Farhan Akhtar Dismisses Split Rumours With Ritesh Sidhwani

Farhan Akhtar
MUMBAI: Farhan Akhtar is enormously amused by all the loud whispers of a split with his childhood friend and business partner Ritesh Sidhwani. Apparently the two have been even appearing separately at awards functions and other collaborative events.

"For God’s sake, Ritesh and I are business partners, not life partners. We are not husband wife to walk in hand-in-hand into every event," guffaws Farhan, completely rubbishing rumours of  a rift with Ritesh. "These talks are ridiculous. I don’t want to dwell into where and who these rumours are coming from. Ritesh and I are friends from school. We don’t need to sing dosti songs to the world to prove our closeness. In fact I think it’s ridiculous to even try to justify or rationalize such lose talk. We’re working together and we’re on the verge of announcing a number of projects  together. That should kill the rift rumours. If not, then my best wishes those spreading these rumors."

Says Farhan, "I really don’t want to go into conspiracy theories. Ritesh and I are happy doing the films that we are. For the record we are absolutely fine with one another."
