Director Farah Khan squeezed out some time from her directorial ventures and three kids to act in the sweet romantic comedy Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi with Boman Irani. The movie which comes with the tagline “Love has no expiry date” has Boman and Farah as a fiery couple who wants to get married.
The first trailer of the film is out and shows Boman Irani as a simple Farhad, a middle-aged Parsi man, who can’t find a suitable bride for himself. His profession of a salesman at a lingerie shop further kills his chances of getting a wife. A butt of jokes among his relatives, he remains a soft-spoken gentleman. Then he meets his perfect match in Shirin, played by Farah Khan, an eccentric, firecracker Parsi woman.
A funny take on older men and women seeking romantic liaison, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, rides primarily on the shoulders of Boman Irani, Farah Khan and their crackling chemistry. The odd-looking couple makes a unique, romantic pair and that’s the USP of the film. Check out a scene in the trailer when the salesman Boman displays colourful bras to Farah in his shop, and also when Farah Khan drops the coffee tray seeing a half-naked Boman sitting on the sofa. There are many such instances in the trailer to give ROFL moments.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s sister Bela Sehgal Bhansali, the movie is a joint venture by Bhansali Productions and Eros International. Farah Khan even attended dialogue workshops for the film, and also met various Parsis to imbibe their traits and accent. The hit director also lost oodles of weight for the film.
You can see a slimmer Farah Khan romancing the adorable Boman Irani in the first trailer of Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. What’s your thought about the trailer?
