Farah Khan’s next directorial venture, ‘Happy New Year’, already has a very appealing star cast in Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and also John Abraham. Khan’s hunt is on for the female lead and BizAsia has learnt that��Priyanka Chopra is a strong contender for the role.
Along with Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Vidya Balan have also been shortlisted for the role which will��be��Shah Rukh Khan’s love interest. Balan has not yet been paired with Khan before so this would be a fresh jodi whereas Sharma is acting with him for the second time in Yash Raj Films’ next but it is thought that she has a small role in the film.
If Chopra lands the role, it will see the two together for the first time since the rumour mills linked them and caused Gauri Khan to put a stop to the two acting together. BizAsia will bring you more on this story as it happens.
