After impressive performances in films like ’Luck By Chance’ and ’Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ’Farhan Akhtar’ will be seen essaying the role of a jail inmate who realises his dream to become a singer in this week’s release ’Lucknow Central’. In a candid chat with BT, the actor spoke about being a father to his two daughters and insisted how despite the milieu in which we live in, that is plagued by sexual violence against women, parents should not let their fears translate into the way the children lead their lives. he said, "Like any parent, I worry about the safety of my kids. But beyond that, I don’t feel a parent should make a child, and especially a girl child, feel any differently because of their insecurities for her. I don’t think your fears should translate into the way they lead their lives. A conversation is important for them to trust you and know that they are not being judged. They should be able to speak about everything that’s going on in their life. That’s what empowers kids to be themselves." When asked how he strikes a balance between his professional commitments and daddy-duties, he added, "It’s all about making time. Of course, it was a lot easier when I was living with them in the same house. They want time and a listening ear. The biggest mistake parents make when they meet their kids is that they start telling them what they feel. It should be about what they want to do, eat or play."
