Shah Rukh showers praise on Farah
Megastar Shah Rukh Khan Tuesday launched the music and third poster of choreographer-director Farah Khan's debut film as an actor "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi" here and praised her as one of the finest directors
Shah Rukh, who is a very good friend of Farah, said: "She is one of the most finest and talented director we have with us. I thank Farah for giving me some nicest moment in her films." Farah Khan and Boman Irani recreated the magic of characters Simran and Raj of "Dilwale Dhulaniya Le Jayenge" (DDLJ) in a poster.
Shah Rukh who had come to unveil the third poster of "Shirin Farhad..." told reporters that no one could recreate the magic of his most iconic romantic film of all time, "DDLJ". "I have seen spoofs of all movies created by others but I never thought one would ever think of making a spoof on 'DDLJ'," Shah Rukh said. The 1995 blockbuster romantic film "DDLJ" had Shah Rukh and Kajol in the lead.
Shah Rukh along with Boman and Farah performed a jig on stage, where the megastar played Raj of "DDLJ", Farah played Simran and Boman played Amrish Puri. "Shirin Farhad..." directed by Bela Sehgal is a romantic-comedy of 40-plus couple - Boman and Farah. "I think love can happen at any age...it has no age. There is no right time and right place for love...it can happen any time," Shah Rukh said.
"We have seen love stories made with young teenagers but this one is different. I have seen the posters and promo of this film and I really loved it. It is a marvellous love story. I am sure this film will rock. I am sure people will connect with this film," he added. "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi" will release Aug 24.
