Not approached Sonakshi, Parineeti for 'Happy New Year': Farah Khan
Farah Khan's re-union with Shahrukh Khan has put the long impending project "Happy New Year" on track but the choreographer-turned-director insists that they have not yet decided on the leading lady
The 47-year-old choreographer-filmmaker said she had planned "Happy New Year" (HNY) even before her directorial debut "Main Hoon Na" and was preparing to HNY immediately after "Om Shanti Om". "We are not in talks with Sonakshi and Parineeti.
We have not approached any one of them yet. I do meet Sonakshi regularly, she is beautiful and lovely. But we have not yet taken a call. "Shahrukh has just come back from London so we need to sit and work out figure out as to who is right for that role. It is a big role and then there is only one heroine in the film," Farah told PTI in an interview.
Cracks began to appear between the friendship of Farah and Shahrukh, when the latter refused to feature in "Tees Maar Khan", which was directed by Farah's husband Shirish Kunder. Shirish was allegedly beaten up by SRK at a private party hosted by actor Sanjay Dutt in January for taking a dig at "Ra.One".
Post patch up, Farah and Shahrukh decided to start work on HNY. So far, Shahrukh Khan has been confirmed for the male lead and the other actors including John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan are expected to play pivotal roles in the film.
