Farhan Akhtar is all set for the release of his upcoming film Rock On 2.
One of the most versatile artists from Bollywood, Farhan Akhtar is all busy with the promotions of his upcoming film Rock On 2. The actor who has been allegedly linked with Shraddha Kapoor in the real life will be now be seen with her onscreen. It’s obvious that it would now fuel the rumor mills about the duo’s equation.
In a recent interview to leading tabloid, the actor cleared the air about the rumors. He says, “It is unfortunate that actors are forced to develop a thick skin. It is bad enough when untrue things are said. Over time, you are stripped off of the energy, battling things that have no substance. How can Ritesh [ Sidhwani, production partner at Excel Entertainment] and I fight over Shraddha? The idea of casting her came from him. He’d seen Aashiqui and Ek Villain and loved her voice. He was adamant that she play the role. Be it my so- called split with Ritesh or my various liaisons with women, I let it pass”.
“The actor agrees that such rumors do affect him personally. He said, “You have to be cautious when you meet that person next time. When you work on a film, friendships are formed. It is not so clinical that once you wrap up, you don’t chill together ever again”.
“When you meet those people after long and want to catch up, you have to do it discreetly because of prying eyes. Most of those eyes are watching it from some sort of creatively tinted glasses already. I have tried hard to not let such things affect me when I am promoting [ the film] with Shraddha”, he added further.
Rock On 2 also stars Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Purab Kohli, Shashank Aroraand Shahana Goswami.
It will hit the silver screens on 11th November, 2016.
