Trolls compare Farhan Akhtar to a ‘croaking frog’ for his singing: Not apologetic at all.

Farhan Akhtar’s singing has always left the audience with ‘divided opinions’, according to him. During his appearance on the latest episode of Pinch, hosted by Arbaaz Khan, Farhan Akhtar addressed the attacks on his singing, the constant requests for Don 3, the evils of social media and the futility of fighting trolls, as well as the mystery behind Salim-Javed split.

Arbaaz Khan read out some unflattering comments about his singing, including one troll comparing him to ‘thousand croaking frogs’. Farhan laughed and said, “This is a part of my social service extension. I want people to stay and home and listen to me.” He also added that people have enjoyed his songs from Rock On! Atrangi Yaari with Amitabh Bachchan and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. “I totally understand that my voice is not a conventional playback singer’s voice. There is a certain quality of work that is associated with playback singing. My skill level or tone is not in that vicinity. So I don’t sing for other people. I absolutely enjoy it, and I am not apologetic about it at all.”
