Farah Khan is searching for the "right face" opposite Shah Rukh Khan for her film Happy New Year.
Khan said she is yet to decide on the female lead opposite
Shah Rukh for her new project Happy New Year.
"I am yet to find the heroine. I am looking for the
right face and would tell you shortly when we find her," said
Farah on the sets of a TV dance show, here.
Farah, 48, said he chose Shah Rukh for the film because he
fits into the character.
"It is an automatic choice - Shah Rukh. Not because he is
my close buddy, but he fits into the role."
Farah, who also made her acting debut last year with
Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, helmed many masala films
like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om and Tees Maar Khan.
Farah has recently choreographed the IPL's new theme song
Dil Jumping Zapaak and says the number is a tribute to
singing legend Kishore Kumar.
"It has already become a chartbuster and is actually a
tribute to the uninhibited singing style of Kishoreda (Kishore
Kumar). The peppy nature of the track and choreography has
the look and feel of Kishoreda's timeless funny songs," Farah
She said she is happy with the way Indian women are
grooming themselves now, "both homemakers and career
"I feel proud to be a mom and a woman, we are gifted.
Women have the innate ability to make their mark in the field
of aesthetics. No need for any expert help," Farah said.
