Is Farhan Akhtar Bollywood's new action hero?

Actor Farhan Akhtar takes on a lot of action sequences in his upcoming thriller Wazir! The actor confesses that, after having been beaten up onscreen in a fair few films to date, he was excited at the prospect of thrashing the bad guys himself in Wazir.

The film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan in the lead roles alongside Aditi Rao Hydari. Farhan says,

“I had a wonderful time doing action. I have directed action in films like ‘Lakshya’ and the ‘Don’ series. It is a different experience when you are directing it and doing action as an actor. In films like ‘Rock On’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ I get beaten up, so I was excited to do action onscreen in this film. Different films have different kinds of action. This is pitched in a hard, gritty and real way and Bejoy Nambiar (director) is good at it. I enjoyed doing it.”

With all the buzz around this film we can’t wait to start off the year with Wazir! Keep it locked for more updates and be sure to check out Wazir releasing January 8th!
