Ear­lier this year, fans of for­mer mem­ber of the Bri­tish boy band One Di­rec­tion, Zayn Ma­lik, were in for a treat when film­maker Farah Khan hinted at cast­ing him in the se­quel to Main Hoon Na (MHN 2004). We asked Farah if that was just play­ful ban­ter or was she se­ri­ous, and it seems like she has made up her mind. “As soon as I write Main Hoon Na 2, and if I ever write it, we will surely think of this be­cause Zayn Ma­lik is an ex­tremely good­look­ing guy and he is tal­ented. I think he met Shah Rukh (Khan) some­where and on Twit­ter he wrote that Main Hoon Na was his favourite movie,” she says.

How­ever, right now Farah has other plans. “As of now there’s no plan of MHN 2. I am writ­ing this other script about two girls, which I am fin­ish­ing,” she says.

Farah, who was re­cently hon­oured at the 37th Cairo In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val for her film Om Shanti Om (2007), says that awards in In­dia have lost their im­por­tance. “When I started, al­most 22 years ago, win­ning an award was a big thing and it was pres­ti­gious. At the time we would not know who will win the award. All the nom­i­nees would sit and we would wait. But down the years now, be­cause there are so many of them and be­cause it’s more a TV show, some­where it has got di­luted.”
