Farhan Akhtar in war with Hollywood!
Farhan Akhtar may have started his acting innings very late as compared to any actor in tinsel town but he managed to make an impact. His debut movie Rock On! became a huge hit among the audiences and so was he. His raw and brash voice also found takers in the industry so much so that the director-turned-actor turned down A R Rahman’s proposal to sing in Blue! Never mind his singing choices…as Farhan is making some right noises on the acting and production front. He’s ready with a powerful script for a film on the lines of a Hollywood war movie complete with a Hollywood cast.
The film is titled Sid and will have majority of the crew and cast member from the West. The script is ready and is supposedly a power packed action venture. The story is war-based, along the lines of Hollywood flick 300.
Sid will be directed by Farhan’s best director these days Abhishek Kapoor who also directed his debut film Rock On! The story is by Ashok Kumar Banker, the author of Ramayana. He had earlier written Gods of War. Farhan insists that the film is neither based on God of Wars nor a sequel to Lakshya as perceived by many in the industry. It’s a completely different film with a one-of-its kind story.
