Prachi Kadam (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 28, 2012)
There has been considerable speculation about Farah Khan’s next Happy New Year. The film, which was supposed to kick start this year, has already seen several postponements. And now, as Mirror can reveal, it will not start before April next year.
This rescheduling has more to do with SRK’s look in the film than anything else, as Farah revealed to Mirror.
Flush from the high of a Disneyland vacation with her family, Farah says: “In Happy New Year, you will see a different SRK. He will have long, almost shoulder-length hair and a healthy beard,” she says. That 70s look? Farah does not divulge much, but adds: “Since he has a clean shaven look in Chennai Express, we have to wait until he wraps up his shoot and grows his hair for my film”
After getting him to take off his shirt and get his pack of six for Om Shanti Om, seems Farah is now ready with yet another challenge for SRK.
Curiously enough, though no leading lady has been finalised yet for the film, work on the soundtrack has commenced. “Guess we will announce the rest of the cast in the new year itself,” Farah smiles mischievously.
