Actor Farhan Akhtar says that though he is presently enjoying acting, his real potential lies in writing and directing films. Before venturing into acting, Farhan, 40, directed, produced and wrote films. "I wanted to be associated with films. My strengths were writing and direction. When I did 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Lakshya' and 'Don', I was working closely with actors and felt that I should try my hand at acting," said Farhan to PTI while promoting his film 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects'.
"I am happy to be acting. I am thankful to the audience for the acceptance and support they have shown me over the years," he said.
Post the success of 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', Farhan is grateful for the change in the perception about him. “If people have an anticipation from my films, it reminds me to stay focused and make the right choices,” he said. It encourages me further," said Farhan.
