There is a lot of curiosity around Farah Khan’s Happy New Year and the role of the actors in the film. While it is known that Shah Rukh Khan, Boman Irani, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah play Team India who participate in a dance competition, we have learnt that Jackie Shroff plays an affluent owner of a top hotel in Dubai. The actor will be seen as a towering personality in tuxedos, jelled hair and specs who is always surrounded by three-four bodyguards. It is also confirmed that Abhishek Bachchan has a double role in the film. Interestingly one character plays Shroff’s son! In this role, he will sport a moustache while the other character will be seen as a Muslim guy. For this, he will be dressed in a kurta pyjama and will have a beard. “Their looks are a complete contrast to each other,” revealed a source. Meanwhile, Sarah Jane Dias will play the publicist for Shroff’s hotel. However, when contacted Shroff messaged back, “You seem to know more than me, but I can’t speak now. Protocol does not allow me to speak.”
