Farah Khan is delighted to be one of the 100 Most Promising Directors

Farah Khan can’t believe she has been handpicked as one of the 100 most promising emerging new directorial talent in the world in a film anthology entitled Take 100: The Future Of Film 100 New Directors.

Says Farah happily, “I am just toooo toooo happy. In our country we don’t value talent until it gets endorsed from the outside. I didn’t even know about this until (film critic) Khalid Mohamed told me. Can you imagine, if he hadn’t told me I would’ve never known! It’s such an honour because I’m the only Indian director among the 100 who have been chosen. ”

Farah’s happiness is manifold. “It’s not a small thing because the directors have been chosen by the ten well-known film-festival directors from across the world. Cameron Bailey of the Toronto Film Festival selected my film Om Shanti Om.”

The best compliment that Farah got for this singular honour came from Karan Johar.
Says Farah with a poker face, “Yeah Karan wanted to know if husband Shirish Kunder wrote this book.”

Farah is unfazed by the fact that her last film received a lot of flak. “So what if many people didn’t like Tees Maar Khan? It doesn’t really bother me. One just has to accept the fact that sometimes one succeeds, sometimes one fails.”
