Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan says she wrote the script of her upcoming Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Happy New Year’ keeping Dubai in mind.
“I wrote the script of ‘Happy New Year’ with Dubai in mind and the entire climax is shot around New Year’s Eve at Atlantis, The Palm,” Farah said, adding she will always cherish shooting the movie in Dubai.
‘Happy New Year’ also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah, Sonu Sood and Jackie Shroff. The film will premiere internationally at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai on October 22 and the entire cast will travel to Dubai to attend the event.
Produced by Red Chillies Entertainments, the film, which releases on October 23, was shot at Atlantis, The Palm in conjunction with Dubai Department of Tourism and Commence Marketing and Dubai Film and Television Commission for almost a month in September last year. “I would like to thank Atlantis, The Palm and DTCM for being such gracious hosts to us,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.
“Dubai is like home for me and I have loved every bit of my experience of shooting for ‘Happy New Year’ here,” he said.
In the lead up to the Diwali premiere, October has been declared as a Bollywood month at Atlantis, The Palm, with a number of activities planned to create excitement for guests around the resort.
The attractions include a designated fan zone, with memorabilia from the film, special dining menus at Atlantis’ restaurants and much more.
