Farah Khan Said She Likes Actresses When They Aren't Alive In An Old Video, Netizen Pens 'Misogyny'

Farah Khan is one of the most talented filmmakers in Bollywood. Thus, she has worked with a number of eminent stars and made many highly popular films. Some of her blockbuster hits were Om Shanti Om, Main Hoon Na, Tees Maar Khan, and Happy New Year, among others. However, now, we stumbled upon an old video of her, wherein she made an absurd statement about her liking towards the actresses. Soon, netizens started reacting to the same.

Farah Khan jokingly mentions if she indeed likes any actress

A Reddit user recently posted a video from one of the old episodes of Koffee With Karan, which was graced by Farah Khan alongside Sania Mirza. In the video, the show's host, Karan Johar, was heard asking his fellow filmmaker friend, who about her favourite actor in the industry. Soon, she named Shah Rukh Khan. Afterwards, Farah was quizzed about her favourite actress. To this, she was left wondering and mentioned:

To this, Karan again asked her, "Why? You don't like women I know." Interrupting him in between, Farah mentioned, "My favourite actress is Nutan ji." But Karan yet again asked her, "Someone alive?" To this, Farah jokingly replied, "Ohh, I like them better when they are not alive", and the three of them present over there were left in splits.

Netizens' reaction to Farah's statement on liking the actresses

Soon after the video was posted online, netizens couldn't stop themselves from reacting to it. One of them commented, "A lot of powerful women who made it in the earlier generation are like this IMO. It’s internalized misogyny." Another person mentioned, "Farah is playing power dynamics. She can't offend actors because they are powerful and her friends." Another comment can be read as:

"I have observed this with Farah. She doesn't like women. Karan is on point with this one. She is always condescending towards ladies but very sweet and generous with compliments for men."

Farah Khan talked about earlier times when heroines used to change behind the trees using towels

Recently, Farah Khan sat for a candid conversation with Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim at their home, and talked about celebs' opulent demands while working on their film sets. Farah revealed that nowadays, celebs usually stop working if their vanity vans don't reach the sets. Then, she spoke about the increasing demands of stars. Further, she mentioned that earlier heroines were comfortable changing clothes, even behind trees. Moreover, she explained how, for privacy reasons, she herself had held towels or bedsheets on the outdoor shoots. But nowadays, Farah shared that there is a high demand for the celeb's requirements, and shared:

“Until the vans don’t come, they don’t act. Nowadays, each actor has about four vans for themselves. One person. One is for their gym, one is for their staff, one is for them, one is… then the food truck comes, that’s separate. Earlier, heroines would change behind trees, we would hold towels for them. I have done it for them. When you go for (outdoor) shoots you’d do it, even in Switzerland they would change behind the bus, use bedsheets to cover. Now the actors don’t budge unless their vans come.”

Earlier, Farah had graced Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa's podcast on their YouTube channel. During one of the segments of the conversation, the director reacted to the never-ending debate about nepotism that prevails in the film industry. However, talking about it, Farah slammed the concept of nepotism. The filmmaker revealed that she had already launched a complete outsider, Deepika Padukone 16 years back in her film, Om Shanti Om. Mentioning how she was never a part of nepotism and did something contrary to that, Farah said:

“Tabhi maine nepotism ki baat ki thi, aaj 16 saal ho gaye Om Shanti Om ko. Nepotism ki baat chidhi thi.”
