After Mark Wahlberg, Malaika Arora Khan, Prithviraj and Sajid Khan – phew, that is a long list – Farah Khan’s film Happy New Year seems to have another guest appearance. This time, none other than the Michael Jackson of India, Prabhu Deva. And it’s not just any appearance!
According to Shahrukh Khan, who plays the lead character in the movie along with Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachcha, Prabhu Deva just might have shaken his leg on the dance floor for a special number in the film.
While there has been no official news regarding Prabhu Deva’s little dance number, SRK let the cat out of the bag on his micro-blogging site on Wednesday. “Too much fun to see Prabhu Deva sir move on the dance floor. Thank you for lighting up happy new year.. love and respect sir,” he wrote on Twitter.
Considering celebs thinking nothing of breaking big news on Twitter, one can never know if Prabhu Deva was there for a special song or as guest on the shooting floor. Farah had earlier tweeted about the film’s shooting taking off – “N the countdown begins! Exactly one month before shoot starts for HaPpy New YeAr ! The most hectic, exhilirating, stressfully happy time!” So here’s to hoping that SRK and Chennai’s favourite dancer get to jive on the dance floor together on screen.
The film, touted to be a romantic comedy, is set for release in October 2014.
