Farah Khan was pursuing a course in sociology at a Mumbai college when Michael Jackson's Thriller was telecast. She was so inspired after watching MJ that she started learning how to dance all by herself. Farah Khan got her first break as a choreographer in 1992 with Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, starring Aamir Khan, Ayesha Jhulka, Deepak Tijori and Pooja Bedi, after renowned choreographer Saroj Khan walked out of the film.

In 2004, Farah Khan was nominated for a Tony Award as Best Choreographer for her work in films Monsoon Wedding, Bombay Dreams and Vanity Fair. She has received the Filmfare Best Choreography Award six times.

Farah Khan made her debut as a director with Main Hoon Na (2004), starring Shah Rukh Khan and Sushmita Sen. She later helmed films like Om Shanti Om and Tees Maar Khan. Farah Khan last directed the 2014 movie Happy New Year which failed to impress the audience and film critics.

Farah Khan was one of the judges in television reality shows Indian Idol (first two seasons), Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star, Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, Dance India Dance Li'l Masters and Just Dance. She also hosted Bigg Boss Halla Bol,a spin-off of season 8.
