Glad that parents encouraged me to pursue a career, says Farah Khan
Ace Bollywood choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan is thankful to her parents for having pushed her to focus on her career when she wanted to settle down and get married at 21
Farah is known for choreographing several hit songs including 'Pehla Nasha' 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena', 'Idhar Chala Main Udhar Chala', 'Munni Badnaam Hui', 'Sheila Ki Jawani', 'Anarkali Disco Chali', 'Fevicol Se' among others. She simultaneously turned film director with 'Om Shanti Om' in 2007 and also debuted as an actor last year with 'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi'.
Presently, Farah is judging dance reality show DID Super Moms along with choreographer Marzi Pestonji. "Seeing these young mothers on screen it makes me think that had I not gotten into Bollywood, I too would have been happily married and had kids by the time I was in my twenties," Farah said. But the filmmaker is thankful to her parents for their support and encouragement. "Had it not been for my parents, I would have definitely gotten married at the age of 21.
I too, had planned on getting married after turning 21, but it was my parents who asked me to concentrate on building a career as well," she said. The dance reality show is aired on Zee TV every Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM.
