Mumbai: Choreographer-director Farah Khan will once again work with her
close friend Shahrukh Khan in Happy New
Year. But the director says she is yet to decide on the
female lead opposite Shahrukh for the movie. "I am yet to find the
heroine. I am looking for the right face and would tell you shortly
when we find her," said Farah on the sets of DID Supermom,
a TV dance show, here.
Farah (48), said she chose Shahrukh for the film because he fits
into the character. "It is an automatic choice - Shahrukh. Not
because he is my close buddy, but he fits into the role." Farah,
who also made her acting debut last year with Shirin Farhad Ki
Toh Nikal Padi, helmed many masala films like Main Hoon
Na, Om Shanti Om and Tees Maar Khan. She has
recently choreographed the IPL's new theme song 'Dil Jumping
Zapaak' and says the number is a tribute to singing legend Kishore
Kumar. "It has already become a chartbuster and is actually a
tribute to the uninhibited singing style of Kishore da (Kishore
Kumar). The peppy nature of the track and choreography has the look
and feel of Kishore da's timeless funny songs," Farah said.
She said that she is happy with the way Indian women are
grooming themselves now "both homemakers and career ladies". "I
feel proud to be a mom and a woman, we are gifted. Women have the
innate ability to make their mark in the field of aesthetics. No
need for any expert help," Farah said.
