Mumbai: Once thick friends, choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan and SRK have gone separate ever since the former started bonding with his nemesis Salman Khan. Buzz has it that for the first time ever, Farah chose not to choreograph SRK’s ‘Ra.One’ as she is too busy with her own project ‘Tees Maar Khan’.

Apparently, for the past one decade, Farah choreographed every film that SRK produced, including ‘Ashoka’, ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’, ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Kaal’, ‘Paheli’, ‘Main Hoon Na’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’. Indeed, it was Farah who went ahead and experimented with SRK’s looks while making him go shirt-less and sport a six-pack in ‘Om Shanti Om’. However, this time around, it seems that Farah’s name will not appear in the credit list of ‘Ra. One’.

Talking to a news daily, a source said, "The benefit of doubt in this situation is that Farah does have an alibi. She has been slogging her life out for ‘Tees Maar Khan’. She is also a mother to three and so automatically can`t devote so much time as she used to earlier. Moreover, the post production of her movie will also take a lot of her time and then she will get into publicity designs and promotions. However, the other side of the coin is that Farah has always worked like a machine. When she was choreographing for 10 films a year, she always had that extra time for SRK. She did a song for Salman`s ‘Dabangg’ (Munni Badnaam Hui) despite her ‘Tees Maar Khan’ schedule. Farah`s absence is indeed raising a lot of eyebrows and people are bound to draw conclusions that all is not well despite what both of them have to say about each other at press events."

Rumour has it that SRK will be getting a Hollywood choreographer for ‘Ra.One’.
