Mumbai, Jan 13 (Calcutta Tube) Choreographer-director Farah Khan seems to be on a patch up spree – first she hugs and make with Shah Rukh Khan, then buries the hatchet with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and all at award functions.
‘We hugged at the awards function. When I went backstage for my media bytes, his van was parked right there. His spot boy saw me and opened his van’s door. So naturally I just popped my head in,’ Farah Said without specifying the award ceremony.
Earlier at another awards function last week, Shah Rukh had invited Farah to meet her backstage. ‘That time I couldn’t. This time I did,’ said Farah who teamed up with Shah Rukh for her directorial debut ‘Main Hoon Na’, which was a super duper hit. She roped him again for her next film ‘Om Shanti Om’, again a big hit.
But for her third venture ‘Tees Maar Khan’, she opted for Akshay Kumar and it was reported that it created a crack in their friendship.
At the same awards function, Farah took her renewed friendship with Bhansali to another level. They had fallen out during the Friday feud over ‘Saawariya’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’, but had begun the process of reconciliation last year.
At the awards function, Bhansali and Farah got a chance to bond under very peculiar circumstances. Both were stranded on stage waiting for their awards when, like two shipwrecked soldiers deserted on an island, they stuck up a muffled conversation.
Laughs Farah: ‘It was really funny. Sanjay, Akshay Kumar and I were called up. Then we stood there for a good 20 minutes while a long audio-visual was shown. Then there were some speeches. Then Akki got his award and left the stage.’
That left Bhansali and Farah to make the best of one another’s company. The two decided to have lunch together later this week.
‘Would you believe, Sanjay has still not seen my children?’ Farah cribs good naturedly.
One wonders whom Farah will patch up with next. Saroj Khan, maybe!!
