Filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan has yet again taken a sly dig at Bollywood celebrities for posting workout videos during the crucial times of the novel coronavirus outbreak in the world.
During an interview with senior film journalist Rajeev Masand, Farah said even though she is aware that Bollywood is not known to be an industry of “deep thinking,” those videos seemed “a little shallow” to her.
“I want to apologize to everybody who got scared. I know I took off. Please workout. I walk one hour around the balcony every day. I was disturbed by the frivolity of the situation. It’s not a global party guys, it’s a global pandemic.
“There are other things you can do right now, there was a glut of everyone wanting to be seen, and wanting to be on Insta. It seemed a little shallow. We already don’t have a great reputation for being an industry that is deep thinking, even though a lot of people do so much good and contribution. It just seemed like everything was about ‘look at me, look at me,‘” she said.
Without mentioning any specific names, Farah had criticised Bollywood stars in an Instagram video, saying that the people around the world have “bigger concerns” than working out during the ongoing global pandemic.
On the work front, Farah has transitioned from being a celebrated choreographer to a prolific filmmaker with Om Shanti Om and Main Hoon Na among others.
