Throwback to when Farhan took dancing lessons from his elder (by nine years; they share a birthday, January 9) maternal cousin, one Farah Khan.

Chilling like villains.

Farhan has an amazing sense of humour, and it shows in the caption of this picture with his childhood buddy Hrithik Roshan: 'Bhala tumhare biceps (bachpan se) mere biceps se bade kaise????'

'I am so glad Farhan is a day older than me!' Hrithik had told Rediff.com way back in 2004.

They went on to act in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, directed by Farhan's elder sister Zoya, where on screen they had a combative relationship in the early part of the film.

Here, F&H live it up in Spain during the shooting of an important segment of the movie.

Years after that picture, Farhan gives us another special memory of four generations: 'Shakya with her daddy Farhan, her grandmother and great-grandmother.'

 

Caught candid, Farhan can't get his eyes off his pretty toddler Shakya.

Can you guess the team Mr Akhtar is supporting?

And this is where Farhan gets his handsome looks from.

Sharing this picture of his dad with Salim Khan, the duo who wrote so many Bollywood classics, Farhan says, 'They took the film industry by storm all those years ago.. their work still resonates in contemporary film-makers & writers' works .. love this picture of them.. fan for life.'
