As 9 days to go, awaits one of the the most awaited biggie of the year in Happy New Year. Happy New Year stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan in lead role and supported by Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah. Film is directed by Farah Khan.
Last time SRK and Deepika came together for a Diwali release in Chennai Express and it wrecked havoc at box office and created new records. Same scenario awaits again as SRK is coming after 1 year and his die-hard fans are eagerly waiting to see their super star in big screen.
As for Running Time of the film, it is around 3 hours long. Running time is little bit longer than usual, but in recent times we have seen few films which are that long or near about.
Happy New Year is getting Diwali solo release and will have uninterrupted run for 14 days. Film is now confirmed for release on 24th October, 2014 with few paid previews might be there on 23rd. Team management has taken decision to release the film on 24th as on Diwali in evening and night time people do puja at their home and that's affect in collections.
As for Screen Count, it is more or less taken that Happy New Year will be the biggest release of 2014 surpassing Kick or at least will be in that region. Film is certain to get 4000+ screens. But main issue is in Southern Part of India, where there are few important releases coming in Diwali which will eat into its screening. Question is HNY is certain to get over 4000 screens across India on 24th. Whether it can get release in 4500+ screens is set to be seen.
As just few days more left for release of the film we will bring box office prediction, advance booking, screen count and other details in coming days. Stay tuned.
Running Time: 3 hours 4 minutes.
Release date: 24th October.
