Ac­tor-film­maker Farhan Akhtar (right) says that he really looks up to film­maker Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra for his hon­est feed­back. Akhtar is cur­rently work­ing on a film with ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan that is be­ing pro­duced by Cho­pra.

“Lak­shya (2004) had just re­leased then and Vidhu (Vinod Cho­pra) hap­pened to be there at the screen­ing. He called me and said that he did not like the sec­ond half of Lak­shya,” he says ex­plain­ing why he takes his feed­back so se­ri­ously.

He adds, “Since then I re­spect his hon­esty. So the next time we spoke in 2014, he told me about this script and said that he wanted my feed­back on it. When I heard the script, I was blown away.”

Elab­o­rat­ing on what the script is about, Farhan says, “It moved me to my core as it is an emo­tional film. There is a lot of fo­cus on the ac­tion scenes that peo­ple will really like. But the film also gives a glimpse into what is really im­por­tant for us in life. It will really get you think­ing,” he says.

Vidhu saw Lak­shya and told me that he did not like the sec­ond half of the film, I re­spect his hon­esty
