Judging reality shows is an ‘absolute relief’ for Farah Khan

Choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan says she enjoys judging reality shows because it gives her a break from the role of a filmmaker.

Filmmaker Farah Khan has been a judge on nine reality shows so far and she does not mind juggling between her duties as a filmmaker and a judge on the small screen.

“When I make a movie, I don’t do any shows because the focus is completely on the film but when I take up a show, it’s an absolute relief! I am on the other side of the camera. When I am making a movie, I am very casual; wearing chappals, and have my hair tied. However, when I am judging a show, I take care of myself and get the makeup and hair done,” says Farah, who will soon be seen judging singing reality show, Indian Idol.

The 51-year-old, who has helmed films such as Main Hoon Na(2004) , Om Shanti Om (2007) and Happy New Year (2014), says, “I am happy judging shows and making films. It is a good thing to do a film and then take up a show, considering it also keeps your popularity alive.”

Farah who is making a women centric film says she is not following any trend. “When my co-writer Anvite (Dutt Guptan) came to me with a rough script, I really liked it. It is more difficult to make film which does not have a big name. People start questioning the cast and the budget,” she adds.
