Farah Khan Shahrukh Khan's closest friend will soon be seen on his arch enemy Salman Khan's show 10 Ka Dum alongwith her Om Shanti Om leading lady Deepika Padukone. Farah has always drawn a very clear line between her friends and her work. She doesn't let one aspect affect the other.
After choreographing a song on Sallu's home production Main Aur Mrs Khanna, on Monday, she shot for an episode of 10 Ka Dum. Farah confirms, "Yes, I am appearing on DKD. The channel people asked me as I am already judging their show, Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.
I was earlier supposed to go with Sajid Khan or my husband Shirish (Kunder) and Deepika was to come with Saif to promote Love Aaj Kal but that didn't work out, so we are going together. I don't think Salman knows I'm coming on the show. He'll know when I go there."
Farah is appearing on the show for a cause, "I hope to win a certain amount of money. I am a member of the board of trustees of the NGO Sneha. They work for the education of slum children, empowerment of women living in slums, teach them about health, making them self-reliant in the process, through various self-employment techniques."
She adds, "I learnt about it from a school friend. Sneha is being run by a doctor who gave up her job in Sion Hospital to work for the women and children. If I win Rs 10 to 50 lakh, it will be great as they need to survive. I'm in charge of fund-raising and creating awareness for the NGO."
All seems to be well between Deepika and Farah now. Last year, she was upset with Deepika for not keeping in touch after OSO. Says Farah, "Deepika's a sweet girl and we have been bonding a lot over the last year. In fact, Ranbir and Deepika have come to my home a number of times." All's well that ends well.
