Foreign shores beckon most Bollywood celebs to usher in the New Year
The countdown to 2015 has begun and Bollywood stars have already flown out of the country to usher in the New Year with their loved ones. For some, it is a conscious decision while for others, it is work that will keep them away from home.

Shah Rukh Khan has chosen the desert Emirate to ring in the New Year. While his wife Gauri and daughter Suhana are already at their Dubai home and are planning a bash, SRK will join them soon. His son, Aryan, is expected to tag along. Hrithik Roshan's sons Hridhaan and Hrehaan joined him in Dubai last week. The actor, who was supposed to shoot for a commercial there, decided to extend his trip and has parents Rakesh and Pinky Roshan for company. Even Sridevi is in the city with her daughters Jhanvi and Khushi minus her hubby Boney Kapoor.
