DUBAI: Shooting is underway for Farah Khan’s next film ‘Happy New Year’, and looks like the team of dancers in the film which includes Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Vivaan Shah, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani are learning to not just dance, but to ice-skate as well.
The story goes that a team of dancers, led by Shah Rukh Khan’s character, has to win a dance competition. At the same time, the buzz is that the film might be disguised as a dance movie but is actually a heist thriller.
Shooting for ‘Happy New Year’ began in Dubai on 1 September and now photos suggest a lot of behind-the-scenes action.
Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan can be seen in gaudy clothing, not much different from what Akshay Kumar wore in ‘Tees Maar Khan’ – Farah Khan’s last film, which didn’t do well at the box-office.
Deepika Padukone, on the other hand, is content with being the diva, something that she did in her debut film – ‘Om Shanti Om’, also Farah Khan’s directorial.
Mixing in the sensibilities of both her previous films, fans are hopeful that this Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan reunion can provide a huge hit for everyone involved and full-on masala entertainment at the same time.
‘Happy New Year’ will mostly see a Diwali release in 2014.
