Mumbai, Aug 23: Choreographer-director Farah Khan hopes the success of “Chennai Express” helps her next directorial venture “Happy New Year”, which she is making with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.
SRK co-produced his “Chennai Express”, which had Deepika Padukone in the female lead, with UTV and the romantic comedy is reaping gold at the box office. Farah is interpreting the success of the film as a good news for her movie because Bollywood Badshah is producing her project as well.
“I am very happy at the success of ‘Chennai Express’. It has broken all records. Shah Rukh is the hero and producer of my film. Now he will come on the sets of my film filled with more energy and hopefully will shell out more money for my film. I am very happy,” Farah told reporters Thursday.
She was speaking on the sidelines of the curtain raiser of Lakme Fashion Week Winter-Festive 2013 .
Farah is repeating hit pair of SRK-Deepika in “Happy New Year”. She worked with them in “Om Shanti Om”, which also marked Deepika’s debut in Hindi filmdom.
Farah also informed “Happy New Year”, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, is set to go on floors next month.
“The schedule will start September 1st in Dubai,” said Farah.
