Actor and producer Farhan Akhtar keeps himself away from rumours and speculations. Akhtar isn't one for controversy and is rarely heard speaking about others in the industry. Recently Abhay Deol involved Farhan Akhtar in a controversial comment surrounding Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Deol called out award functions for snubbing Farhan and himself from the title of lead actor.

“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday nowadays! Also a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards Very creative artwork @kalakkii
