Farah: I am expecting him to hold my finger when I am acting

She made alot of actors dance on her fingers, now its her time to do so,

Farah Khan who has always been behind the camera will face the camera now, Though she has faced the camera earlier but it was portraying herself, but this time She is acting in a film as the lead,

Its a directed by Debutent Bela who is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s sister, This will be Farah Khan’s Debut as a Lead Actress,

Farah said,

I have been offered roles before but they were mainly cameos where I played myself, case in point being ‘Khichdi’ and ‘Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’ where I enacted the role of a film director. This is not the case in ‘Shirin Farhad’ as I get to play the title role.

I directed Boman in ‘Main Hoon Naa’ when he had just started off as an actor. I guess it’s time for him to pay back”, laughs Farah as she gets ready for the ‘lights, camera and action’, though this time on the receiving end, “I am expecting him to hold my finger when I am acting. He is the veteran here after all.

This is a challenge for Farah as she will be working opposite talented actor Boman Irani who plays the title character Farhad in the film.

Shirin Farhad will go on floor October 2011 and will end by November 2011 end.
