Though her colleagues may well cherish the titles of 'Maa' (read: Geeta Maa) and 'Dada', Grand Master of the show Dance India Dance Little Masters, Farah wants to stay as far away as she can from the title 'Aunty'.
Says Ms. Khan, "At first, they were all very formal and scared, but as they kids have been interacting with us for a while now, and have gotten into the Final 16, for some reason they suddenly started calling me Aunty. Now, I may be a mother of three children myself, but I don't think I'm old enough to be called Aunty (chuckles)!!"
Unlike her contemporaries, it seems Farah is a bit more conscious about such things, and quips that she has told all the kids to call her didi... and not 'Maa' or 'Aunty' or else she'll cut their marks. "Well, of course I'm joking about cutting marks, but seriously, mujhe Aunty mat kehna, haan...", says the no-nonsense judge.
Well, Farah-ji, whether they call you 'Maa' or 'Aunty' or 'Didi' or 'M'am', one thing is for sure, these kids really look up to you.
