Mumbai: After choreography and filmmaking Farah Khan is now dabbling in a bit of acting. that's right, the woman behind successful films like Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om - stepped both in front and behind the camera for a social awareness ad campaign.

On Thursday afternoon Farah participated in a shoot to raise awareness on the need for pneumonia vaccines for toddlers. The young mother not only directed the ad campaign but also acted in it.

"When I direct I look sloppy, I like to wear chappals (flip-flops), and the loosest possible old clothes, I'm very comfy. But for this ad, because we were doing a photo shoot I had to be on TV, so I had to look lady-like, with makeup and hair done. And I had to wear decent clothes and that was very uncomfortable for me," said the mother of three.

Farah is also busy with a chat show called Tere Mere Beech Mein which she is hosting, and one of the guests she is looking forward to having on the show is Salman Khan.

"We're getting Salman and his mom on the show and it's to do with mama's boys. For me he is the poster for mama's boy. He's 40 still living with mummy and that side of a celebrity is not really seen before," said Farah.
