Farah Khan just made the best use of her association with filmmaker Karan Johar for her debut film as lead actress opposite Boman Irani- Shirin Farhad ki toh Nikal Padi. The first poster of the upcoming film had Farah and Boman posing like Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan from Hum Aapke Hai Kaun?
So when it came to making the next big poster, Farah made sure that the movie they took a spin off from was just as iconic. Think of love-stories of the 90s and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is probably the first to come to your mind. Well, it certainly did strike first on Farha's mind, and that's why you'll see her and Boman posing like Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan, complete with a basketball and the tracksuits! "I was a lot more at ease in a tracksuit. I was telling Boman that even though he was dressed like Shah Rukh in KKHH, he was acting like SRK from My Name is Khan. We were really like two mental people," said the choreographer.
"Sanjay Leela Bhansali invoted Madhuri for the first look," adds Farah, "so I told him I'll get Karan for this. When I spoke to him, he was thrilled. I;m sure he must have had a mini heart-attack after seeing it!"
Karan apparently was pretty impressed by the poster and we have to admit, so are we!
Shirin Farhad ki Toh Nikal Padi may seem like a love story between a 40-plus couple, but by what we're making out of the posters, it's for those young at heart!
