A multitalented Bollywood star Farhan Akhtar celebrated his 45th birthday on Wednesday. Be it an actor, producer, director or a musician Farhan has been able to justify each role and has been a voice of India's youth through his films.

He was born in Mumbai to screenwriters Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani. He began his career in Bollywood as an assistant director in Lamhe (1991).

Farhan made his directorial debut with the film Dil Chahta Hai (2001) and received critical praise for portraying modern youth and the film also won a National award.

Later in 2004, he made the film Lakshya.

With these two films, Farhan Akhtar became the voice of the urban youth.

In 2006 he received his first commercial success with the film Don and in 2007 he directed a documentary named Positive to spread HIV-AIDS awareness.

Farhan made his acting debut with the film ‘Rock on’, for which he won another National Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi as producer.

In 2011, he produced, acted and wrote the dialogues for the critical commercial success Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which went on to win two National awards. The same year, he directed Don 2 a sequel to Don, which remains his highest-grossing film till date.

In 2013, he portrayed Milkha Singh in film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, earning him the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.

Farhan Akhtar gave a new definition of friendship through his films and resonated the voice of the audience. Besides being a genius filmmaker and actor, there have been so many instances when he stepped up and opined on pertinent issues, and ensured that his voice is heard.

Farhan initiated the Men Against Rape and Discrimination (MARD), a social initiative designed to create awareness to instill gender equality and respect towards women. Through this initiative, Akhtar highlighted the need for men to stand up for women's issues.

After the launch of his MARD campaign, his efforts were recognized by the United Nations Women, and he became the first man to be named as a Goodwill Ambassador in the organization’s history.

He had been able to spread a message of gender equality through his poetry. 

Indeed, Farhan has subtlety played his dynamic personality, and opened an ‘ace card’ when a time required.
