After failing to rope in good friend Saif Ali Khan in his next directorial venture, Farhan Akhtar has signed Akshaye Khanna for the role.

It has been quite some time since Farhan announced his plan to make Voices From The Sky , an unusual film about the evolution of telecommunication system. The director had first approached Saif who expressed interest in the project but allegedly quoted an astronomical acting fee that pulled the rug from under Farhan's firm feet.



Having being turned down by the man whose career he gave a turnaround in Dil Chahta Hai , Farhan approached Akshaye Khanna (another DCH actor) for the lead role.

Akshaye heard the script and was so kicked by the project that he instantly gave his nod to Farhan.

The director now wants to begin shooting his film from November onwards.

At present, Farhan is looking forward to the release of his film Rock On , in which he plays a rockstar.
