Lakhshya: Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta played the lead parts in Farhan’s next film, Lakhshya (2004). The movie Lakhshya was based on the life of a lost child who finds his true purpose. Hrithik changes from an aimless young man to an obedient army officer in the movie. Farhan had to do a lot of research on Indian army culture for the movie because it has an army theme. The film, which was shot in Ladakh, Dehra Dun, and Mumbai, was the first of many Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar collaborations.

Hollywood Soundtrack: Farhan also contributed the lyrics to the Bride and Prejudice soundtrack. On the advice of her father Javed Akhtar, her sister Zoya Akhtar joined him for this endeavor.

Don: Farhan Akhtar’s third film, which starred Shah Rukh Khan (the King of Bollywood), was another significant turning point in his career. The film was a replica of the Amitabh Bachchan-starring Don (1978). Don was a very well-liked and legendary film that holds the distinction of being a remake. Even though the film was financially successful, Farhan never intended for it to serve as the “torchbearer of the remake brigade.”
