New Delhi: One of the most sought-after choreographers of the Hindi film industry Farah Khan basically learned to dance on her own. She then opened a dance school and got the opportunity to work in Bollywood only after the celebrated choreographer Saroj Khan walked away from the film ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’. She then went on to choreograph in several other movies and the rest is history. Farah has choreographed over 100 songs in 80 Hindi films. She also won the National Film Award for Best Choreography.
The ace choreographer celebrates her 55th birthday today. And as she turns a year older, many Bollywood celebrities including Sonu Sood, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Malaika Arora and other celebrities took to their social media and poured in wishes for the ‘Main Hoon Na’ director.
Sonu Sood took to his Instagram and shared a post for Farah on her birthday. His caption read, “Happy birthday my friend, my sister, my family and my everything. Faraaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.. there can be never another YOU. LOVE YOU LOADS. @farahkhankunder”
Riteish Deshmukh also took to his Twitter and shared a lovely picture with the ‘Dil Bechara’ choreographer. He wrote while sharing, “It’s your birthday but I still get the kiss!!! Happy Birthday my darling Faruuuuuu -love you loads – good health, love & happiness forever @TheFarahKhan”.
