“I am open to experimenting on TV” – Farhan Akhtar

Farhan Akhtar is the latest Bollywood town celebrity to turn to the small screen. He will be seen hosting a new show ‘I Can Do That’ on Zee tv wherein celebrities will be seen taking on challenges.

However, this is not the first time that Farhan will be hosting a show on television; Farhan has earlier hosted a celebrity talk show, ‘Oye! It’s Friday’.

Speaking about his inherent inhibitions Farhan says, “I couldn’t speak on stage or entertain people. Even after ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, when people asked me to come on stage and share my experience, I would make excuses saying I am not well and couldn’t do it”.

Farhan says that the unique concept of the show is what made him excited to take up the show.

He says, “This is a concept that Indian audiences have not seen before. If I had to make the jump to TV, I had to be excited about it. I am open to experimenting on TV as I believe it is a very powerful medium”.

So when asked what would he like to challenge and to whom?

The talented Farhan says, “I would like to give my dad (Javed Akhtar) the challenge of following an exercise regime strictly, so that he can stay healthier for long”.

Well that’s a very good thought and indeed a powerful challenge ever to a loved one.

Here’s wishing Farhan good luck for his upcoming show!
