Mumbai, May 5 (IANS) Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan, who makes her acting debut with Bela Sehgal's "Shirin Farhad Ki Nikal Padi", says she won't take up any acting assignments now.

"(Producer) Sanjay Leela Bhansali was keen we watch the movie together and we laughed through it. He's ecstatic, but I'm more critical," Farah said in a statement.

"Still, I won't be embarrassed by it and won't have to skip town as I'd thought. But this will be the first and last movie I'll act in," she added.

Farah, who has choreographed several popular Bollywood numbers, turned director with "Main Hoon Na" in 2004. She latr directed "Om Shanti Om" and "Tees Maar Khan".

Revathy happy with Hindi, southern cinema amalgamation

Actress Revathy is delighted to see how various southern films are being remade in Hindi and vice-versa.

"It's one country. The issues and emotions are very much similar. The beauty about India is that it's so varied, the cultural differences, the language differences and the way people think. It is interesting for filmmakers to try and cater to that particular region in a different way," she told IANS.

"You have a pan-India audience, you have very regional audience and it's beautiful to see the way things are coming. It's like the world becoming smaller and boundaries are slowly getting wiped out," she added.
