It took really long for Farah Khan’s dream project, Happy New Year, to take shape into reality, and now the choreographer-director is leaving no stone unturned and searching high heaven to make her magnum opus be grand in every possible way. Reportedly, Farah has brought on board an Italian cinematographer Franz Pagot to shoot a few underwater sequences for the movie.

Franz Pagot who has to his name films like Talaash and Warning 3D, will for a 14-day period shoot various underwater scenes with lead actor, Shah Rukh Khan. And all this will be around Christmas.

Says a source, “Farah wants HNY to stand out in every viable manner, be it with huge ensemble of big-wigs of tinsel town as star cast; or cameos by Sajid Khan, Malaika Arora Khan and Prabhu Dheva; or by bringing the best from the world to work on the film.”

Slated to release around Diwali next year, the film stars Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah in pivotal roles.

Hopefully Diwali 2014 will be Happy New Year for the whole cast of the film!
