Mani Ratnam is most creative director: Farah Khan
Mumbai: Farah Khan, who has choreographed several songs for multiple film directors, says the most creative of them all is Mani Ratnam.
“The most creative director I have worked with is Mani Ratnam. My best work was in ‘Dil Se..’ and ‘Alaipayuthey’. He really finds something different to do in the songs. Sometimes it doesn’t gel with the movie, but when you see it as a song, you will fall in love with it,” Farah told IANS.
Farah, who has also directed films like “Main Hoon Na” and “Om Shanti Om” after becoming a successful choreographer, said she became a choreographer by default.
“When I became a choreographer, I was not assisting any choreographer. I was assisting the director Mansoor Ali Khan for ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’. I was the fourth assistant director… That time choreography was not an option only,” she said.
For “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar”, which starred Aamir Khan, Farah had choreographed the famous song “Pehla nasha”.
