Farah Khan directs Kolkata Knight Riders ad for Shah Rukh KhanFarah Khan completed a song picturised on Salman Khan and Preity Zinta for Main Aur Mrs Khanna while the next day she directed a 30-second promotional video on the Kolkata Knight Riders.
The video was picturised on Shah Rukh Khan, Sourav Ganguly, Murali Kartik and Ajit Agarkar at the BPCL Sports Club in Chembur on Friday.
Says a source, "Last year, Shah Rukh had a music video (directed by Ganesh Hegde) where he had roped in Bappi Lahiri to compose the songs. SRK had himself featured in it.
Shah Rukh had rendered a song while Usha Uthup had sung another with the theme being Korbo, Lorbo, Jeetbo Re. But this year, SRK has decided to do away with the music video promos of KKR completely as of now."
Farah directed the latest 30-second talkie video on the three cricketers of Kolkata Knight Riders, Ganguly, Murali and Agarkar and Shah Rukh last Saturday at Chembur.
SRK wore KKR's No 12 jersey while Sourav sported No 1. Ganguly came to Mumbai at 9 am on Saturday and for the hush-hush shoot. The video was shot in a day."
Farah says, "I directed the video on Shah Rukh, Sourav, Murali and Ajit. It was fun shooting with all of them.
Sourav, Shah Rukh and we discussed our children including tips on how to bring them up. I know Sourav from before as I had directed him in an ad earlier. "
