Farah Khan celebrates her 10th anniversary on reality shows

Farah Khan, last seen on the judging panel of Zee TV‘s DID L’il Masters, will now be seen judging Sony TV’s Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega with Anu Malik starting on Monday, August 16th. “This is actually my tenth TV show,” she says. “I have done seasons of Indian Idol, Dance India Dance, Entertainment ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega and Tere Mere Beech Mein. And I am enjoying this!”

Farah Khan, mother of three kids, shared her thoughts on managing her home and career together. “Sometimes when my kids fall ill, I [wonder] ‘why am I doing all this things if my kids are not well?’ At that moment, I think that I should leave everything.” So why does Farah take up reality shows if she feels it is difficult to manage? “Well, I take all those realities which are shot near my house –  even ‘Entertainment Ke…’ is being shot at Yash Raj, which is quite near to my house,” explains Farah.

Farah Khan is seen judging many reality shows on TV these days. “Actually season three of ‘Entertainment…’ is my 10th year to judge a reality show. If you count the shows and their seasons since ‘Indian Idol,’ ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Dancing Star,’ ‘Nach Baliye 4,’ and so on, and now with this season 2 of ‘Entertainment…,’ it is my 10th year to be on the judges panel. But after this season of ‘Entertainment…’ I am going to take a break, otherwise not only I but the audience also will feel bored to see the same face again and again,” says an overwhelmed Farah.

However, she admits that TV didn’t come naturally to her. “I learnt if from Sajid.” Farah’s brother Sajid judged for the first time with India’s Got Talent Season 2. “I went to his shows and picked it up from him. He taught me how to behave and be more interesting on TV. Now I can say I am pretty good,” she adds.

When asked how she feels about her brother judging another show, she said, “When it comes to judging, I am senior to Sajid. Though I think that Sajid can give better tips to the contestants, I can judge a person in a more proper manner.”

Do the kids recognize mommy on screen? “No, as they are two and half years old, for them there are two mommies. One is without make up, which they see at home and one is on-screen mamma with make up. But yes, they can make out Sajid when they see him on hoardings. They say that this is Sajid Mama (Uncle)”.

Best of luck to Farah, her family, and her career!

          True dat! 😆

  • GabbarSingh

    AnnieJ, you have to remember that MODs don’t have the right to compete with lesser mortals like us, hehehehehe.

    Anyway, congratulations girl, you did it, finally. I was just watching the SRGMP website (the link that Admin of DID sent us in an email) and it was simply unbelievable.

    This show is so much superior than Indian Idol. Me and DIDrocks have discussed this before. This is going to be an exciting season on Zee, no questions about that.

    Hey AnnieJ, you take care and be safe. God bless ya!!!

    • Love

      I used to watch SaReGaMaPa in late 1990s when Sonu Nigam was host and they used to select the contestants from their prerecorded audio cassettes. After 2001, Now I am watching again. I really liked the Mumbai Audition.
      I loved Nazim Ali (also the song he selected) and Mugdha (What a soothing voice this soul has) 😀

      On my Mom’s insist, I just saw Indian Idol final episode yesterday, It was OK…I am like really..these r the 3 finalists??? (may be i did not watch from the beginning) I liked SreeRam far far better than other 2. The 3 judges are not able to do enough Justice in commenting (Anu Malik, Sunidhi Chauhan and I dont know the third gentleman)
      I completely agree that SaReGaMaPa is far far superior 😀

      • Anushree

        the third one is Salim Merchant. he is the best out of all 3.

    • AnnieJ

      MOD IS GOD!!! >:]]

      Lol. Lesser mortals… cute! I’m too lazy to watch SaReGaMaPa. Or television in general….

  • karan99one

  • GabbarSingh

    My dear friends :

    I wanted to share this news from my side for sometime and all my attempts to get the email IDs were in vain.

    Hence, Yummy recommended that I post this in the DID site. So here we go.

    People, I am engaged and yes, engaged to my long time girlfriend. if I was telling all of you that Life was good earlier, Life is way more better now that we have achieved a major milestone in our lives.

    I sincerely hope all of you are doing very well. My best wishes to all of you and God bless!!

    Bye now.!!!!

    • rpatel91

      awww CONGRATSS Gabbaar!! thats great news! 😀 and congratulations to Kelly too!.. hope ur well :)

      • GabbarSingh

        Thanks Riya. Its like my one foot is firm on the ground and the other is hanging in thin air. LOL.

        You can email me. Yasmin (Yummy) and Love ji have my email IDs. (If you know theirs, that is LOL).

        Take it easy girl.

        • rpatel91

          lol well u deserve to feel that way 😛 nope, i don’t have their email addys but i guess DID will start soon.. well hopefully…

    • breathless

      Congrats man! I am happy for you. I don’t believe in the concept of marriage/engagement so i can’t really relate to your sentiments. But it is good to hear that your life is going as planned. Since your are committed now remember to love her more than last day everyday. Peace!

      • me.yummy

        I remember on my very first chat with Gabbar, he said,”I DON’T BELIEVE IN MARRIAGE”.And few weeks later he told me about his girlfriend(and now fiance).His exact words were,

        Breathless, thank you for reminding me of this and making me laugh.I know it was an accident, but thanks, anyway.

        I really wonder if we will read a similar kind of post written by you.

        • breathless

          How are you? I am glad my comments made someone laugh. I think that you and I were there when we had the discussion about “i don’t believe in marriage”.

          • me.yummy

            @Breathless: I don’t remember being a part of that discussion.Actually, I don’t think you and I have ever been in the chatroom at the same time,dear. ❓ ❓

            I am doing well,thanks. 😛 😛 I hope things are good at your end.

        • GabbarSingh

          Yummy, read my response to Breathless, you silly girl LOL

      • GabbarSingh


        Thanks for the wishes. I don’t intend to make this response a long one but I must tell you that even I don’t believe in the concept either, even today. I seriously don’t. But I do believe in her and thats all that matters. Both of us have been having this talk about commitment etc etc off and on and I can say with conviction that even if I hadn’t gone on my knees asking her, she would have stayed with me forever and vice versa.

        Now why I took this huge step, probably thats a discussion for another time and through another medium but there is absolutely no way that we both are even thinking of marriage, right now LOL.

        Both of us are incredibly lucky that we have found each other. I think one of the major factors of a successful relationship is that either of us don’t have to pretend when we are around with each other, ya know what I mean.

        She just makes me feel so complete, as an individual, what else can I say :).

        Thanks a lot :). You take it easy!!!

        • me.yummy

          @Gabbar:I am really confused.. :roll: I feel as if I am intellectually bankrupt. 😐

          Since you guys are not thinking of marriage,I wish you have a…nice..courtship and hope the two of you celebrate the silver jubilee of your courtship!! jk please don’t say, “IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT LONG EITHER, YASMIN”!!!(please don’t respond to this)

          😆 Makes me feel complete?Kitna filmi. Jerry McGuire, isn’t it? 😆

          😆 Did you really go down o your knees? He he..

          • GabbarSingh

            Of course I went down on my knees, nahin to kya. Aise hi haan bolegi kya woh? LOL.

            Well the word ‘complete’ comes out of the feeling that I am experiencing and not by anything else. I am just happy that I don’t have to be what I am not, i just behave as normally and naturally as I usually am. Life is good LOL.

        • rpatel91


          • me.yummy


  • GabbarSingh

    and yes, Beauty, I hope you are doing well in india. My warmest regards and lots of love to you too.

  • rpatel91

    i hope everyone else is well too! 😀

  • me.yummy

    @Gabbar:Congrats!!May you get hitched very soon.And look, people still visit the site.

    @Riya: How are you,Dear? I am doing well.

    Hoping to hear from my other cronies also!!

    • GabbarSingh

      You were right Yummy, as always :). Naah, I don’t think I am going to get ‘formally’ hitched anytime soon. You take care of yourself.

    • rpatel91

      LOOL we doo! 😛

      im good thanks yasmin :) good to know ur doing well too! hope ur dentistry stuff is going well as well 😀

    • AnnieJ

      Have they announced dates? Like show or audition dates? I can’t seem to find anything, otherwise I’d make a new post XP

      • breathless

        I just watched few minutes of saregamapa today and i heard Manish mention DID upcoming season. He said that they will announce the audition dates soon.
        Anyways, how are you?

        Sister, let me know when you would be online on yahoo, so that we can chat.

        Thanks again, Sister. You take care and God bless!

    ‘Dance India Dance’ returns – this time with couples- News on sify!!

    Zee TV’s ‘Dance India Dance’ is back – but this time with a twist. The fourth season of the popular reality show will be called ‘Dance India Dance Doubles’, where pairs will be competing with each other on the dance floor.

    The upcoming season will be a search for an exceptional ‘dancing jodi’, who will be judged on the basis of their choreography, timing, co-ordination and appeal.

    Auditions will be held in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Baroda, Indore, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Guwahati, Lucknow and Bangalore, starting end of October, and will continue all through November.

    International auditions will also take place in Dubai, US and Britain.

    However, there is still speculation whether the popular trio of judges and mentors – Terence Lewis, Remo D’souza and Geeta Kapoor will be back with the season.

    Here is the link for you!!!

    let the good times return!!!

  • daris
