Farah Khan is in a confession mood. Though her second film Om Shanti Om has broken all box office records and has already accumulated more than 85 crores just from India, she regrets that her film spanned almost 3 hours.
She says in a humorous tone, 'The moment I started recording 'Director's commentary' for the film's DVD, I started wondering if it was a good idea to make a movie as lengthy as this. Imagine, I was lying on my bed in my bedroom while recording for the commentary where I was required to give a frame by frame account of the film.'
'Within a few minutes I was extremely breathless. I was around 7 months pregnant when I had to work on the DVD of Om Shanti Om. I wanted my audience to know what went into the making of the film and the kind of goofs that happened. I also wanted to use this medium as an opportunity to let the world know about the kind of support I got from not just my crew but even the industry while I was making Om Shanti Om, she adds.
'It was a nice experience to be recording my commentary but quite a tedious exercise. I was left exhausted after every few minutes and this was the time when I felt if only the film could have been a bit shorter', jokes Farah Khan currently looking after her triplets.
