Farah Khan to be honoured at the 37th Cairo International Film Festival


Farah Khan will be conferred with ‘Faten Hamama Excellence Award’ (for excellence in Indian cinema) at the on-going 37th Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF). As a special tribute, this year’s coveted 10-day film festival honors the works of late Egyptian icons Faten Hamama, Nourel-Sheriff and Omar Sharif – all of whom passed away in the past year.

It’s going to be a double whammy for Farah who’s eagerly looking forward to attend the film festival. Besides being felicitated at the CIFF, the organizers have also planned a big premiere of one of her most successful films – Om Shanti Om (OSO) to be attended by the who’s who of the Egyptian film industry. In addition to that, there will be performances of Farah’s songs to welcome her on stage.

The opening night of the festival had a huge screen playing the montage of OSO.
