Farah Khan turns heroine for Bhasali’s next

Ace choreographer and filmmaker Farah Khan will now be seen in the role of a lead actress.  She will be playing a leading lady in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Shirin Farhad’ to be directed by his sister Bela.

When Farah Khan was given the offer by Bhansali, she was very embarrassed and does not how to react.  The report is interesting in two ways. Firstly, Farah Khan is making her Bollywood debut at 40 plus and secondly, she and Bhansali shared cold shoulder in the past.

When asked why Farah as the heroine, Sanjay laughs, "It is the best way of taking revenge on her." Then getting serious, he adds, "I thought she suited the role perfectly. It's a funny and very tender and quaint love story of a Parsi couple. And the character of Shirin suits her perfectly. Farah has amazing wit and wicked humour and I could see that translating on the screen."

Let’s see who pairs opposite Farah.
