And King Khan understands grandeur. The trailer of Happy New Year conveys that and more. The glittering ensemble cast of the film put up a stellar show obviously and though the trailer was all a King Khan show, the actor insists it wasn’t about one actor.
Conveying the gist of the film, the superstar sums up the theme saying, “This film is not about one actor. This film is about goodness, hope and belief. It is dedicated to people who think, they are losers. Life gives you another chance to fix it all. If you try and lose, you cannot be a loser. Everytime you achieve something, keep doing something new. Prosperity and posterity shouldn’t stop you from achieving newer things. The Indiawale Taale Todengey too has a similar connotation.The connotation is like freedom. Six losers break every shackles of their life.”
Farah Khan is helming a film after a good respite and it is important for her to fare well this time to keep her career going the right way. Ask her what was her biggest challenge and Farah replies with, “It was important to create an original heist film. Though it is based out of a formula but to write something that hasn’t been seen before was difficult. The writing took almost a year.”
The film has success written all over it in bold words but it will sell in the name of King Khan and for being a Quintessential Bollywood potboiler. On being asked about the scope of this film abroad, producer Shah Rukh Khan replied with, “Billions will be difficult. Avatar is the only one. But Happy New Year makes something novel as it blends in dance and heist, bringing together diametrically opposite genres. This film can compete with anything international in terms of quality. The scale, idea, thought and belief is all mega size that will make Indians abroad proud of Bollywood.”
