As part of its promotional spree, the "Happy New Year" team – Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Farah Khan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah – was on the sets of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's "Kaun Banega Crorepati 8".
Going by the social media reactions of the stars involved, looks like it was a night of celebration and happiness. Here are the Twitter posts:
"Back from 2 episodes of KBC .. the 2nd with HNY stars .. great fun .. and then a quiet dinner with the family .. to bring in 11th !" – Amitabh Bachchan.
"A good evening at KBC shoot. Brain teasers..jokes & dance. & of course Big B's Birthday. Thank u & Happy B' Day sir" – Shah Rukh Khan.
"Last night celebrations started early. The team of #HNY at the #KBC set. What a super time we had." – Boman Irani.
"#HNYOnKBC @SrBachchan n such a good time was had by all!! Rotating hot seat for the 1st time!!" – Farah Khan.
According to reports, Shah Rukh was a constant at the hotseat, while the rest took turns with the senior actor.
"SRK was a constant on the 'hot seat', while Deepika, Farah and Abhishek played in rotation along with him. Alas, before Boman, Vivaan and Sonu could reach the 'hot seat', the time was up," a source from the set told IANS.
Set to release on 24 October, "HNY" follows the story of 6 oddballs – Charlie (Shah Rukh), Mohini (Deepika), Nandu Bhide (Abhishek), Tammy (Boman), Jag (Sonu), and Rohan (Vivaan) – who set out to steal a handful of diamonds. Shot mostly at The Atlantis in Dubai, the film looks very grand and picturesque in its trailers and videos.
