Shah Rukh is always experimental, says Farah Khan

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Choreographer-filmmaker says her friend and superstar is always open to experiment with his roles on the big screen.

"Shah Rukh is always experimental with his role as an actor. He is the same actor who did a film like 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa', 'Asoka', 'Chak De! India' and 'Swades' and other so-called commercially successful films," Farah told IANS here.

"I think media and critics are acknowledging this more these days than earlier, and they praise a star when they do such experimental roles in films," added Farah, who has worked with SRK in hit massy films like "Main Hoon Na", "Om Shanti Om" and "Happy New year".

Is she interested in making a content-driven film?

She said: "What makes you think that a successful mainstream film does not have content? It is a wrong perception. I would say that all my films have more content than a 'content-driven film'. It is not easy to make such films. I would never want to do a content-driven film with a box office life of Rs 20 crore."

However, Farah agreed that sometimes in a Shah Rukh or Amitabh Bachchan-starring film, audiences tend to focus on the star rather than the story and perhaps that is how the differentiation happened.
