Farhan measures up to Deepika Padukone`s height

Farhan Akhtar's latest starrer Kartik Versus Kartik is turning out to be more fun than any of his previous starrers.

Admits Farhan, "My earlier films were somehow connected with the entertainment industry and therefore they had a direct pr indirect bearing on my life. But in Kartik Versus Kartik I'm totally out of character. Also, in all my film so far I play a troubled introvert. In Kartik I start off as an introvert and then become a totally flamboyant guy. It's fun."

The fun element spilt over on the sets of Kartik Versus Kartik on Sunday when Farhan's co-star Deepika Padukone decided to end the controversy about how tall she is.

Says Farhan, "So far I presumed she was taller. I had even measured her height on my talk show Oye It's Friday and I was okay with the fact that she looked taller than me. I've absolutely no problem being shorter than my heroine."

On Sunday Deepika challenged the view. "She made me stand next to her. And to my surprise she turned out to be no taller. In fact maybe I'm a half-inch taller than her. Deepika says she isn't as tall as she looks. It comes from having long legs I guess."

Farhan admits he's having a ball shooting for Kartik. "But given a chance I'd like to direct a film this year. Unfortunately Voice From The Sky didn't work out. And I start Don 2 next year."

While Farhan's father Javed Akhtar scripted Farhan's Don remake, the sequel is Farhan's idea. "When I opted for an open ending in Don I wasn't leaving room for a sequel. I just wanted to show that the protagonist is cleverer than everyone else. But now that ending comes in handy to carry the story forward into a sequel."

Farhan confirms the film will star Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra. "But there're lots of supporting parts that will change."
