In the latest version of the legendary love story, Shirin and Farhad seem to be all set to take over from the ‘dilwala’ and his ‘dulhaniya’

Ever since we first heard about Boman Irani and Farah Khan playing a lovey-dovey couple in Bela Sehgal Bhansali’s Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, we felt that it would be a killer combination. The first poster that featured Boman and Farah doing a Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…? made us smile…wide. But it was the theatrical trailer that convinced us that the film would be a laugh riot. At a promotional event yesterday the makers of Shirin Farhad… unveiled the new poster of the rom-com. It featured the leading pair posing like Shahrukh Khan and Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

The new lovebirds in B-town were seen having a ball, pulling each other’s legs at the event. While Farah was cribbing about having to wear makeup during the shoot of SFKTNP, Boman was raving about his love for his co-star. The duo looked dapper in their KKHH avatars, and as filmmaker Karan Johar who was also present at the event said, it was truly a ‘Rab ne bana di jodi’ (a match made in heaven). Farah quipped that it was difficult romancing Boman, and he retorted by saying that it is called good acting, his pretending to be in love with Farah.

KJo was evidently very pleased with the new poster. He said, “It feels stunning. I never thought I would see these visuals again after 14-15 years. The promos of the film have been fantastic. There is a sense of humour about it. That`s how Farah and Boman really are. I think it`s great and I am sure it will do really well and live up to its fantastic image.” We hear that the next poster of SFKTNP will feature Boman and Farah posing a la another legendary on-screen Bollywood couple. We wonder who it wil be… Any guesses?
