Mumbai: Director Farah Khan has denied that she has spoofed choreographer Saroj Khan in her latest Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Happy New Year'.
Saroj Khan is reportedly upset with the way Farah, who had earlier angered Manoj Kumar with a spoof in 'Om Shanti Om', has shown her in the hit movie.
"I love Saroj ji. I learnt from her. She is an iconic figure. It was not her whom we have shown in the film. If she feels that it was she then I think we love her from the bottom of my heart,"
Farah said during the launch of a new video of the song 'Sharabi'.
The video launch of the song was attended by Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone, Vivaan Shah, Boman Irani and Sonu Sood.Padukone's name appears in the credits before SRK in 'Happy New Year' and the actress says she was touched by the gesture. Her name appeared before the actor in their previous film 'Chennai Express' too.
"It was a weird feeling and at the same time I liked because it was not a one time commitment. It's not about gender... The simple way to give the title is follow the alphabets but saying that I find Shah Rukh's gesture very graceful," Padukone said.
