Farhan Akhtar (born 9 January 1974) is an Indian film director, screenwriter, producer, actor, playback singer, lyricist and television host based in Bollywood.He did his schooling in Maneckji Cooper school in Mumbai and went on to study a degree in commerce at the HR College, also in Mumbai, during which he was dismissed from the institution in his second year due to lack of attendance. During the Bombay riots of 1992 and 1993, he faced some controversy when he was perceived as a Muslim due to his name. He described the event as a "worst moment" of his life. However, due to his lack of involvement in religion and liberal background, he was not radicalised. Born in Mumbai to Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani, he grew up under the influence of the film industry. After completing his schooling in Maneckji Cooper school, he studied a degree of commerce in HR College, Mumbai, before dropping out, and began his career in films by working as an assistant director in Lamhe and Himalayputra.

Akhtar, after establishing a production company named Excel Entertainment along with Ritesh Sidhwani, made his directorial debut with Dil Chahta Hai and received critical acclaim for portraying modern youth. The film also won a National award.He started his acting career with Rock on!! and indulged in further experimentation before he acted in, produced and wrote the dialogues for the critical and commercial success Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which also won two National awards. 

Farhan Akhtar made his writing and directorial debut at the age of 27 with the critically acclaimed film Dil Chahta Hai (2001), produced by Excel Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.In 2008, Akhtar made his acting and singing debut in a musical film titled Rock On!!, for which he wrote the dialogues and also produced. The film was directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Prachi Desai, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli co-starred along with him.The film was acclaimed by critics and received positive reviews upon release. Gaurav Malani of The Economic Times wrote that the film seemed to be "clearly designed by Farhan Akhar as his own acting debut and he doesn't let himself down. [February 2009] I personally feel that since we (the Indian audience) are used to watching a certain kind of entertainment (the typical traditional bollywood movie) it'll take time for everybody to move on from expecting a routine typical Indian movie and accept a different kind of a movie like say Rock On!! (2008) or A Wednesday (2008). It will take a while for such movies to maybe attain a huge blockbuster status but, slowly but surely, people will realize that okay we need to apply ourselves to watching a movie.
