Earlier this week we had reported that the soon to release Farah Khan directed multi- starrer Happy New Year was all set to be a three hour entertainer. Now we hear that the film that was recently screened for officials of the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has been awarded a 'U' certificate.
Adding to SRK director Farah Khan said, "I always believed in making an entertaining film to be enjoyed by not just one section or age-group but everyone. I always keep this in mind even when I'm writing or bringing my writing material to the celluloid. This Diwali, I as a director bring this Family Wholesome Entertainment and I hope that Happy New Year will make this a Happy Diwali for every family".
Happy New Year stars Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah. The film produced by Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd and directed by Farah Khan and is slated to release on October 24.
