New Delhi: One of the most awaited films of this year—Happy New Year is all set to rock and roll on October 24. The film which has an ensemble cast, is rumoured to be a three hour, four minute film, as per media reports.

However, the lead actor of the film, Shah Rukh Khan has rubbished all such rumours. According to a DNA report, SRK mentioned that although HNY is a long film, but it doesn't stretch for three hours four minutes. He even revealed that HNY may be a bit longer than his last release 'Chennai Express', which was a blockbuster at the Box Office window.

The reason behind 'HNY running for more than three hours is perhaps because, filmmaker Farah Khan wanted to include each and every crew member's name in the credit list—taking an extra time of about six minutes towards the end of the film.

Farah has done the same in all her previous films— 'Main Hun Naa' and 'Om Shanti Om'.
