I can't think beyond Shah Rukh: Farah
By Prashant K. Nanda, Indo-Asian News Service
New Delhi, Dec 28 (IANS) Choreographer-director Farah Khan says Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will feature in all her future projects as he is a great friend and well-wisher.
"More than professional reasons, my relations with Shah Rukh are very personal and he will be there in all my future projects. At this point of time, I cannot think beyond him," Farah, clad in jeans and a bright pink kurta, told IANS.
"Whether as an actor or as a producer of my film, King Khan will always be there. I think he is not only a big star but also a great actor and stage performer. He is simply a great friend and well-wisher," she added.
She was in the national capital to promote Sony Entertainment's popular reality show "Indian Idol-II". Farah is one of the judges for the show, the others being Sonu Nigam and Anu Mallik.
When asked about her association with "Indian Idol", Farah, who loves to read books and watch films, said: "Talent hunt shows are providing the necessary platform to youngsters and it's definitely good news for Bollywood.
"But there should be some limit to the number of shows; otherwise it will end up with no craze and lose credibility like soap operas in TV."
When asked about her debut movie "Main Hoon Na" and the challenges a female director faces in Bollywood, Farah said every job was challenging.
"There is no job without challenge but as a female director I have not faced any problems so far. Rather, the cooperation from my colleagues has helped me do well in the industry as both a director and a choreographer," said Farah, who is currently choreographing for a film called "Janeman".
She also said to thrive in the Hindi film industry one needs to make good films. "When people (audiences) are so conscious about their choice, there is no place for so-so films with some underdeveloped script.
"By good, I mean, pure entertainment woven around a touching script. Unless the script is up to the mark it will be very difficult to hone the potential of actors."
Talking about her forthcoming film, she said: "The project is in a nascent stage. The script is getting ready and after that I will give the details. But one thing for sure, Shah Rukh is going to be a part of it."
