Making Lakshya was an eye-opener for me: Farhan Akhtar

By Sanyukta Thakare Wed, November, 15 2017
Farhan Akhtar was present at the book launch of 'Kashmir Nama' written by Karan Anshumna on Tuesday. During media interaction, the actor spoke about his experiences during Lakshya and said, that making the film was an eye opener for him.

Farhan's second film Lakshya in 2004 has a similar backdrop of the book 'Kashmir Nama', when talking about the film, he said, "Making Lakshyawas an eye-opener for me. Nobody from my immediate family who has army background so I had to learn a lot about it. My biggest learning was the serious amount of pride those people have in their country, their people and in their national identity. It doesn't matter where you send them to Kashmir, or for relief emergencies, they will always be there to serve us so that we have a better life."

He also shared where and how the idea of the film brewed in Javed Akhtar's mind, "As an idea, it was conceptualized in the mind of my father. He had been to Kargil in the year 2001 (I think) on the Kargil Diwas. while he was there, he met an officer who told him that there is so much praise for the Indian army at that point, they were at the pinnacle for pride, courage, and sacrifice for the country. But unfortunately, every single year the number of officers enrolling into the army became less and less. 

That's when my father decided he wanted to write a film that would inspire people to join the army and that's how Lakshya started."

Akhtar has worked with writer Karan Anshuman for films, Web series ‘Inside Edge’ and now this book, he praised Karan’s work and said, “It is easy to write a script because everyone is doing it. you can write a love story, or now thrillers are working so write a thriller. Good or bad is a different issue, but if you are choosing to do things that are different than what is happening is amazing. He has his own unique voice as a writer which is his USP and that is the most important thing we can look for in any creative force.”
Farhan was last seen in ‘Lucknow Central’ directed by Ranjit Tiwari costarring, Diana Penty, Ronit Roy, Gippy Grewal and Deepak Dobriyal.
