Farah Khan, whose last directorial attempt was 2014’s Happy New Year, said she is planning to direct a film next year, which will be produced by Rohit Shetty via his banner Rohit Shetty Picturez.
Filmmaker Farah Khan trusts film industry is not male-dominated now a days and functions on a business model where an artist who brings in more money becomes a superstar.
At the launch of Kaveree Bamzai’s book, No Regrets: The Guilt-less Woman’s Guide To A Good Life on Friday, Farah was asked if men still drive the showbiz, to which she replied, “No. I don’t think so.”
“It is about who brings in the enough money. You have to criticism the rest of the country for that, because who designs the movies? It is not the industry, it is the country, it is the people, who want to go and watch the movie.
“So whoever brings the greatest money will be the superstar. The minute women start getting big oppose they will be the superstars. It is a business model,” she added.
Farah was one of the first female directors making prevailing commercial Hindi films.
When asked if there are things that she had to change in herself to be heard in the industry, Farah said that “I did not change anything about myself, which I think was good. I was a riotous and I would say what I felt was right and in the long run, it helped me. Because over the years people saw this is how I am. People will obtain you as you are, give them some time. If you start changing yourself then you lose yourself.”
The choreographer-filmmaker, whose last directorial attempt was 2014’s Happy New Year, said she is planning to direct a film next year.
In February this year, it was formally declared that Farah will helm a film, which will be produced by Rohit Shetty via his banner Rohit Shetty Picturez.
There have been beliefs that the two are working on a remake of megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s 1982 film Satte Pe Satta.
“There is a lot of belief, I don’t know if I am making this film. We don’t know what we are making,” she said.
