Says Farah, "The awards organisers are presenting me with the award for Desi Girl but I explained that I couldn't go. I can't leave my babies (Anya, Diva and Czar) for such a long time. I am already committed to Karan for the song in MNIK and I can't leave my babies twice. Karan had asked me six months ago to direct his song. Also I will be working while the awards event will be more like a holiday. I am very friendly with the organisers and they understood. There is no rancour with them. Tarun Mansukhani (the director of Dostana) or Abhishek might pick up my award."
Farah adds that Karan was sweet enough to even adjust his dates for her. "Initially I was to go for eight days to San Francisco but then he reduced it to four. It's always fun to work with Shahrukh, Kajol and Karan. Though I am very excited to be shooting with the gang again I can't stay without my babies for four days. I don't know what I am going to do."
But hasn't Karan always maintained that MNIK is a songless film? "It's a montage song with the song and music playing in the background. Shahrukh and Kajol won't have much movement or steps to do," she explains. Farah had also directed a song on Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan for Kites. Avers Farah, "The song picturised on Barbara and Hrithik was a proper salsa dance number — hot and sensuous."
