MUMBAI - Now that her “Tees Maar Khan” is over and done with, filmmaker Farah Khan is all set indulge in her first love, choreography. She’s been asked by Aamir Khan to choreograph a song for “Delhi Belly”.
Confirming her professional reunion with Aamir after 10 years, Farah says, “Yes, I’m doing a song for Aamir’s ‘Delhi Belly’ because he has asked me to.”
So, does this mean Farah is returning to choreography in a big way?
Retorts Farah, “Not at all! I don’t actively do choreography any more. Only a song here or there for friends. Besides Aamir’s song I will be doing the ‘Housefull 2′ numbers for my brother Sajid and, of course, my husband Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’. That’s it for now. No more choreography this year. I’m busy writing my next script.”
“Delhi Belly” was completed by director Abhinay Deo last year.
The project is as special to Aamir as his wife Kiran Rao’s “Dhobi Ghat” because it stars his nephew Imran Khan. The quirky film about a prodigal’s return to the capital has been described as a sex comedy.
The song choreographed by Farah Khan in “Delhi Belly” would be filmed on Imran Khan. Apparently Aamir wants the same feeling of youthful vibrancy in it that Farah had created for Aamir in the “Pehla nasha” number in “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar”.
“Pehla nasha” was the first song that Farah choreographed. After “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar”, she has choreographed only twice for Aamir, in “Sarfarosh” and “Dil Chahta Hai”.
Aamir’s attention is now turning towards its post-production work, now that Kiran Rao’s directorial debut “Dhobi Ghat” is about to release.
Deo has moved on to his next project, “Game”, for producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
