Farah Khan, last seen on the judging panel of Zee TV‘s DID L’il Masters, will now be seen judging Sony TV’s Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega with Anu Malik starting on Monday, August 16th. “This is actually my tenth TV show,” she says. “I have done seasons of Indian Idol, Dance India Dance, Entertainment ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega and Tere Mere Beech Mein. And I am enjoying this!”
Farah Khan, mother of three kids, shared her thoughts on managing her home and career together. “Sometimes when my kids fall ill, I [wonder] ‘why am I doing all this things if my kids are not well?’ At that moment, I think that I should leave everything.” So why does Farah take up reality shows if she feels it is difficult to manage? “Well, I take all those realities which are shot near my house – even ‘Entertainment Ke…’ is being shot at Yash Raj, which is quite near to my house,” explains Farah.
Farah Khan is seen judging many reality shows on TV these days. “Actually season three of ‘Entertainment…’ is my 10th year to judge a reality show. If you count the shows and their seasons since ‘Indian Idol,’ ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Dancing Star,’ ‘Nach Baliye 4,’ and so on, and now with this season 2 of ‘Entertainment…,’ it is my 10th year to be on the judges panel. But after this season of ‘Entertainment…’ I am going to take a break, otherwise not only I but the audience also will feel bored to see the same face again and again,” says an overwhelmed Farah.
However, she admits that TV didn’t come naturally to her. “I learnt if from Sajid.” Farah’s brother Sajid judged for the first time with India’s Got Talent Season 2. “I went to his shows and picked it up from him. He taught me how to behave and be more interesting on TV. Now I can say I am pretty good,” she adds.
When asked how she feels about her brother judging another show, she said, “When it comes to judging, I am senior to Sajid. Though I think that Sajid can give better tips to the contestants, I can judge a person in a more proper manner.”
Do the kids recognize mommy on screen? “No, as they are two and half years old, for them there are two mommies. One is without make up, which they see at home and one is on-screen mamma with make up. But yes, they can make out Sajid when they see him on hoardings. They say that this is Sajid Mama (Uncle)”.
Best of luck to Farah, her family, and her career!
