10 Years Of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara: Throwback To The Time When Farhan Akhtar Spoke About His Character, 'I Got To Just Let My Hair Down'
I still remember Farhan Akhtar’s excitement when Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was about to release in 2011. Farhan said his role in ZNMD is a totally different one from his earlier characters, “In Zoya’s Luck By Chance I was a sneaky social climber. In ZNMD it’s a sea change. I play this guy who for the longest time takes nothing seriously. I am not even rich and I don’t pretend to be. I’m just happy being the way I am. I got to just let my hair down. Many moments in this film gave me a chance to have lots of fun. After Rock On, Luck By. Chance and Karthik  Calling Karthik which were all serious angst-laden characters in ZNMD I play a fun character.”

The film was shot extensively in Spain. “Yeah, all of us-Zoya, Hrithik, Abhay, Katrina, Kalki and me…became this little commune travelling across Spain. We travelled a lot. Spain has everything from beaches to mountains. So far only Bollywood songs have been shot in Spain.” He also clarified that despite the rumours there is no bullfight in the movie but that they did participate in the Running with the Bulls festival. Farhan had a blast while shooting the film, “We made sure every scene was fun.  Abhay, Hrithik and I spent a lot of time together. We really had some serious fun.  Hrithik, I knew for a long time. Abhay I got to know during this film. He’s a very cool guy.”

He also revealed two other cool things; one that there was a lot of improvisation during the scenes and two that “all three of us Hrithik, Abhay and I, have sung in ZNMD. It’s a party situation. It seemed interesting to lend our own voices to our characters. It’s turned out really, really well. I am very excited.”
