If reports are to be believed, then Farhan Akhtar will be seen as a cricketer in Abhishek Kapoor's next film. The film is based on the book of Chetan Bhagat, titled 3 Mistakes Of My Life. There are even reports out as to which character Farhan Akhtar will be playing.
They are terming his character a mix of Aamir Khan in two different films – one from Lagaan and one from 3 Idiots. It seems that Farhan Akhtar is very serious about his role in the film. He seems to be going Aamir Khan’s way. It is heard that Farhan Akhtar will be taking cricketing lessons from a professional.
The two books written by Chetan Bhagat have a slight similarity and yet both books were turned into films. Both his books Five Point Someone and 3 Mistakes Of My Life are based on the story of three friends. When on one hand, Aamir played the character of Rancho in 3 Idiots; Farhan will be playing the character of Ishaan in his upcoming film.
Well, if there is so much similarity in both the films, why make the later one, when one already has the idea of the story? Moreover, the game of cricket and patriotism forms the moral fiber of the film.
Only the film has the answer to these questions!
