`Happy New Year` goes on floors in December

Mumbai: Filmmaker Farah Khan is yet to lock an actress for her next directorial ‘Happy New Year’, but says she will begin the shooting by December.

"One schedule of `Happy New Year` will start in December and then in January, we will start again. (But) I don`t know who the girl is as off now," Farah told reporters.

"There are four heroes (in the film). Shah Rukh Khan and Boman (Irani) are finalised and we are looking for the other two heroes (now)," she added.

Farah is reportedly keen to cast John Abraham as one of the heroes, but said: "Yes, we have such plans but we have not approached anyone so far."

As far as the leading lady is concerned, Parineeti Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha are reportedly being considered. But Farah says nothing is locked yet.

"I meet Sonakshi regularly. She is very beautiful, but we have not taken a call yet. Shah Rukh has just comeback from London, so we really need to sit and work out and figure out who is right for the role.

"It`s a very big role and the film has only one girl. We have not met anyone as yet," she said.

For now, the choreographer-turned-filmmaker is awaiting the release of her acting debut ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’.
