MUMBAI: After directing entertainers like “Main Hoon Na”, “Om Shanti Om” and “Happy New Year”, which were high on glamour and stars, choreographer-director Farah Khan is now planning to make a movie on “girl power”. She says it will be more “real” than her past films.

“I’m writing a script which is about two girls. It’s literally a ‘girl power’ movie, but it would be much more real than the movies I have made in the past. It will still be entertaining and fun. It will have humour, but it will have a message too,” Farah told indian news agency over phone from Mumbai.

The 50-year-old choreographer says her friend, superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s banner Red Chillies Entertainment will produce the film.

Farah is married to editor-filmmaker Shirish Kunder and the couple has triplets. Farah Khan says she wants to “re-invent” herself now.

“I think you have to reinvent yourself at all times. So right now, I want to make this movie and after this I may want to make a ‘Happy New Year 2’ or ‘Main Hoon Na 2’ or something in the zone of those movies.

I’m writing a script, and I’m working on a film which is a little more real than the movies I have made,” said the filmmaker, whose “Om Shanti Om” will be screened at the 37th Cairo International Film Festival this week.
