Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan may be the talk of the town’s theatres, but what’s surprising is that good friend Shah Rukh Khan (SRK), despite wishing the choreographer-director well, hasn’t yet seen her third directorial venture. This is Farah’s first film without him in the lead.
Sources close to Farah say she didn’t organise a private screening of the film for friends and family; the only one that was held was organised by UTV: "Farah and her cast and crew arrived halfway through the film’s screening. They were promoting the film in multiple cities, and Farah had no time to invite anyone personally."
SRK, on the other hand, reveals he has been busy shooting a song at Filmistan, Goregaon and hasn’t had the time to watch the movie.
The choreographer on his song, though, isn’t old pal Farah but Ganesh Hegde. When asked to comment on this, SRK says, "It’s his kind of song. Sometimes, professionally, you need to think who suits the job profile best. Ganesh is doing a very good job of it. And even if I work with Ganesh, or Farah decides to work with Akshay, it doesn’t change my equations with her. We’re still friends and will always be. I’ll support her whenever she needs me and I know she’ll stand by me."
Rumour has it that SRK appeared solo on Koffee With Karan 3, and said that he’d like Farah and Salman Khan to apologise to him. Denying this outright, SRK clarifies, "No way; I didn’t say this. Someone has misconstrued what I said. I’m not the kind who’d ask colleagues, friends and acquaintances to apologise to me for anything. And likewise, I don’t need to apologise to anyone because I have no enemies, and have done no wrong to anyone."
SRK had also wished Farah well at a press conference before Tees Maar Khan released: “Farah is talented. She makes her films with great conviction and I’m sure Tees Maar Khan will do well.” Apart from working on two films presently — Don 2 and his home production Ra.One — the superstar is also preparing to shoot a stunt-based promo of his new show on Imagine, Zor Ka Jhatka. To which he says, “I don’t want people to see me making a fool of myself, but the channel insists that I prepare and understand what a contestant will go through in the show’s course. So, I guess, I have to be game!”
