Actor Boman Irani says his upcoming film Happy New Year, directed by Farah Khan, has something ‘magical’ about it. While he doesn’t know if the film will touch people’s heart, he says the Shahrukh Khan starrer is going to be a box office blockbuster.
“The buzz around Happy New Year started the day shooting kicked off in Dubai. There is something magical about that film. I don’t know what exactly it is. May be the group of six actors and Farah Khan is magical and there is a great amount of interest” Boman told reporters at the 3rd annual Mumbai Mantra-Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab.
“We all know Happy New Year is going to be a blockbuster. But how much it is going to touch people’s heart, that we don’t know yet” he added.
Happy New Year stars Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah. The film went on floors in 2013 and is scheduled to release in theatres during Diwali (October 24 2014).
Farah Khan, who has directed blockbusters like Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om, is the most successful female director in the industry. Her last film, Tees Maar Khan, didn’t do well at the box office, but with Happy New Year, she reunites with an actor who has been instrumental in giving her two hugely successful films.
