Mumbai, Sep 25 (IANS) From the time he made that feisty feel-cool film about three urban dudes called 'Dil Chahta Hai' to his surrealistic take on the Amitabh Bachchan blockbuster 'Don', Farhan Akhtar has never ceased to surprise.

Now Farhan has agreed to play the lead in his sister Zoya Akhtar's directorial debut 'Luck By Chance'. This is probably the first occasion when an established filmmaker would star in his sister's directorial venture.

'Yes, I'm Zoya's leading man. I don't know how it happened. But it has happened. I'm putting on hold my next directorial venture 'Voice From The Sky' to star in Zoya's film,' Farhan told IANS.

Zoya, who has been struggling to put together her directorial debut for the past two years, has decided to put aside 'Kismat Talkies' featuring Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor, which she had decided to make earlier.

'For now 'Kismat Talkies' isn't happening. If you remember, 'Luck By Chance' is the film Zoya had decided to make initially. She's back on that project. We start shooting in March 2008.'

Interestingly, 'Luck By Chance' is set within the film industry.

It would be the third major film from Bollywood on Bollywood after Farah Khan's 'Om Shanti Om', which is set in the 1970s and Sudhir Mishra's 'Khoya Khoya Chand', which focuses on the 1950s era.

Zoya's 'Luck By Chance' will be a more contemporary take on the industry.

'It's my second starring role. I've also played the lead in Anand Surapur's 'The Fakir Of Venice'.'

Farhan was supposed to play a role in his talented associate Reema Kagti's 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd', which eventually went to Abhay Deol. He couldn't do it because at that time he was busy with 'Don'.

Bengali director Rituparno Ghosh was supposed to cast Farhan as Shabana Azmi's son in a film.

'I don't know what's happened to that project. But for now I'm looking forward to my acting in my sister's film,' said Farhan.
