niranjan : hey in lakshya dvd it is said that u r making a film named A VOICE FROM THE SKY....is it your next project?
farhan : yes it is.... voice from the sky is up next for me
syed : Mr Akhtar i watched Don dont u think u focused more on style rather than the script although i loved your don
farhan : Thanks syed. No i don't think so, style is not as important as content for me. But one can use style to make the storytelling more effective
BHAVIN : YOUR TAKE ON KANK??
farhan : I am not a good reviewer of films bhavin
don : why dint u join nachbaliye2???
farhan : was busy with the post production on Don
anmol : hi farhan. i luved ur version of don especially da climax. there's scope 4 a sequel. r u planning 2 make a sequel 2 it?
farhan : I have not closed the doors on a sequel.... Don is around and will return when he is good and ready
belphegor : Hi Farhan, Please sign AAMIRKHAN as new DON in the sequel. In Hollywood - we see different actors as James Bond then why can't we see here different actors as DON. Besides, AAMIR is a perfectionist so everyone sit up and watch what he does to the role - pl. revert
farhan : Hi Belphegor, as much as I love Aamir and his work and his films as a director I do not think he will make a very good Don. He looks too nice to be that mean!
DON : why does DON becomes vijay if he don't want to hide ?
farhan : thats a good question Don! To create a new identity for himself. Function freely in the world without having the law on his back
jinn : Hi Farhan! Being Son of such talented parents, what are the best and worse quality u have aopted from your parents and among your parents who u think is more talented...Comment Please!
farhan : Hi Jinn. the best quality I haven't adopted yet and I am filled with the few bad qualities that they have between them.
Nash : how much did don cost to make?
farhan : it was roughly about 7-8 million dollars
dch : mr. akhtar have u seen jaanemann..and if yes then wat is ur take on it?
farhan : I have seen Jaanemann, and I liked the directors method of storytelling
I have seen Jaanemann, and I liked the director’s method of storytelling

farhan : No Shobhi. He's dead! RIP
bollywood : farhan...is this really u????!!!!
farhan : Yes bollywood... it really is, don't know how that proves it. LUV
Charla : who is your current favorite actor in the industry?
farhan : I am not adverse to working with any actor who I feel lends himself well to my script.
chintan : According to you in the year 2006, which is the best film released so far?(except DON)
farhan : Lage Raho Munnabhai
belphegor : Farhan, you are underestimating AAMIR - don't forget, no one expected him to be a TAPORI - but look what he did in RANGILA
farhan : no I am not underestimating him, he does not fit my vision of what I would like Don to be like... that does not undermine him as an actor in any way.
