SRK can wait, kids can't

Last updated on: June 25, 2009 10:57 IST

Another name for Farah Khan would be master juggler. The choreographer turned filmmaker juggles can really multitask between her professional commitments like direction, choreography, acting and judging reality shows, and taking care of her triplets -- Czar, and daughters Diva and Anya.

Farah, who is currently judging a reality show Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, said, "My house is very close to the sets of the show (Yashraj Studio) so I bring my children with me. Everyone is so warm on the sets which makes it easy for me to judge this show."

The triplets are also starting school next week and Farah doesn't want to miss accompanying them to school. "My kids have grown up. Now they are one year and four months old and will be going to toddler's school from next week. I will be accompanying them to the school thrice in a week. The kids grow up so fast. Now I want to spend as much time with them as possible," she said.

Talking about their personality, she said, "Though they are born a minute apart, they're completely different. My son wants what the daughters have. The girls are bonding very well and are playing with each other.

Talking about the show, she said, "We have got an excellent response for this show.  I was quite surprised to know that Shah Rukh Khan liked the show. I really don't know how he gets the time to watch television. I guess his son Aryan must have liked the show and that is why he saw it because SRK normally doesn't watch TV."

After wrapping up the show Farah will head to the US for Karan Johar's My Name is Khan which stars Shah Rukh and Kajol. "I have a 4-5 days schedule for My Name is Khan where I'm choreographing a song. Karan was sweet enough to even adjust his dates for me. Initially I was to go for eight days to San Francisco but then he reduced it to four. Though I am very excited to be shooting with the gang again, I can't stay without my babies for four days. I don't know what I am going to do," she added.

After her commitment to My Name is Khan, Farah plans to concentrate fully on her kids. "I will dedicate my full time to my kids. I want to see them growing up. Films and other such promises will keep coming in future but this time with kids will not," she said.

Speaking about her cameo in Milab Javeri's film Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai, Farah said, "They told me it's a cameo and made me shoot for six days. I asked them whether I was the second lead of the film [smiles]. I went for the dubbing which has come out well. I can play only myself because I am a bad actor."

Talking about her new project Happy New Year, she stated, "Things are shaping up slowly. My script will be ready by the end of July."

Farah is also doing a chat show for a popular channel but didn't give any details.
