Animation is tough: Farah Khan

Says there’s a lot to learn before she tries to make movie

Choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan, known for making commercial potboilers, says she isn’t quite ready to take on animation.

“Animated genre is difficult and I feel the movies that I make also are for kids. I don’t have experience in making animation, so I have to learn animation first and then make it,” she said in a statement.

She might have not made any animated films, but she did support an upcoming animated film, Motu Patlu — King Of Kings, by hosting a special screening in Mumbai recently.

Khan also shared her personal connection with the film.

“Sometimes people call me and Shirish [her husband Shirish Kunder] Motu Patlu,” said the Happy New Year maker.

Motu Patlu: King of Kings, produced by Viacom18 Media Pvt Ltd, Cosmos Entertainment and Maya Digital Studios, and directed by Suhas D. Kadav, is about two best friends from Furfuri Nagar. These are popular characters from Hindi comic magazine Lotpot, and after a successful TV series on the same, its movie version is now set to enthral cinemagoers, courtesy Ketan Mehta, Deepa Sahi and Anish JS Mehta.

Its screening was attended by Manoj Bajpayee, Shreyas Talpade and Zayed Khan with their children. Khan’s brother, Sajid Khan, came with Kunal Kapoor.

Sajid said: “When I was a kid, people used to call me a cartoon. And now that I have grown older, people still call me cartoon.”
