The Bollywood maestro has spoken. Holding an experience of over two-and-a-half decades to her credit, filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan feels Indian cinema has evolved for the better. According to her, changing times have seen today’s actresses being looked after more than yesteryear heroines. And it’s not just one reason that makes her feel this way. While she believes they are as hard working as their previous counterparts, Farah has no qualms in admitting the new crop of actresses have it much easier on multiple fronts. These include celebrity trainers, vanity vans and personal managers. Need we say, we are in complete agreement with her!
"I feel today, everything is looked after much more, though I don't see any lack of hard work on the part of today's girls. They are as hardworking as the girls earlier. It is just that the girls earlier had to do a lot more. They did not have personal trainers, managers or vanity vans. They had to work harder in a sense," said Farah, who has worked with actresses spanning generations as a director and choreographer. From Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Tabu and Malaika Arora to Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, Farah has come to know the Indian film industry inside out.
When it comes to dancing, Farah posed a diplomatic stance. "It's been 25 years and I have choreographed Sridevi and Madhuri and also the girls of today. You can't compare them to today’s actresses,” she continued. What she enjoys the most, however, is making her own film. Speaking about it, Farah stated, "What I enjoy most is making my own film, which I am looking forward to this year. I enjoy it a lot but it is also a tiring process especially when you have three children. I am a hands-on mother, so I take long gaps between films. For me, that is the most creatively satisfying process.” She is reportedly all set to remake megastar Amitabh Bachchan's Satte Pe Satta, which released in 1982.
