Now that New Year is here, all the magazines, glossies and newspapers will surely have a gala time flashing the celebs on their covers. Kick starting this year's magazine covers-story category is none other than the super cool magazine GQ. After having created a sensational launch in India with the super cool Saif Ali Khan, followed by Daniel Craig no less, GQ welcomes the New Year with the one and only Farhan Akhtar, the name to watch out for this year.
In this issue, the actor-director-extreme sportsman-rockstar etc, Farhan Akhtar speaks about life after Rock On, male bonding, star 'kid-dom' and breaking 'Bollywood formula' boundaries. Farhan, in this issue, speaks all of everything. A few gems from him includes, "I must have been the only kid in the world who knew about and loved movies so much that I would wake up early for school, just so that I could watch a little bit every day. I had this almost romantic relationship with film. I was always watching something and collecting movies - tapes, then LDs when they came and now DVDs. There has never been anything else that I wanted to do."
Explaining the reason to choose Farhan as the 'cover-boy', Che Kurrien, Editor GQ India, says, "For the cover of GQ India's first issue of 2009, we chose Farhan Akhtar - the renaissance man of Indian cinema. Akhtar acts, writes, directs and sings, inspiring men across the country to go and chase their dreams, whatever their line of work." No one in the world has got any 'proof' to negate that! Words to go, Farhan...we mean... way to go!
For the curious and the impatient ones, the date to remember is 30th December as the January 2009 issue hits the stands then!
