Off the cuff : Excerpts from Farhan Akhtar's Interview

Rate Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and yourself on a scale of one to ten on the following parameters 


• Communication skills SRK - 15 Aamir - 10 

Hrithik - 8 or 9 

Myself - 5 



• Life of a party It is difficult to rate this in numbers. SRK and Hrithik are very funny. Both of them love dancing so once the party kicks off, they are always dancing. Aamir is a lot more reserved. In all honesty, I haven’t partied with Aamir since Dil Chahta Hai SRK - 10 Aamir - 5 

Hrithik - 10 

Myself - 8 or 9



• Easy to direct Honestly, they were all very easy to direct. ALL - 10 



• Willing to admit to mistakes Again, I think, I would give all of them 10 and that’s what makes them good at what they do. I know for a fact that I can be stubborn about certain things. 



• Emotionally giving I spend a lot more time with Hrithik and Shah Rukh than I do with Aamir. So it will be really difficult for me to say anything about Aamir on this front. 



• Extempore speakers 

SRK- 10 

Aamir - 5 

Hrithik - 8 

Myself - 5 



• Aware of the world All of us are pretty aware of what’s happening in the world around us, so I would probably rate them just up there. Even if we want to detach ourselves from what’s happening around us you media people don’t let it happen. There is no escape. So 10 on 10 for everyone • Be a 3am friend My friendship is more with Hrithik and Shah Rukh than it is with Aamir. My relationship with Aamir is a lot more professional than personal so to put him into this equation feels very weird as it’s unfair to him. 



Myself - 0 

I switch off my phone when I sleep, I love my sleep. I think I don’t qualify for this. 



• Politically correct

SRK-3 or 4, mostly he says what he feels 

Hrithik- 10 

Myself- 7 or 8, I have the knack of saying wrong things as well 



• Spontaneous 

SRK- 10 

Hrithik- 8, He has changed a lot from what he was to what he is now 



• Animal Charm 


Hrithik -10 

Both of them are very attractive people. 

Myself - I don’t know about myself (laughs) how do I rate myself on animal charm?
