Farhan Akhtar: I get strength from all women of my family

Actor-singer-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says he gets a lot of strength from all the women members of his family.

Farhan has been dedicated to raising women empowerment issues and makes significant contributions through his MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) NGO towards the cause. He has even launched a song for International Women’s Day.

Who is the most important woman in Farhan’s life?

“Well, there are many of course. All the women of my family, they are exceedingly important to me and also very inspirational to me,” Farhan, who is a father of two daughters, said.

For International Women’s Day, the ‘Wazir’ star along with Farout Media, a music innovations, publishing and talent development company, has released a special song in collaboration with music director Kalyan Baruah, titled “We are all on the good side”.

It is inspired by a painting by his younger daughter Akira.

The ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ actor says he gets a lot of strength “from them for the things that I do”.

On the movie front, Farhan is currently preparing for the release of his next film ‘Rock On 2’, which also stars actors Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli.
