稚 leaving room for a sequel. I just wanted to show that the protagonist is cleverer than everyone else. But now that ending comes in handy to carry the story forward into a sequel, he said.
    Farhan confirms that the film will star Shah Rukh and Priyanka Chopra. 釘ut there are lots of supporting cast that will change.
