Farhan Akhtar turned down a part in this Aamir Khan film

Farhan Akhtar is truly a multi-talented star. Before making his acting debut, he was busy making progressive cinema in early 2000s. Farhan has acted in two Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorials so far but recently, the filmmaker revealed that the number could've been three. Farhan was offered a part in the classic film 'Rang De Basanti'.

Rakeysh said, "He was truly amused because he had just made Dil Chahta Hai and was finishing Lakshya. I told him I wanted him to act in my film and he could not believe it at that point of time!

"I had offered him the part of Karan, which was the only author backed character in the whole film. Farhan was fascinated. I could see the twinkle in his eyes. He wondered 'What's wrong with this guy who is seeing me act in a film?!'"

Apparently Farhan couldn't see himself acting at that point. He was focused on the work behind the camera. However, he made his acting debut with the 2008 film 'Rock On' and went on to work with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra on the film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and 'Toofan'.
