Born on January 9, 1965, Farah Khan is the most sought-after artiste of B-town. She has won several awards for the out-of-the-box dance steps she came up with, for some of the most popular Bollywood films. But Khan’s talent isn’t restricted to choreographing; she has also tried her hand at directing and ended up doing absolute justice to it. Although we would choose to overlook a certain disaster called Tees Maar Khan, we hope the versatile Farah keeps a safe distance from committing such directorial sins next time around.
The choreographer-filmmaker is not exactly known to throw lavish birthday bashes. She prefers to have a get-together with near and dear ones at her home. And fortunately, that’s what she will be doing this year. The lady, who’s a huge fan of board games, plans to invite a couple of friends over and have a gala time with them.
She has a select group of Bollywood and non-industry folk who love to battle it out on board games like Trivial Pursuit till the wee hours of the morning. In fact the teams are divided into town folk and suburbanites as several of her pals are from south Mumbai. For New Year’s Day as well Farah preferred to usher in 2013 with her old pals at home.
The last 21 years in the industry since she started off with Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander have been only hard work and she slogged off like crazy, but it is today that she is reaping the benefits.
She is excited about starting her third directorial venture Happy New Year and waiting for Shah Rukh Khan to finish Chennai Express. Farah Khan has revealed that Shah Rukh Khan will be going for a distinctly new look for her film Happy New Year. “Post-Chennai Express, we will only begin work after 20 days, as Shah Rukh will need to work on his look. Though I can’t reveal any details about the look, but it will be a new look for sure,” she says.
