Mumbai: Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, who is known to make films with established actors said on Tuesday that her next film is a girl-centric film which doesn’t have any stars in it.
Farah Khan told IANS, “I have written a script and this time its a small script, and it’s not star-driven. It’s a two girls project so still waiting for it to happen because I have not put a big star in it.”
“It was easier for me to get a 100-crore project green-lit but a 20-crore project is taking time because it doesn’t have a star,” she added.
Farah is known for her big budget star-driven films including “Main Hoon Na”, “Om Shanti Om”, “Tees Maar Khan” and “Happy New Year”.
When asked will it be with newcomers, she said: “No it’s not with newcomers then I will not even get 20 cr. It’s a girl-centric film and we do have a working title but we don’t want to give it out right now.”
Farah says working with stars is easier because one tend to work a little less on the content because you have a big star in the film.
She says, “The thing is stars make it easier for the project to be green-lit. Otherwise, everyone will question your script 100 times if you have a star saying yes to it give that newspaper cutting and nobody will ask any question that’s the good side and a bad side to it. You tend to work a little less on the content because you have a big star driving on it sometimes.”
“That opening is for sure. With other movies you don’t know it can die in a week. If it’s a great movie by word of mouth it grows but that’s 1 in 100. I think that’s why not only here even in Hollywood when an actor becomes a star and has a certain amount of equity, name everyone wants to cash on it,” she added.
