Farhan, 44 made his playback debut in 2008 with Rock On!!. He also gave vocals for the sequel, crooning “Jaago”, “You Know What I Mean”, “Manzar Naya,” and “Woh Jahaan”. His musical credits also includes popular songs like “Senorita” from Zoya Akhtar’s “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara” and “Gala Goodiyan” from “Dil Dhadakne Do”.
On the work front, there have been speculations that Farhan would be helming the next film in the Don franchise. Putting a period to the buzz, Farhan recently tweeted, “Request those who conjure up news about #Don3 without any fact checking to please refrain. It is not fair to raise expectations of the films fanbase via false news.”
