He played the role of an actor in Luck by Chance and was well received for the same. Farhan then went on to play a singer in the hit film Rock On, a poet/writer in the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and garnered a lot of appreciation for these roles too. The ace actor then portrayed the role of Milkha Singh in an autobiographical film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. He was seen as a fitness enthusiast.
All these roles were distinctly a part of Farhan as a person too. What remains is to see whether his role in DDD will also be an autobiographical role. The ace actor is known for his powerhouse performances and presence even in an ensemble cast film.
It is very rare for such a multi-talented person to stand out with every performance. With his next project he promises to enthral even though it's an ensemble cast film.
