The actor's new look was unveiled recently. Shahrukh, 48, who
had undergone a similar transformation for Farah's 'Om Shanti
Om', had jokingly tweeted, "And this one is by @DabbooRatnani.
Thanx my friend. And thanx @avigowariker. Now Farah don't exploit
Farah said she made SRK work hard on his body because she loved
presenting him in a 'macho' avatar.
"He was joking when he said 'Farah stop exploiting me'. He loves
being exploited by me. If there is one person who exploits him
beautifully, it is me. He tells me 'you are the only woman director
who presents me as a macho hero'. He has this image of a romantic
hero but I have my own idea about the way I want him to look in my
films," Farah told PTI over phone from Mumbai.
The director says she kept shifting the shooting of opening
sequence and filmed it in the last.
"We kept silent on it for a long time because he worked on it
very hard. We kept shifting the intro till he was ready. We shot it
at the end. They are actually ten packs but we are saying eight. In
my next film he will have ten pack abs," Farah, 49, said.
The director is currently working on the post production of the
movie, her third with Shahrukh after 'Om Shanti Om' and
'Main Hoon Na'.
Also starring Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan,
Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah, the film, produced by SRK's
Red Chillies Entertainment, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil
and Telugu on October 24.
