After playing two thought provoking roles as wannabe singer and wannabe actor in 'Rock On' and 'Luck By Chance', Farhan Akhtar is all set to try his hand at comedy for the first time in 'Kartik Calling Kartik'.


'Not that 'Kartik...' is a full-fledged comedy. It's a thriller. But it has a lot of light funny moments, something that I missed out in my first two, actually three (the unreleased 'The Fakir Of Venice') starrers,' Farhan told.


Strange, considering Farhan is known for his sense of humour in real life.


'I don't know why I've been cast in such serious parts so far.'


Deepika Padukone plays the female lead in 'Kartik Calling Kartik' that also stars Shefali Shah and Boman Irani.


'We start shooting in April,' said Farhan, who also plans to cut a music album.


'But for that I need to take out a chunk of time and devote my full attention to it. Singing is not just a hobby. It never was. I need to pursue it seriously. And not only because of 'Rock On!'. I can't just have someone else composing the songs while I go in the studio and record.'


Farhan has just completed his innings as a chat-show anchor on 'Oye! It's Friday'. In the last episode, he entertained cricketer Sourav Ganguly and actress Kangana Ranaut as his guests.


'I don't think I've had so much fun before. I'm a huge cricket addict and Sourav was a delight. And I'm amazed by how relaxed and natural Kangana is.'
