Farhan Akhtar and Rebecca Beeds in a still from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
It was at an event on Saturday when a media person asked the director-turned-actor if his recent on screen kiss in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag had placed him in the league of Emraan Hashmi, tagged as Bollywood's serial kisser. An onlooker says, "Farhan was visibly miffed and snapped at the media person for asking about the kiss instead of how hard he had worked on his body to prepare for the role."
Perhaps this was one such incident where Farhan Akhtar could have kissed and made up. Instead he chose to lose his cool on this one.
Ever since the makers started promoting the film, Farhan's 'two-year-long intense preparation' has managed to grab most of the headlines. His eight-pack abs has been almost in your face but looks like for Farhan, the adulation has not been enough.
Apparently, a disgruntled Farhan shot back, "I have worked so hard to get the right body and prepare for the role, then why fuss over a simple kiss?" In a bid to comfort an annoyed Farhan, his co-star Sonam Kapoor and director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had to jump to his defence and pacify him. We don't deny Farhan must have pumped iron for his role, but then mastering the perfect kiss on screen also takes effort, no? So why be a prude?
