Male bonding has always been a strong theme in Farhan Akhtar's career as a director and actor and so he is now excited about starring along with Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol in sister Zoya Akhtar's new film.
'Having two friends like Hrithik and Abhay Deol to do this male bonding film with me is a blessing. Abhay I've known from the time he stepped into my role in Reema Kagti's 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd'. I get along famously with both of them. So shooting this male-bonding film with Hrithik and Abhay in Spain should be loads of fun,' Farhan told IANS.
The yet-to-be titled film will go on the floors in April next year and Farhan says he will have to wrap it up before September.
'Hrithik has been a true friend from the start. He not only did that cameo in Zoya's 'Luck By Chance', he also agreed to accommodate Zoya's new film. I start directing 'Don 3' from September 2010. And Zoya's film had to be completed before that. Hrithik adjusted his dates accordingly,' he said.
Farhan's directorial debut 'Dil Chahta Hai' was a tale of three friends played by Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna. Later he debuted as an actor with 'Rock On!' that was again about four friends who form a music band.
Admitting that male bonding plays an important role in his films, he said: 'That's true. But no one will say Zoya's film with me, Hrithik and Abhay is in any way similar to my 'Dil Chahta Hai' or to 'Rock On!'.
'Zoya's film is a different zone of male bonding. I've done just one scene with Hrithik in Zoya's 'Luck By Chance'. Now I've a chance to do a whole film with him. Both Hrithik and Abhay are actors I admire greatly.'
