Farhan Akhtar Reveals He Gets Mixed Reactions For His Unique Husky Voice; Says, “Some Liked It, Some Didn’t”
Bollywood star Farhan Akhtar is one of the famous actors. With the cult film Dil Chahta Hai (2001), he made his directorial debut. He acted in films like Luck By Chance (2009) and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013). He sings too. In fact, what is keeping him busy is performing his original English songs for the first time in Mumbai.
People love his unique, husky voice. But initially, he admitted that the reaction to it was a “mixed bag.” He said, “There are some people who liked it, and there were also some who didn’t like it. That is part and parcel of life. You can’t expect everyone to love everything you do all the time. That is not going to happen. I really don’t know what to comment on how people feel about it, this is the voice I have been given.”
He said that he is happy that people like it now. He added, “What’s important is that over time, I feel the love of people wherever I go. At the end of the day, no matter what happens, it’s important to me that those who come for my concert have a good time. I make sure that my performance is good, my singing is good. There is a lot of focus on it.”
Farhan laughed and said that he is constantly improving. He does not think any singer reaches that place where they say ‘this is it.’ He wants to keep pushing, and that’s been happening. He concluded, “Also, people mimic my voice, they can’t mimic my style.”
