FARAH SET TO SHOWCASE MORE REALITY
While reality show is ready, talks on film will materialise soon, says the choreographer-turned-filmmaker
Farah Khan loves re-inventing herself. After judging several singing reality shows, the choreographerturned-film maker will now be seen hosting a new reality show “Lip Sing Battle”, where Bollywood celebrities will battle it out on lip synced songs.
Here in Lucknow to promote the show, the ‘Main Hoon Naa’ director says she loves shopping here.
“When I came to Lucknow during the time of Indian Idol, we used get a day off which was spent entirely on shopping and shopping. Though I am also a big time foodie, but food you can get from hotels and restaurants. Shopping is something that possible only by going around places,” she says while praising the embroidered

A multi-tasker, the Shirin Farhad actor enjoys donning many hats. “Seriously, I love it all, be it choreographing or filmmaking. But over the years I have also stated enjoying doing TV a lot because it has given me the audience,” she says.
Her favourite, however, is still filmmaking.
“Though after every film I get saturated and want to go on an unending break to Maldives after sometime I start missing the process of film making,” she says while revealing that her next will be announced soon.
“I am in talk with many stars, including Shahrukh Khan. Let’s see what the outcome will be.”
Insisting that she is proud of her husband’s popularity on social media, Farah says Shirish Kunder’s witty updates keeps her updated about the world.
“Otherwise I am a very private person and loves lazing around doing nothing. Also Shirish has a great cinema sense that comes very handy to me all the time,” she adds.
On her upcoming show, she says the series is finite and the concept different.
“I always prefer doing finite series. And if it is not one I always make it one, (laughs).”
To be aired on Star Plus during weekends, Farah says “The show is spoofy and funny.” "Since I have to call celebrities who are my friends, I am the presenter-cum-show-runner of the programme,” she says while hinting on the show’s format.
“I have worked, choreographed and directed so many celebs. I call them on the show with an openness to present their crazier side.”
Opening up on guests, she says: “Raveena is a good friend. So I know she had performed on Sridevi’s song during college days. In the show, I have made her perform on the same song.”
“Since I know them all personally, I can tell them to do what they are comfortable in,” she says.
"Like Ayushmaan Khurana told me he used to perform on Govinda’s song (mera pant bhi sexy) during college days and wanted to perform on that song again. So I got it choreographed with Ayushmaan and added some gags. And also got Govinda as a surprise on the shoot for the act. I want the show to be funny, spoofy and crazy,” says the choreographer who shot to fame with ‘Pehla Nasha’ in 1991.
