With all the Happy New Year rumours, starring Shahrukh Khan, doing the rounds, Farah Khan of Om Shanti Om and Main Hoon Na fame, has surprised the media and the trade with this shocking announcement. No one really expected Farah to work with anyone except SRK, did we? Well, here’s some breaking news, Farah Khan has dumped SRK and instead will be directing none other than Akshay Kumar in her next!
According to Farah it is her husband Shirish Kunder’s script for the film titled Tees Maar Khan that did the trick. Says Shirish “I wrote this film with Akshay in mind. My first film Jaaneman was with him and we share a good rapport. Initially, I was supposed to direct Tees Maar Khan but since its our first home production, Farah and I decided that I’ll produce it and she’ll direct it.”
On Tees Maar Khan, Farah says “It’s my kind of film and has everything in it — action, comedy and full masala.”
With news of the Chopra’s ditching SRK for Ranbir and now Farah for Akshay, it will be interesting to see who SRK decides to work with in the future. It could be a blessing in disguise though, since SRK could very well risk working outside his group of friends at this stage of his career. Would be a refreshing change.
What’s also interesting is, the Akshay – Farah combo. If Farah’s success ratio in the past is anything to go by, Akki fans can rejoice!
