Farhan Akhtar cherishes special hug from Jaya Bachchan Farhan Akhtar
Farhan Akhtar has got compliments galore for his performance in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. But there is one silent praise he cherishes most.

Farhan Akhtar's performance in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has been applauded by everyone, but a special moment of praise for him was when veteran actress Jaya Bachchan hugged him after watching the film.

"A moment that has stayed with me is when Jaya aunty saw the film and after she saw it, she gave me a really long hug," the 39-year-old said here Wednesday at the unveiling of the latest issue of Star Week magazine featuring him on the cover.

"Ever since I have been working, from 'Dil Chahta Hai', I have never seen her react like this to anything I have done. So that is really special," he added.

Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", a biopic on ace athlete Milkha Singh, saw Farhan essay the title role.

Censor board must stand up for filmmakers: Farhan Akhtar

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar believes the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should speak up for filmmakers when movies such as Madras Cafe get caught in controversies despite being cleared by the board.

Even as John Abraham's "Madras Cafe" has been appreciated by the audiences, it has also invited protest from certain groups leading to a no show in Tamil Nadu.

Akhtar said it is upto CBFC "to defend our interests, to fight for our interests because we are responsible to them and they are responsible to us".

"I would hope that they will also stand up and speak in our favour in these matters," the 39-year-old said here Wednesday at the unveiling of the latest issue of Star Week magazine featuring him on the cover.

Farhan stressed that once the censor board gives a green signal to a movie, it must be allowed to be screened.

"My stand on this is very clear. Once the censor board, who represents the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to us... once they have told us that we can go ahead and release our film, I feel we should be allowed to release our film, no matter where in the country, if the authority of the board applies in that state," Farhan said.

"It's unfortunate that films get caught up in the politics of our times," he added.

Shoojit Sircar-directed "Madras Cafe" had received a go ahead from the CBFC. However, theatre owners refrained from releasing it fearing protests from Tamil activists over its sensitive subject.

Set against the Sri Lankan civil war, the film also depicts scenes which resemble the 1991 assassination of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. The film especially came under the scanner after Tamil activists alleged that it portrays the LTTE cadres as terrorists.
