Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan says she was taught the technicalities of choreography for her debut song ‘Pehla Nasha’ in the Aamir Khan-starrer Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander by none other than the superstar himself.

“It was a great experience for me to do ‘Pehla Nasha’. It was my first song and I was taking over from a very big choreographer Saroj Khan and I was the fourth assistant there. One person who really helped me a lot that time was Aamir Khan,” she told reporters here at an event.

“He literally used to teach me what are camera lenses, so he taught me the basics and technicalities. I must thank him for that. He didn’t act like a star,” she said.

Farah has joined hands with Shashi Ranjan’s ITA School of Performing Arts to design a first of its kind choreography course in India.

“People have often asked me when will I open dance class. I don’t like dance classes, I had no interest in that. I wanted to do a choreography course and so this one,” she said.

“It’s a 12-week course on how to shoot, choreograph and direct a film song….this course will teach you how to direct a song for a film,” she added.

Next year Farah will complete 25 years in the industry. She said she has always been inspired by directors like Vijay Anand, V Shantaram, and Guru Dutt.

“When I used to watch Vijay Anand’s choreography I used to get inspired by it. And also songs of V Shantaram and Guru Dutt inspire me. Saroj Khan is a talented choreographer. I get inspired by good work,” she added.

Though a lot of fuss is now made over actresses going to Hollywood, the Happy New Year helmer has been to the West as the choreographer when no one went.

“I went there when nobody went. I did a song for Bombay Dreams’. Jackie Chan also chose me for his upcoming film,” she said.

“They don’t have song and dance culture, so when they think of dance they call me, and I am glad they think about me. It’s our birthright to have song and dance in our films!”

B-town heroines like Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, and others are in the news over their remuneration these days.

On this Farah said, “It is going beyond (big fees). I think now the trend is to talk about money. Like one would say how much money a film made then (talking about) how good a film is. One should talk about work and not money. It’s not a healthy trend.”
