Makers of 'Happy New Year' ban use of mobile phones on sets
With surreptitious photographs shot on the sets getting leaked, team of Farah Khan's 'Happy New Year', starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, has beefed up security
Security on the sets of Farah Khan's upcoming film, 'Happy New Year', has been beefed up. It seems that a few pictures shot on the sets of the film were recently leaked and this prompted the makers to tighten security on the sets.

A source says that the film’s shoot at a Mumbai studio started off smoothly but when word spread that Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone were shooting together, the burgeoning crowd meant that extra security had to be summoned to control the situation.
The producers then went on to ban the use of mobile phones on the film’s sets in a bid to prevent the film’s look from getting leaked.
The source adds that a few extras had recently shot photographs of the two stars on the sets of the film and these images were then leaked. “Some background dancers had been called from outside and they clicked some pictures. This upset the producers as they don’t want to reveal the film’s look at this juncture. They have now banned the use of cell phones on the sets of the film. In fact, this ban was announced earlier on but the makers are stricter about it now,” says the source. Director Farah Khan remained unavailable for comment.
