HYDERABAD: Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says for him getting onto a stage to perform is like jumping out of a plane and he is yet to shake off that fright.



When asked whether he suffered from stage fright, Farhan told reporters here: "Every single time! I equate it to jumping out of a plane. I have done 100-plus jumps by now, but every time I go to the door, there's always that one little element of 'what if'? At the back of my head. But once you jump off, it's just incredible.



"Even during my concerts, I get that same feeling when I walk up the stairs to the stage. I take a deep breath, but it's always good after that," he said.



The multi-faceted Akhtar is performing live for the first time at a music festival, Windsong music festival, the two-day event commencing here tomorrow.



On how his daughters Shakya and Akira react to their rocker dad, he said, "They are always very excited! I think, they like the music of Rock On!! the most because they connect with my voice in the songs.



"They also like the music of 'Karthik Calling Karthik' like 'Uff Teri Ada' and 'Hey Ya'. Shakya, the elder one, likes the 'Dil Chahta Hai' album because she was very young when she first heard it. They also like listening to the songs of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' because it's 'happy' music for them, the kind they can sing along to."



On what one can expect from the performance at Windsong music festival and anything in particular the fans can get excited about, he said it's definitely exciting coming here as a live performer.
