No, the noted director isn't switching his profession. He is simply making his acting debut.

Farhan Akhtar is headed to Venice to shoot for director Anand Surapur's movie The Fakir . The film is the story of a Fakir and a young production controller. Actor Anu Kapoor plays the Fakir while Farhan plays a production controller named Kamal who escorts the fakir from India to Venice.



"It's basically a story about the search for life and how the truth about existence comes to us at the most unexpected junctures of life," says Farhan.

The film actually went on the floors more than a year back. In fact, it was supposed to be complete before Farhan began working on his recently released movie 'Don'. But the project had got stuck due to some personal problems in Surapur's life.

Now, Farhan resumes shooting for the film once again. And again he has got the short haircut for his character in the film. Farhan's look has been designed by his wife Adhuna.

Farhan says it was the movie's script that got him hooked to the project.

The shooting schedule in Venice will last for a month.
After that, Farhan will return to be by the side of his wife, who is expecting their second child.
