Farhan Akhtar was born to screenwriters Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani in Mumbai. He has an elder sister, writer–director Zoya Akhtar. His parents divorced during his early days, and his father married Shabana Azmi in 1984. Akhtar has termed his parents as the "harshest" critics in his career, and also considered Robert De Niro as an "inspiration" in the film industry.
Akhtar is the grandson of Jan Nisar Akhtar, and the cousin of Farah Khan and Sajid Khan. He did his schooling in Maneckji Cooper school in Mumbai and went on to study a law degree in the HR College, also in Mumbai, during which he was dismissed from the institution in his second year due to lack of attendance. His next few years were spent mostly just watching movies. He married Adhuna Bhabani in 2000, after being in a relationship with her for 3 years. The couple have two children named Shakya and Akira.
