Fans went gaga over his chiseled physique in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag but actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar reveals that neither does he prefer that body type, nor does he like going topless.
In the latest episode of Colors Infinity’s “Vogue BFFs”, when host Kamal Sidhu unveiled a picture of Farhan from his shoot for Daboo Ratnani’s calendar for this year, the actor recalled how the ace photographer had a difficult time convincing him to pose for a topless picture.
“This was last year, while shooting ‘Rock On 2’, when we came back from Shillong. This is November or December of last year, it was for Daboo’s calendar which was this year. There’s a lot of diet that’s required to even get into shape, for the shot, in particular. I don’t like that kind of body at all. I much prefer a body when you wear clothes, you don’t like you really have much of a physique going on below it,” Farhan said in a statement.
He said he was feeling conscious while doing the shoot because the photographer wanted the show on the side of a road because he liked a certain wall. Kamal then went on to ask him if he was shy in general.
“It took Daboo about six years of trying to convince me to do a shot for him without my T-shirt on. Every single time he would say to do it, I would always come and put something on. I am like, ‘I can’t, I don’t want to do it,” the Rock On 2 star said.
Farhan will be seen along with producer friend Ritesh Sidhwani on Vogue BFFs on Saturday.
