Another news that's fast gaining momentum is that Farah [MAIN HOON NA] Khan's next film will star Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapur in the lead. And it's titled OM SHANTI OM.

A startled Farah, who has been shooting a series of ad films with SRK [she's currently shooting for one when this writer called to verify the news], maintained that she wouldn't decide upon the star cast till she completes her script.

“What's confirmed is that SRK will produce my next film as well. And of course, he'll enact the pivotal role,” she informs me.

What about Shahid? Hasn't he been approached for the second lead? “That's not true at all. Like I said earlier, I won't start the project till I am through with the script,” she maintains, “And the movie is not titled OM SHANTI OM. Please clarify this as well.”

Just to refresh your memory, Farah had narrated the story of this new film to SRK almost a year ago, when he was recuperating after his back operation. “We kept discussing the story at regular intervals, to see whether it still excited us. And it continues to excite us even now. That's when I thought of going ahead with it,” Farah had revealed then.

Besides, Farah's new film will also be an out-and-out commercial film. “But it'll be different from MAIN HOON NA, that's for sure,” she adds. Indiafm
