Actor, director, extreme sportsman, rock star, Farhan Akhtar has broken all the rules. GQ's cover star of the month and India's multi talented film guy Farhan Akhtar speaks about life after Rock On, male bonding, star kid-dom and breaking 'Bollywood formula' boundaries. The January 2009 issue hits stands on 30th December.

Exclaims Farhan, "I must have been the only kid in the world who knew about and loved movies so much that I would wake up early for school, just so I could watch a little bit every day. I had this almost romantic relationship with film. I was always watching something and collecting movies - tapes, then LDs when they came and now DVDs. There has never been anything else that I wanted to do."

Says Che Kurrien, Editor GQ India, "For the cover of GQ India's first issue of 2009, we chose Farhan Akhtar - the renaissance man of Indian cinema. Akhtar acts, writes, directs and sings, inspiring men across the country to go and chase their dreams, whatever their line of work. Now that's GQ!"

GQ gives you the perfect start to 2009 with The Good Life: How to do London in a long weekend; last-minute Valentine's breaks; the ultimate Indian spa guide; the best oceanic scents; grooming advice.
