Would like one of my sons to join army: Ahmed Khan

Mumbai, Feb 9 (IANS) Choreographer-turned-director Ahmed Khan, who has made films like “Lakeer – Forbidden Lines”, “Fool n Final”, and “Paathshaala”, says he wants one of his sons to join the Indian Army and serve the nation.

“If I get something to do for my country, I would like one of my sons to join the army or become a policeman and serve our nation. I always had a dream that one member of my family serves the country. I don’t know if they will like to join or not but it’s my wish,” he said.

“I am very patriotic… and in future, I will definitely do something without joining politics, whatever best I can do in my field.” he said.

Ahmed, who had worked as a child artiste in Shekhar Kapoor’s “Mr. India”, says India’s national anthem always inspires him.

“Whenever I hear our national anthem playing, I always get goose bumps. I stand with a lot of pride. I want to make a video like ‘Mile Sur Mera Tumhara’ or ‘Vande Mataram’ so that my children can feel proud of me. This will be a feeling like I fought a war and participated like a soldier,” Khan said.

Khan recently choreographed for Akshay Kumar in songs “Soch na sake” and “Dil cheez tujhe dedi” from “Airlift”.

Khan will also be directing a multi-starrer produced by Firoz Nadiadwala. He has also signed films like Sanjay Gupta’s “Kabil” starring Hrithik Roshan, and “Rabtaa” as a choreographer.
