MUMBAI: By now, all and sundry are aware that Farah Khan is busy filming her ambitious directorial venture ‘Happy New Year’ in the faraway, sunny locales of Dubai. What most people don’t know, though, is just how well the ‘Happy New Year’ team is bonding.
Reportedly, Farah Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani are having a whale of a time in Dubai. So attached are they to one another, that the entire unit has become like one big happy family!
Among all the hectic shooting schedules, the team have even found a new way to connect with one another, and inform the world of their tight-knit friendship. Twitter!
Farah Khan is the ringleader of this circus, and is constantly tweeting to Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani and Deepika Padukone, whether it is to get them ready for the shoot, or to express her gratitude for the day’s work having gone well.
The Twitter tales began a few days ago, with Farah initiating it by posting:
