Choreographer-director Farah Khan hopes the success of Chennai Express helps her next film Happy New Year, which she is making with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.
Shah Rukh co-produced Chennai Express, which had Deepika Padukone in the female lead, with UTV and the romantic comedy is reaping gold at the box office having made the fastest Rs 200 cr at the box office. Farah is interpreting the success of the film as a good news for her movie because Shah Rukh 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," said Farah.
Farah is repeating the hit pair of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in Happy New Year. She worked with them in Om Shanti Om, which also marked Deepika's debut in Bollywood.
Farah also informed that the film, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, is set to go on floors next month.
"The schedule will start on September 1st in Dubai," said Farah.
