Casting underway for Farah Khan film

Asin Thottunkal unable to star in Farah Khan's commercial flick, Happy New Year.

Choreographer-turned- director, Farah Khan who has directed box office blockbusters like Mein Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om is currently busy scripting for her next film project.

Titled Happy New Year, the movie will star Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.

Farah was keen to cast Asin opposite Khan but due to other film commitments she was unable to accept the role. Now Farah may consider the likes of Kareena, Priyanka Chopra or even Deepika Padukone to play the female lead in her movie.

Happy New Year will be an all out entertainer typically Farah Khan style. The movie was supposed to have been made two years ago but Farah gave priority to her Om Shanti Om.

She has now decided to revive this project. Husband Shirish Kunder is currently making changes to the script giving it a fresh look which will be ready sometime next year.

Happy New Year will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan and is expected to star new Bollywood faces as well as established stars.
