Indore was one of the cities on Farah Khan's itinerary of 15 Indian cities to promote her film Tees Maar Khan, which releases on December 24. However she cancelled her plans to visit the city with her actors Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif at the behest of her friend Anil Kapoor.
When Anil learned that the TMK actors were going to promote the film there, he called Farah and requested her to stay away from the city, as he'd planned to promote his film No Problem in the city that same day.
Kapoor's film releases this Friday, so he couldn't postpone his dates.
Farah, who is currently in Delhi with Akki and Kat, confirms, "Yes, we were to go to Indore too but Anil Kapoor, who is a close friend, requested me not to go there as he was going there the same day for the promotion of No Problem. So we cancelled our event."
She continues, "We were to have the TMK media event in a mall in a Nagpur but had to cancel it at the last moment because of security problems, and do it at the hotel itself, where the crowds could be managed."
Other cities that the trio will visit are Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Ludhiana, Kolkata, Dubai, London, New York, Toronto, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Delhi again.
Akshay uses his six-seater aircraft to fly from city to city. In cities where AK is not accompanying the TMK girls, they will fly one of the commercial airlines or chartered flights. The plan is to cover 15 cities in 14 days a new record.
Farah says, "Akshay has no fear of flying and neither do I have any phobias except of certain snakes... Hahaha... So we thought this was the best way we could cover so much in such a short time. I don't think we are chartering a plane abroad except maybe to New York and Toronto."
