After the slap incident, Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan sat down to sort off their differences. That talk seems to have done wonders to the pair’s friendship, as Shah Rukh Khan will be working in Farah Khan’s next movie ‘Happy New Year’.
“Yes, Shah Rukh and Farah have hugged and made up. They are indeed coming together for 'Happy New Year'. The decision was taken very recently and there would be an official announcement soon,” said a source to a daily.
“The director as well as the actor is extremely excited about the film as it also brings them back again after delivering two blockbusters - 'Main Hoon Naa' and 'Om Shanti Om',” the source added.
This news comes as a surprise to many, including people close to the pair, as though the pair had hugged and made up both has never mentioned anything about doing a movie together. Infact, Farah Khan had recently said that she was still working on the script of her next movie and it would take time for her to complete the script.
“The turnaround has taken place quicker than expected. Yes, they hugged and made up but no one would have imagined in their wildest dreams that there would be a professional liaison soon,” source said.
“Farah hadn't mentioned anything at all about 'Happy New Year' going on floors soon. In fact she had cut herself off from the outside world for full one year and was concentrating on getting the script in place. On the other hand Shah Rukh too got busy with his yet untitled film with Yash Chopra. Moreover, he is also committed to work with Rohit Shetty on Chennai Express,” source added.
When Shah Rukh Khan heard the script of the movie he immediately said yes.
“When the dust settled down on the Shirish episode, Shah Rukh and Farah had a heart to heart chat. All was forgotten and this is when 'Happy New Year' cropped up into the conversation again,” the source said.
“Without blinking an eyelid, Shah Rukh committed to Farah that he was doing the film with no questions asked. Farah too has the script ready and it is now time to close on logistics around other cast members and shooting schedule. The film is expected to kick-start once Shah Rukh is through with his film with Yashji,” the source concluded.
Neither Farhan Khan nor Shah Rukh Khan has confirmed the news yet.
