'I hate writing movies'

With a Diwali release starring the 'Badshah of Bollywood' Shah Rukh Khan, competition from two directors at home (Sajid Khan and Shirish Kunder) and three babies on the way, Farah Khan is a very busy woman.

Talking to her and seeing her juggle so many responsibilities makes one wonder how she manages to deal with all of it without losing her trademark witty humor.

Komal Mehta caught up with the busy filmmaker on more dope about the film:

Can you tell us something about Om Shanti Om?

What would you like to know about OSO in specific?

For instance, why is it named so?

It has been named so for different reasons. In fact you can visit the film's website for answers to all questions on OSO.

Which part of the movie was conceived first -- the rebirth (modern) part or the 70's failure part?

It is a story, so it went in order. But yes the rebirth part was conceived first.

And so you decided to place it in the 1970s film industry?


Main Hoon Na was a typical Bollywood potboiler, so is Om Shanti Om like that as well?

I do not like the term potboiler. What does it mean? Whatever it means I don't know.
