Farah Khan’s latest multi-starrer ‘Happy New Year’ which made a smashing hit at the box office has added yet another success feather to its hat. Buzz is that, Happy New Year has the great opportunity to be in the prestigious Oscar Library. This news was shared by the filmmaker herself via Twitter. Thanking her writers, Farah had tweeted, “1 more reason 2 celebrate!! #HNY script goes to the Oscar library!! Bigg kiss to my co writers @mayurpuri n Althea k”.

Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah, ‘Happy New Year’ is written by Mayur Puri and Althea Kaushal. Although the film received mixed reviews, it has become the highest grossing movie ever in Bollywood.

As per reports, the script of HNY finds itself a place in the Core Collection of Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It will be used for research purposes by film students, filmmakers, writers, actors and others from the field of cinema.

Incidentally, Shah Rukh Khan’s earlier films namely ‘Devdas’ and ‘Chak De’ too have entered the Oscar Library.

RA.One setting the tone

Touted to be one of India’s the most expensive film ever made, Ra.One has already created enough buzz across B-town. News coming in confirm that the satellite rights of this highly anticipated film was sold for Rs 40 crores to star India.

SRK starrer Ra.One boosts of visual effects that were never seen on Indian screen. Being a superhero film, Shahrukh is leaving no stones turn around to make it as stylish and as grandeur as he can. This dimension of King Khan has certainly prompted the team of Star India network to purchase the deal surpassing 3 idiots record of 36 crores mark by Sony TV.

Anubhav Sinha of Dus fame is directing this flick. Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Ramphal are playing other lead roles. If sources are to be believed the film’s budget crossed more than the estimated 100 crores mark.

So at present SRK is one step a head of Aamir Khan. Wonder whether the film will cross 3 idiots figure of collecting more than 360 crores.
