Mumbai: Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says he prefers to cover up his body for photo shoots.
In the latest episode of Colors Infinity's 'Vogue BFFs', when host Kamal Sidhu unveiled a picture of Farhan from his shoot for Daboo Ratnani's calendar for this year, Farhan recalled the shooting days, read a statement from the channel.
"This was last year, while shooting 'Rock On 2', when we came back from Shillong. This is November or December of last year, it was for Daboo's calendar which was this year. There's a lot of diet that's required to even get into shape, for the shot, in particular," Farhan said.
"I don't like that kind of body at all. I much prefer a body when you wear clothes, you don't like you really have much of a physique going on below it."
He said he was feeling conscious while doing the shoot because the photographer wanted the show on the side of a road because he liked a certain wall.
Kamal then went on to ask him if he was shy in general.
Farhan said: "It took Daboo about six years of trying to convince me to do a shot for him without my T-shirt on. Every single time he would say to do it, I would always come and put something on. I am like, 'I can't, I don't want to do it.'"
Farhan, who had showcased his fit frame in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', will be seen along with producer Ritesh Sidhwani on 'Vogue BFFs' on Saturday.
