Farah: Bollywood has become impersonal
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.”
