THAT she is filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sister has made her journey into showbiz trouble free, admits editor-turneddirector Bela Sehgal whose first
venture Shirin Farhad Ki TohNikal Padi is ready for release.
Clarifying that she is not copying her brother's style of filmmaking to be successful, Bela told IANS: “I always wanted to be a director.
Luckily for me, Sanjay started directing. And yes, of course, being Sanjay's sister helpedme a lot.”
Co-produced by Bhansali and Sunil A. Lulla, Shirin Farhad …, which marks choreographer-director Farah Khan's debut as an actor, is slated for an August 24 release.
Farah has teamed up with Boman Irani in it. Elaborating on the perks that come with being Bhansali's sister, she said that compared to those who struggled,
a lot of things came herway easily.
“Without him, I don't think a lot of things would have been so easy for me.We are like cats and dogs, but we both love each other. We both love each other to death.”
Her brother is known for making larger than life films, but Bela didn't want to go that way.
“There is a reason behind that. I said if I would do everything similar to Sanjay, people will not even look at me.Why not do something different where people would say, ok, Sanjay's sister's film is different. I am that kind of a person. I enjoy life,” she said.
