Farhan Akhtar Gets A Hug From Robert Di Niro


It was dream come true for Farhan Akhtar when he got a hug from his favorite superstar Robert Di Niro. Di Niro has been Farhan’s childhood idol and he finally got a chance to meet him thanks to the launch of Atlantis Hotel in Dubai last week.“I can’t even begin to tell you what it meant to me. I mean, everyone who loves cinema loves De Niro, right? But with me it’s a little more,” Farhan told IANS.“When I heard he was going to be there at the Dubai event, I had to be there too. Yes, De Niro was my primary incentive for attending. I had hoped for a handshake with De Niro at the most. I got a hug. I don’t know whether he felt my respect for him. But to see him so up close and personal was an awesome experience.“De Niro turned out to be a thorough gentleman. Everyone there at the Dubai event wanted to meet him. What an ordeal it must have been for him to smile and talk to everyone. But he was so in control,” Farhan said.Since Farhan has just begun his innings as an actor, not many people know about him, especially folks outside India. But look who’s introduced Farhan to Di Niro - apna SRK.“Shah Rukh (Khan), who was with us, was sweet enough to tell De Niro quite a lot about my work. De Niro has given us his contact details where we’ll be sending him my films. I’m doing so right away. I’m completely impressed. I hadn’t gone there expecting him to give me a star treatment or anything. But he was wonderful. He spoke to us. That was more than I could ask for.”“We were constantly doing something or the other, attending one event after the next. There was no respite. You can hardly call it a holiday. Now I need a holiday to get over the experience and relive my golden moments with De Niro. To me it was amazing to have met someone who has been a complete inspiration for me. My love for movies was inspired by people like De Niro and Mr. (Amitabh) Bachchan. He was a wow factor right after I saw ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, etc.”You just cant stop raving can you!
