Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif  and Abhishek Bachchan will start shooting for choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan’s next Happy New Year from mid-April, 2013.


Yes! You can go back and give it another read. After the much delayed and almost shelved off project of Farah Khan, Happy New Year is all set to go on floors in mid-April. Finally!

The movie has been in the tinsel town talkies for years and years, and there were series of names plummeting for the lead actress; some said Deepika Padukone would be the leading lady, some speculated Anushka Sharma, some even suggested Priyanka Chopra. But our firangi-gone-desi babe Katrina takes away the cake, as the riffing rumor is that Farah Khan has roped in Katrina Kaif, to star in the film.

One name that stood like a rock in the casting list was of Shah Rukh Khan, and it remains constant. In succession to Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Kat-SRK chemistry is worth looking forward to and all hope they recreate the sheer romantic apologue on the silver screen yet again in HNY. Alongwith SRK, Abhishek Bachchan will be seen playing one of the leads. Farah has also enfettered Prithviraj Sukumaran for a pivotal role.

The flick is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Farah takes the director’s seat. Music would be by Vishal-Shekar. The film is a romantic comedy which revolves around a group of friends who are circumstantially forced into participating in a dance competition which will alter their relations.

So we can finally exclaim that 2013 is “Happy New Year” for Farah Khan and the cast, as the film would at last commence shooting from mid-April. Phew!




  1. OMG….Kat and SRK together again? Like QUEEN & KING of Indian Cinema bonded yet again. Thanks to Farah for casting KATRINA…..cannot wait to see the film….good luck to Farah & her team.
