The choreographer-turned-director is busy shooting for her upcoming film Happy New Year
It was on this day 10 years back that choreographer Farah Khan’s debut directorial Main Hoon Na hit the screens. She can only look back at her pool of memories with a smile. ”Ten years of Main Hoon Na today,” Farah tweeted Wednesday.
She also thanked her friend and superstar Shahrukh Khan who played the lead in her film. ”Thank you Shahrukh Khan for changing the course of my life. In soooo many ways with MHN. You in a wet white shirt, under a waterfall my darling, was my gift to all the women in the world!” Main Hoon Na, Farah says, marked the first time that the film’s lead heroine Sushmita Sen wore a sari on screen. ”This scene was the first day of shoot for Sushmita Sen and the first time she wore a sari on screen,” Farah tweeted along with a picture of Sushmita’s introduction scene.
Main Hoon Na also stars Zayed Khan, Amrita Rao, Naseeruddin Shah, Kabir Bedi and Kirron Kher. The film set the platform for Farah and she next directed the superhit Om Shanti Om in 2007. She is currently busy directing Happy New Year, which also stars Shahrukh Khan.
