Time for HNY team to disperse; Farah, Deepika get emotional

It was an emotional moment for "Happy New Year" directorFarah Khan and its lead actress Deepika Padukone - they broke into tears at an event here Wednesday.

"Happy New Year", which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah will be premiered here Thursday. And the team assembled here a day before the screening for a press conference, which is apparently their last event together.

"Just the thought made Farah emotional. She knows that once the film releases, the team members will go their different ways," said a source close to the film unit.

"Deepika and Boman started crying too, while Shah Rukh and Abhishek were trying to console them," added the source.

Abhishek had earlier said that they all worked like a family on the film and had a whale of a time.

Produced by Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainment Pvt Ltd, "Happy New Year" is a heist drama and the Bollywood Badshah has not left any stone unturned to make it the most spectacular and entertaining drama for viewers.

The film will apparently have the biggest release so far in the Middle East, US and Britian, the regions where Shah Rukh has a huge fan following.

Shah Rukh Khan, the second richest actor in the world after Jerry Seinfeld, will host "Got Talent World Stage Live," an extension of the Simon Cowell "Got Talent" TV franchise. The live event will be held on Dec. 6, at Mumbai's Andheri sports complex.

In statement, Shah Rukh Khan said "Performing arts is a pure act of passion and love. I am glad to associate with Got Talent World Stage as a host. I am sure that we will get to witness some extraordinary talent."

Simon Cowell added, "The Got Talent format has uncovered some incredible stars around the world, and this is a great celebration of Indian and international artists."

Khan will host the live event, which will showcase 10 Indian and international talents like popular illusionist Darcy Oake. The event will be broadcast on Colors.

Colors CEO Raj Nayak said "We have been associated with the Got Talent franchise for over six years now, which has not only witnessed the successful India's Got Talent series but also a corporate extension in the form of CEO's Got Talent. We are looking forward to the on-ground extension of the property especially because it gives us the opportunity to raise the entertainment quotient through the exhibition of exceptional local and international talent."

Shah Rukh Khan: Any film I star in will become bigger

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has had a tryst with off-beat films with 'Maya Memsaab', 'Swades', 'Chak De! India', but does not understand the concept of this genre as he feels his presence can turn any unconventional film into a mainstream money-spinner.

The 48-year-old actor, best known for his romantic hero act in films, said he did take a few risks with his movies but since he is such a big star, his experimental films also find audience.

"What is an off-beat film? You put me in an off-beat film and it will become on-beat. Like 'Chak De! India' was an off-beat film and it did really well money wise. It is the biggest success of my career," Shah Rukh told PTI.

"I think any film that I am part of will become bigger than it was meant to be as I am big movie star. Even if it is an off-beat movie, people will watch it and so it will become on-beat. I did 'Maya Memsaab', 'Oh Darling Yeh Hai India', 'Darr', 'Baazigar', 'Swades', 'Chak De! India' and others so I do off-beat films whenever I feel like doing it," he said.

However, Shah Rukh said that he is cautious about starring in off-beat films and will never take up such projects just to comply with what others want him to do.

"I will never do anything that others want me to do. I have enough money, I am a rich star, I am famous and have enough awards. I will do films that make me happy like I did 'Ra.One' because my children likes superheroes. My father played hockey so I wanted to do 'Chak De'. It is important to feel excited about doing what you want to," he said.

Shah Rukh said that his forthcoming releases YRF's 'Fan' and Rahul Dholakia's 'Raees' fall in the category of off-beat cinema and he is happy to be a part of them.

The star, who has been in the industry for over two decades, said even at this stage of his career he does not worry about his work as he knows he is evolving as an actor with each passing day.

"I have no worries at all. I am good at the craft, I am at a good level. I know my choices and do my best. I have no worries as every day you evolve as an actor. Actors don't worry and if they do they are not actors they are stars. And I am an actor. My stardom overshadows my work," he said.

Diwali at the box office with his upcoming multi-starrer film 'Happy New Year'. The movie will see the reunion of SRK and choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan after the success of 'Main Hoon Naa' and 'Om Shanti Om'. The actor said during the making of the film, which also stars Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah, he learnt many important lessons especially the virtue of being patient. "I have never done an ensemble film where everyone has an equal part. When you are trying to entertain people you have to get bigger and better. 'Happy New Year' is a venture which we all have tried to take it to the biggest level possible to entertain people so that they are happy on Diwali. As an actor who has worked for 20 years and who could lose patience easily I think what this film has taught me is you got to be patient. Every good thing comes with patience. It doesn't come with speed, aggression. I think patience is another name for creativity," Shah Rukh said. 'Happy New Year', produced by SRK's banner Red Chillies Entertainment, will hit theatres on October 24. -
