I am retiring from choreography: Farah Khan
Mumbai: She is the woman behind the popular Hindi dance numbers ‘Munni’ and ‘Sheila’ but Farah Khan says she wants to retire from choreography.
Indian chreographer Farah has already made a name for herself as a director with movies like ‘Main Hoon Naa’, ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Tees Maar Khan’. Besides being a mother to three children, she has also turned producer for husband Shirish Kunder’s upcoming film ‘Joker’, which has left her with little time to focus on choreography.
“I have been trying to take a break from choreography for a long time. I would have retired long ago but you make exceptions for friends and you are unable to break away from it,” Farah told PTI.
The director, who is currently busy finding talented dancers to match steps with Hrithik Roshan on the Star Plus show ‘Just Dance’, is yet to break away from her first profession.
She is also choreographing the moves for ‘Joker’, her home production.
“Once in a while it is nice to go and choreograph a song but I am a director and producer now. I don’t want to do it actively now,” she adds.
‘Tees Maar Khan’, her last directorial venture starring Akshay Kumar did not exactly create magic at the box office but the raunchy number ‘Sheila ki Jawani’, featuring Katrina Kaif, became an instant crowd favourite after ‘Munni Badnam’ from ‘Dabangg’, which was also done by Farah.
‘Joker’ once again stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha and being the choreographer, Farah is sure to come up with some fresh moves. “I am the producer of the film. I am choreographing it and being the good wife to Shirish,” says Farah, who will direct her new movie next year.
“I will start my film next year. With children, we both can’t work together. But I have finished the screenplay.
I am yet to write dialogues. I need the complete bound script before I decide the cast,” she says.
