When the cast of ‘Happy New Year’ appeared on the set of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ in 2014, Shah Rukh Khan revealed that Farah had complained to him about Abhishek Bachchan and Vivaan Shah bothering her.
Narrating the incident to Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan had said, “Ek baar isne (Farah) mujhe bahut complain kiya. Isne kaha ki Abhishek aur Vivaan jo hai dono k dono bahut pareshan kar rahe hain, distracted rehte hain, baat cheet kar rahe hain, tang kar rahe hain. ‘Baar baar meri photo leke Twitter pe daal rahe hain’. Bahut tang karte hain Abhishek aur Vivaan isko, toh tum jaake unse baat karo. (Once Farah complained to me that Abhishek and Vivaan are troubling her, they are distracted, keep chatting, take her pictures and upload them on Twitter. They irritate me a lot so you go and talk to them).”
“Maine kaha nahi Farah bacche hai yaar aese thodei na hota hai yaar, hojayega (It’s ok they are children). ‘No, today I’m very angry. You go and talk’. Toh Sir, main bada aese kamar kas k pahuch gaya…main bolne ko shuru hua phir mujhe dimaag m aya ki Abhishek Bachchan k jo daddy hai woh Mr Amitabh Bachchan hai. Phir aya ki Vivaan k jo daddy hai woh Mr Naseeruddin Shah hai. Phir mere dimaag m aya ki agar inke baap inko nahi sikha sake toh main kya sikhaunga? (So went to scold them and recalled that Abhishek Bachchan’s father is Amitabh Bachchan and Vivaan Shah’s father is Naseeruddin Shah. Then I realised if their fathers couldn’t teach them, how will I be able to?).”
