Mumbai: Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan finds it funny that she is now also dabbling in acting. Farah has moved from behind the camera to being in front of it with the film ‘Shirin Farhad ki Nikal Padi’, and has been cast opposite Boman Irani.
She admits she is amused whenever she says she is acting, but her co-star Boman helps her get along with it. "I find it very funny when I say that I am acting in a film. Now that I am acting, Boman is my acting coach and he literally holds my hands and tells me what to do and how to do it," the 47-year-old said while unveiling the Zoroastrian calendar ‘Zyng’, along with Boman.
Talking about the film, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Boman said: “The film is a romantic love story of people who are in their mid-40s.”
Farah also chipped in with her typical tongue-in-cheek style and said: “It is a romantic-comedy as our love story automatically becomes a comedy.”
Meanwhile, Farah`s next production ‘Joker’, starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, is expected to release Aug 30.
And Boman has a line-up of releases like ‘Ek Main aur Ekk Tu’, ‘Tezz’, ‘Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai’ and ‘Housefull 2’ this year.
