Farhan Akhtar Reveals He Told Abhay Deol to Never Sing After Senorita, Here’s Why
Farhan Akhtar who starred with Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara shared why he told Abhay not to sing after Senorita
Farhan Akhtar is one the most well-spoken celebrities in Bollywood. Not only is he an actor, but also a well-versed musician, director, producer and screenwriter. He started his career as producer with Dil Chahta Hai back in 2001, which proved to be a worldwide commercial success, and later made his acting debut in 2008 with Rock On!! One of his biggest projects till date is Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara, which released back in 2011. Now, the actor is gearing up for the release of his next film, The Sky is Pink, once again, sharing screen space with Priyanka Chopra. While promoting the film on the Kapil Sharma show, Farhan looked back on his time while filming Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
The film, which stars Farhan and Hrithik Roshan, also featured Abhay Deol as the third friend. It also marked Abhay’s first singing project for the song Senorita. Farhan was impressed with Abhay’s singing and there were rumours that he asked the Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! actor to sing all the songs from his upcoming films. But Farhan cleared the air. He said, “No, this is not true. I was highly impressed with his singing, but I didn't offer him songs from my upcoming movies. Instead, I asked him to not sing any song after Senorita so that the exclusivity of the song remained alive.”
In summer this year, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara completed 8 years of its release. On the celebration, Abhay penned an emotional note on Instagram. He wrote, “It’s been 8 years since we made this film. It’s the one movie that had people come up to me and say, ‘I saw this and I quit my job’ or, ‘I saw this and made peace with an old friend,’ to ‘I took a break from work’ and even, ‘I got a divorce!’ It inspired people to follow their dreams, to take action, to accept who and where they are. I couldn’t ask for more! It was an honour and a privilege to work with you Zoya Akhtar.”
