I want to make Tom Cruise Dance: Farah Khan

The filmmaker-choregrapher held a masterclass at IFFI this year

Farah Khan

Choreographer- Filmmaker Farah Khan was at her wittiest best at an in-conversation session at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) Goa. When she was told that she wears various hats, Farah answered,  “Primarily I am a mother to my three children. I have directed only 4 movies in 12 years. So that is something I have done the least.”

Asked about the challenges when it comes to choreographing a song, she opined, “It is easy to choreograph when a director has a clear vision about how the song has to look. Mani Ratnam has great clarity he pushes the technicians to give their best. Even Kundan Shah, Mansoor Khan…they all are great.”

On being accused of making masala films, Farah said, “Please don’t leave your brain or any part of your body behind. A general perception is that a film that has entertainment that has no value. Unfortunately, we all are prejudiced.”

“I love all sorts of films…I love them (Art films) for their serenity. I admire movies that let you be. The only thing a film shouldn’t do is to bore you. I don’t expect a film to educate you… at least in a preachy manner… because I went to school. I loved the film Munna Bhai that has entertainment along with a good message.”

Farah didn’t agree that films have an impact on society. She feels, “Gandhigiri would have been a big thing or India Pakistan treaty would have happened after Main Hoon Na if that was the case.”

When asked about being addressed as a female director, Farah said, “It’s not a gender-specific job. Don’t slot me. A lot of women directors accept and revel in that but I reject that.”

When asked about why there are very few women-centric films, Farah said, “Because there is a business module. A big-ticket film with a big hero tends to earn more. Audiences don’t go to watch films with women in the lead. They want to go and watch a big hero film over a female-centric film.”

On being blamed for making masala films, she clarified, “No director should be told what to make or not make. In all my movies I make sure that the woman has a job, they are not only there because they want to get married. You won’t see any obscenity or vulgar scenes in my films.”

Looking back at item songs in films, Farah said, “In the 90s and early 2000 we did a lot of songs. When we look back, we wonder if that really happened. Now as you grow and learn, you realize you shouldn’t do these kinds of songs where you objectify women. Now you are careful… sometimes people also get touchy about frivolous things but a lot has changed too.”

Talking about the song Deewangi from Om Shanti Om, Farah was asked if she managed to get all the actors she wanted. She laughed, “Aamir drove me crazy for ten days but he couldn’t make it because he was editing Taare Zameen Par… After 4 years he told me he didn’t want to do the song.”

Talking about the iconic Chaiyaa Chaiyaa song, Farah said, “We couldn’t get the permission to shoot at the station, so we managed to shoot it on top of a train and without rehearsals, we did it in 4 days…no one fell,” she joked and added, “We approached Shilpa to Raveena… a lot of other actors but no one did it. Malaika did the song and became a star after that.”

Talking about how there are fewer song and dance numbers nowadays, she explained, “Lot of songs today are non-lip sync. Soon you might not have songs to dance on.”

Talking about remixes, she said, “I am fed up of remixes. I don’t know why they are making them. It’s a call the music company has taken, because it is nostalgic. A retro song catches fast.”

She also spoke about her web show called Back Benchers. “It is a quiz show…sometimes we dumb it down when we know which celebrity is coming,” she said with a wink.

When asked about what she wishes to do in says the next 5 years, Farah promptly replied, “I definitely want to make Tom Cruise dance!

Contestant Sonal Vichare and Choreographer Tushar Shetty play Bharti and Haarsh in their performance on India’s Best Dancer

Watch Comedy Special on India’s Best Dancer this Saturday, 8PM only on Sony Entertainment Television!

Sony Entertainment Television’s popular show India’s Best Dancer brings another entertaining episode with spectacular performances by the contestants. This weekend, the show celebrates Comedy Special and extends a warm welcome to the two veterans Shakti Kapoor and Chunky Pandey who are known for their impeccable comic timing. The two, who have played many memorable characters on screen, were entertained by the contestants’ amusing performances. All the acts took the fun and comic quotient a notch higher, however Contestant Sonal Vichare and Choreographer Tushar stole the show with their performance, as they played hosts – Bharti and Haarsh on stage and danced on the song Paape Pyaar Karke Pachtaya.

After the performance, Geeta asked Bharti to comment as the act was based on them. Bharti said, “We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we laughed a lot looking at Tushar as Haarsh and Sonal with all the padding under her costume, ‘meri padding sponge ki nahi Paratho ki hoti hai’(laughs). I loved the performance, the small elements that they showcased through the dance was commendable.” Haarsh said, “In my entire life, I have written gags for other people, and seen talents that have performed for others, but today when I saw Sonal and Tushar perform for us, it was the greatest form of respect, having such talented people perform for you”.

Looking at Bharti and Haarsh get overwhelmed, Terence said, “Agar talents, ye show banate hai toh aap dono iss show ko jamate ho, comedy ka dusra naam Bharti hai. I speak on behalf of all the judges, the way you make us laugh, aap dono ki jodi kamaal ki hai, God bless you both.” Listening to this, Haarsh said, “I feel so good whenever someone praises Bharti for her work, she has got so many fans and the fact that she is my life partner makes me feel as though I have won a huge lottery. In life, people wish and want so many things, but for me meeting Bharti was the greatest highlight of my life. We did not fall in love at first sight, we were friends for many years and then decided to get married. Bharti has shown such love, affection, and commitment towards me. I am very laidback and lazy, handling a monster like me is not easy, but she has balanced her personal and professional life so beautifully. She has always been my first and only girlfriend and now my wife. Aajkal Ghar Nahi Sambhalte, Aaj Kal Career Bante Hai, because there is competition everywhere, but I consider myself lucky to have met Bharti.”

Geeta further said, “Haarsh, for you, it has been many years that you are writing scripts for so many people and Bharti has made so many people laugh. Having you both here on stage, create unscripted moments in a reality show, you guys do it so beautifully, it’s a joy to see you every time. I have said this to Bharti time and again, but I would like to say it again that whenever I see you, I feel so inspired. When I look at Haarsh, I still have the hope of finding The One for me”.

Nora Fatehi said, “It is so important to see what real love looks like and looking at you both, it gives the younger generation and us as well a ray of hope that never lose faith in genuine love. You both are lucky and blessed, Mashallah.” Amidst all the exchange of thoughts and emotions, Bharti asked Shakti Kapoor about his take on love, Shakti Kapoor said, “When I got married to Shivangi Kolhapure, people looked at me as a Villain because of the kind of roles I had done. People were worried that my marriage won’t last more than six months, and now we have completed 37 years of our marriage, and the love only gets deeper by the day. I really got emotional watching Bharti and Haarsh’s dance because I can see true love. I pray to God that you’ll stay blessed.”

Haarsh who believes he is not a good dancer gave Bharti a surprise and danced with her on the track, Kehte Hai Khudane. After the dance, Bharti could not hold back her tears and said, “Haarsh has done quite a lot of reality shows but this is the first time that he has said, ‘I Love You’ to me on Television. I cannot imagine my life without him. He accepted me for the kind of person I was, and after knowing each other for a few years, Haarsh directly proposed to me for marriage. The feeling was out of the world. I had to fight with my mother and I clearly told her, I will either get married to Haarsh only or spend my life taking care of you, she had to agree with me. Haarsh and I are more like friends who count on each other.”
