Farah Khan’s Happy New Year which stars Shahrukh Khan has been doing the rounds in our gossip column for a long time and the latest news is that southern superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran who featured in Aiyyaa (2012) and the recent Aurangzeb has been roped in for the film.
Prithviraj is already looking forward to manage his dates for the film. “HNY will be my next film in Bollywood. Farah approached me for it and we have discussed the script a couple of times. I have to work out my dates for it. We will start shooting in September,” says Prithviraj.
Although the actor will not play the lead role, his character is expected to be something very different from his previous two films. “I don’t want to be bracketed in the industry. I will sign films that interest me rather than giving more importance to the length of my roles. The characters should make an impact and have significance to the story,” he said. “Also, it will be a great experience to work with a star of Shahrukh’s stature.”
