Farah Khan’s Happy New Year has begun and the first location shoot is in Dubai! The thriller boasts an all star cast with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the leads as well as Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, Jackie Shroff and will have music by the great Vishal-Shekhar.
Recently the full cast attended a press conference and what was so cool is that they all wore traditional Kandoura and Abaya!
At the conference SRK said, “Dubai is a beautiful city. It has a great scenic balance of ancient and modern architecture. It’s not just the shopping capital of the Middle East but is a perfect location for a film shoot. We have been shooting for our film since Sep 2nd Dubai is like home for me and I have loved every bit of experience of shooting for ‘Happy New Year’ here.”
Both Farah and SRK have taken to twitter to talk about the film!
