Bollywood newcomer Prithviraj has reportedly landed a role in Farah Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Happy New Year’ alongside Shah Rukh Khan.

The actor who made his debut in the Hindi film industry with ‘Aiyyaa’ earlier this year, will also be starring in ‘Aurangzeb’, which is slated for a release next year.

According to Times Of India, ‘Happy New Year’ is a story that revolves around a bunch of friends and how they end up participating in a dance competition, despite none of them knowing how to dance.

A source told the publication that the star will begin filming in April, “Yes, the news is true and Prithviraj has been roped in to play a supporting character in the film, alongside Shah Rukh and Abhishek.”

Abhishek Bachchan, who also stars in ‘Happy New Year’ is already good friends with Prithviraj after the two starred in the Tamil and Hindi versions of Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’.
