Farah Khan has been a choreographer, director and a judge on TV for a long time now, but she reveals that direction will always be her first love. Farah, who is currently seen on Lip Sing Battle, says, “I’m happy hosting shows that I’m a part of. However, now I am itching to return to direction, and will start directing when I get a good script.”

If there’s anyone who is unhappy with Farah taking up projects, it’s her three children. She says, “The moment my daughter sees there’s a light at the dressing table, she gets very upset. She will come running to me, and ask me when will I be back. Now I feel like I should give more time to my children.”

The TV judge, however, is grateful for her alternative career on the small screen. “Whenever I visit abroad, people recognise me it feels great. Above all, I get paid well on television. We need that money.” Going by the recent trends, it is Bollywood that isn’t getting the audience’s money, as big productions continue to deliver duds. “Audience is watching Netflix and Amazon that have fresh ideas. When viewers get to watch good content at home, why would they like to spend exorbitant amount to buy tickets and watch films?”
