Farah fights the fat!


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Aug. 17 -- Seems almost every Amar, Akbar and Anthony in Bollywood is being plagued by weight issues. The latest to fall prey to the weighing scale, my faithful jasoos tells me, is director-turned-actor, Farah Khan.

The straight-shooting lady is usually the one calling the shots, but as she'll be making her on-screen debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's production, Shirin Farhad, it's time for her to follow orders. The film's director, Bela Sehgal, has asked the... ahem... voluptuous Farah to lose atleast 10 kilos before they begin shooting.

And Farah, who isn't known to be too conscious about her looks, has apparently hit the gym with a vengeance, now that the deadline is looming large. Don't worry Farah, I'll send over my Michelin-starred bawaarchi to cook some special diet dishes for you.
