It is said that director Reema Kagti wanted Farhan to at least one of the songs picturised on Aamir in her upcoming film but he turned down the offer even though his company Excel is producing it. He is of the opinion that his voice should match the character.
“I enjoy singing. It is true, I haven't sung for anyone else on screen apart from myself. But it's not because I am possessive about my voice. I don't know if my voice will work on anyone else. My singing adds to my performances. I don't know if it would do the same for the other actors," the Times of India quoted Farhan as saying.
However, that doesn't mean that he will not sing for others at all. He said that he would sing for others if he really feels like. He added that he would sing only for himself for the moment, as it is not his profession.
It maybe recalled that he had earlier turned down singing offers from A R Rahman and Rohan Sippy. He didn't even sang for his film Karthik Calling Karthik. However, he made an exception for his sister Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara after Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol also agreed to lend their voices for their respective characters.
