'I was never averse to acting'

There are a very few things that Farhan Akhtar hasn't tasted success with. From making his directorial debut with landmark film like Dil Chahta Hai to a hit remake like Don, Farhan has come a long way.

And now his fans await to see him in a yet another avatar, as actor and singer in forthcoming release Rock On!. Read on as the director-actor-singer speaks about this new role. Excerpts:

So from a director you are now an actor and a singer...

(Laughs) It's nothing like that. I am doing this film because I liked the story and the role. That's why when director Abhishek Kapoor came to me, I did not hesitate much.

But we never knew that there was an actor and singer in you...

I was never averse to acting. I always liked acting, only that I never thought of giving it a serious try but I was always open to it. I was waiting for a right time because I don't think I could do so many things at a time. I started as a director and wanted to focus on my work.
