The hit "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge" father-son jodi of Shah Rukh Khan and Anupam Kher is back with "Happy New Year".

After a gap of seven years, Anupam and Shah Rukh will portray the role of father and son in the upcoming movie.

Anupam and Shah Rukh have worked together in several movies, but they are known for the classic romantic movie, "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge".

But unlike "DDLJ" he won't be seen in a full-fledged role. Apparently, Anupam is having a guest appearance in Farah Khan's directorial film, "Happy New Year".

Anupam called it as an 'emotional appearance' said that it's always fun to be working with Shah Rukh.

"It is always a joy to be working with Shah Rukh Khan. I am doing what I would call as an 'emotional appearance'. Happy New Year is one film which I am looking forward to," he told Bollywood Hungama.

Anupam finished the shooting of the film last year itself. Director Farah had tweeted on 25 November and said that "#HNY welcomes @AnupamPkher who joins our cast 2day..thank u Anupam.V love u."

After "DDLJ", Anupam played the role of Shah Rukh's father in "Chaahat" (1996 ) and "Heyy Babyy" (2007).

Meanwhile, Anupam will also be seen sharing screen space with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in her comeback film "Jazbaa". Sanjay Gupta, director of "Jazbaa", confirmed Anupam's role in the film.

"It's a role only Anupam can play. I had worked with him 19 years ago in the second film of my career Ram Shastra. After that there was no solid opportunity to direct him. So I am really looking forward to working with him again. Incidentally, we had launched Anupam's son Sikandar as a leading man in Woodstock Villa," Gupta told DNA.
