Farhan with Deepika in Kartik Calling Kartik
For the first time, the Rock On fame, director and actor Farhan Akhtar and Om Shanti Om glam doll Deepika Padukone will act together. They are coming together for lighthearted thriller ‘Kartik Calling Kartik’. Farhan who has win the hearts of all with his performance in ‘Rock On’ will try his hand at comedy. "Not that 'Kartik...' is a full-fledged comedy. It's a thriller. But it has a lot of light funny moments, something that I missed out in my first two, actually three (the unreleased ' The Fakir Of Venice ')”, quips Farhan.
After Om Shanti Om, Deepika hardly had any box office hit but the actress is still in demand and makers do not feel risk to cast her. Apart from the two lead actors, the film also stars Shefali Shah and Boman Irani. The shooting will commence from April. Farhan who played a singer in his debut film is a music lover in real sense and hopeful to cut a music album in the near future.
"But for that I need to take out a chunk of time and devote my full attention to it. Singing is not just a hobby. It never was. I need to pursue it seriously. And not only because of ‘Rock On! '. I can't just have someone else composing the songs while I go in the studio and record," said the director cum actor cum singer.
