Farah: Bol­ly­wood has be­come im­per­sonal

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Farah Khan be­gan her ca­reer as a chore­og­ra­pher in Hindi film in­dus­try and has donned the direc­tor’s hat for block­busters such as Om Shanti Om (2007) and Happy New Year (2014). Farah, who has jour­neyed for over two decades in show­biz, says Bol­ly­wood has now be­come more im­per­sonal.

Asked how the at­ti­tude of ac­tors has changed over the years, Farah said, “Of course peo­ple are pro­fes­sional, but I feel some­thing still stays the same. Ac­tors are still self­ab­sorbed.”

“Now ev­ery­thing is run by man­agers and artist man­age­ment companies. Ear­lier, it was a lit­tle per­sonal... Now it’s all cor­po­rate and im­per­sonal.”

Farah started her jour­ney with Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikan­dar in 1992 and went on to di­rect her first film Main Hoon Na in 2004.

Cur­renty, she hosts a re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show, and feels grateful for her jour­ney of 25 years in the in­dus­try.

“Time has flown, but it’s nice. 25 years down the line, I’m do­ing rel­e­vant work and am still in the thick of it all. So, I’m grateful,” she added.

Farah, 52, mar­ried film­maker Shirish Kun­der in 2004 and gave birth to triplets in Fe­bru­ary 2008.

Asked if she ever plans to di­rect a show on the small screen, she said, “I have been of­fered a lot of web se­ries but the thing is that TV has a very dif­fer­ent work style. I don’t think I have the pa­tience or the in­cli­na­tion to do it.”
