Foes can turn friends. In a town known for its fickle relationships, a strong bond has been formed between – believe it or faint – Farah Khan and Manoj Kumar.

The seasoned filmmaker had objected to the manner in which he had been represented in her blockbuster hit Om Shanti Om. Following a tea meeting between Manoj Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan, the matter was sorted. That wasn't the end of the story.

Manoj Kumar and his gracious wife Shashiji have become extremely fond of Farah, who is at home in Juhu on being advised bed rest till the date of delivery. She is expected to have triplets.

<b1>Lots in a name
Already, Manoj Kumar has suggested, after days of pondering, that the babies could be named Eet, Meet and Preet. If one of the triplets is a girl, she could be named Gangotri, the veteran has advised.

Farah Khan could not be reached for confirmation of this news.

When an HT Café reporter had run into her at a Juhu DVD rental library he had noticed that she was carrying copies of several Manoj Kumar classics including Clerk, Painter Babu and Kalyug ka Ramayan. On being asked why, she stated that Manoj Kumar has been her No 1 director since her childhood days.

Will Farah Khan choreograph the dance numbers in Naukrani: Maid in India, the film which Manoj Kumar intends to launch soon, she said, "I would love too. He's a legend."
