I Am Retiring From Choreography: Farah Khan
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 reality 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.
Meanwhile, she is busy with her TV assignments. She is already searching for talent for Just Dance with Vaibhavi Merchant and has also signed up to judge Entertainment Ke Liye Kuchh Bhi Karega with Anu Malik.
Currently taking auditions, Farah says she is "overwhelmed" by the raw talent in the country. "It has been overwhelming. We have been auditioning 50-60 people a day. I am amazed by the talent but they all come with challenging stories and at times it becomes difficult to say no," says Farah, adding that her stint as a reality TV show judge has not made things easy.
Farah is happy that Just Dance does not have a public voting system.
"There is no public voting, which is kind of a relief because we will make sure that only the deserving candidate gets the chance not the most popular one," Farah adds.
