Farah Khan hasn't been in the director's chair in a while, but the multi-faceted personality is hoping to call for action soon. She explained to Mid Day that she is aware she has been straying from the path. But, hopefully, this year, as COVID lasted two years.

Prior to that, the filmmaker-choreographer was content with her life, watching her children grow up and travelling. But now Farah is feeling the desire to make a movie again. 

Farah's last film as a director was Happy New Year, released in 2014. The film featured Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek A Bachchan, Sonu Sood, and Boman Irani in the lead roles. It was one of the highest-grossing films of that year.

When asked if she would do a pan-Indian film, Farah responded by saying that her films are consistently pan-Indian. When she was doing Main Hoon Na, the filmmaker was told it was the first time Shah Rukh Khan's film had gone pan-India—that is, his films usually only worked in A centres, but this one also worked in B, C, and D. That's probably what "pan-India" means.

It's been a long time since Farah directed a film. When questioned if her upcoming directorial is a remake of the Satte Pe Satta movie, she said not right now as the film is on the backburner. However, the ace choreographer assured us that she would be helming a film soon.

Meanwhile, Farah will co-host the 22nd edition of the IIFA in Abu Dhabi with Aparshakti Kkhurana. Several celebs, namely Salman Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Sara Ali Khan, Ananya Panday, and others, have touched down on Yas Island for the IIFA 2022 weekend. 

Talking more about Farah, the filmmaker-choreographer has directed four films, namely Main Hoon Na (2004), Om Shanti Om (2007), Tees Maar Khan (2010), and Happy New Year (2014).
