Bollywood filmmaker Farah Khan has opted to choose a younger actor for her next film over her long time pal and superstar Shah Rukh Khan

Farah Khan who has had an on-off friendship with Shah Rukh Khan may have just ditched him for her next film and is on the lookout for a younger actor. Shah Rukh Khan apparently had issues with the script offered to him and took a lot of time with it. According to a story in Deccan Chronicle it seems like choreographer-director Farah Khan waited for a while, but now she wants to move on in her career without casting her best friend Shah Rukh Khan.
Farah and Shah Rukh are as close as siblings, but SRK has not been having the time to work on Farah's next film. It’s also because King Khan is not too happy with the quality of the film dished out to him.
So, now Farah wants to cast a younger actor in her next film and make changes depending on whom she is casting.
"Farah has been busy with her TV shows of late, and hence has not been disturbed with her work schedule. But once her show is over, she wants to start her film and hence has decided to look beyond Shah Rukh for the film. She had done it earlier with Tees Maar Khan, but failed because the film with Akshay Kumar flopped badly. This time she wants a younger actor in the film," says a trade source.
Farah has directed films like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om and Happy New Year earlier with Shah Rukh Khan.
