Dancer became a householder

Dance was learned by watching TV at neighbors’ home

Farah had a passion for learning dance but did not have the money to fulfill these hobbies. Due to poverty, there was neither TV in the house nor other facilities like VCR and phone.

Farah always considered Michael Jackson as her idol from whom she had learned to dance. Farah mastered dance despite poverty and reduced facilities.
Due to Saroj Khan, there was a break in films
While working as a background dancer in films, Farah started teaching stars new dance steps. Farah Jo won, while Sikander was an assistant to dance choreographer Saroj Khan in the film. Suddenly Saroj’s backing out gave Farah the opportunity to choreograph the first intoxicating song. After the film’s release, the song received a lot of love from the audience and a few more songs for Farah. Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan became friends while choreographing the song in the film Kabhi Ya Kabh Naa where Farah talked about working with the actor when he got the chance.
