Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says Farah Khan`s directorial venture `Happy New Year` should be categorised as an "ensemble" movie.

If the team of Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone and Farah are coming together for `Happy New Year` for the second time after 2007 superhit reincarnation saga `Om Shanti Om`, the cast boasts a long list of well known actors - Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff, Vivaan Shah and Sonu Sood.

"The film is very new. It`s an ensemble film. It`s not just a Shah Rukh starrer," said the actor.

"It has Deepika, Abhishek, Boman, Jackie Shroff, Vivaan Shah and Sonu Sood. I think I am doing an ensemble film for the first time. The beauty and newness of `Happy New Year` is that it is not a hero or heroine oriented film," added the 47-year-old.

The film will release in October next year.
