Prominent Indian film director Farah Khan has appeared in a candid session during which the lady recalled one of her challenging experiences with acclaimed actor, Naseeruddin Shah during her first film debut: however, Farah also labeled him ‘Moody’ as he always been quite tough to her.

It is important to mention that Naseeruddin Shah has lately embraced wonderful memories after a glorious rebirth of one of his big films ‘Manthan’ during the extravagant film festival Cannes.

Moving on, in the latest rounds of events, during a conversation at the IFTDA Masterclass, Farah Khan shared an interesting casting anecdote from her first film ‘ Main Hoon Na.’ She initially offered the antagonist’s role to Naseeruddin who later denied which has unfortunately led the female star to great difficulty and approaching many others.

First, she preferred Kamal Haasan and Nana Patekar for the role, but they, too, declined. Eventually, she offered the role to Suniel Shetty, and he immediately agreed. In her words: “That’s a very long story. Naseer will kill me. I had first gone to Naseer to play the villain’s role. We went to many people for the villain’s role, which finally went to Suniel Shetty. We first went to Naseer, and he made a fuss, and you know how Naseer is, he is very moody. He said I can’t do it.”

Farah further mentioned that after casting the antagonist, she had again approached Naseeruddin Shah to play Shah Rukh’s father in Main Hoon Na, to which he complied. The filmmaker shared that being the moody person he is, Naseeruddin had troubled her a lot. Hence, she had made sure to complete his scenes within six days instead of ten. Recalling the incident, Farah added: “There was a 10-day role of Shah Rukh’s father, which I went back to Naseer. I said abhi yeh toh kar lo. Naseer ne mujhe itna tang kia ki maine 10 din ka role 6 din mein khatam kar dia. I said iska shooting jaldi khatam karo but after that he has been wonderful. I love Naseer. He’s like me, straightforward.”

Farah Khan talked about her feelings when Main Hoon Na was released

In the same interview, when the moderator asked Farah about her feelings on the eve of the release of her first directorial project, she shared a ‘not very good’ anecdote. She recalled that a national daily had published a review of Main Hoon Na giving it just one star. The filmmaker revealed that she felt like her whole world collapsed and she was bawling her eyes out.
