Prithviraj to act with Shah Rukh in Farah’s next film?

Farah Khan's next will apparently have him sharing screen space with SRK and Abhishek Bachchan

It seems Prithviraj could not have asked for a better start to his Bollywood career. A dream debut with an Anurag Kashyap film with Rani Mukerji in Aiyyaa, followed by another big film — Aurangzeb; and now, his biggest project yet in B-Town is here, with the actor reported to have a landed a role in Farah Khan's Happy New Year, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan.

It is learnt that the story revolves around a bunch of friends and how they end up participating in a dance competition, despite none of them knowing how to dance!

While Prithviraj could not be reached, a source close to the actor confirms his casting for the film which will begin filming by April next year. "Yes, the news is true and Prithviraj has been roped in to play a supporting character in the film, alongside Shah Rukh and Abhishek," says our source.

Incidentally, Prithviraj and Abhishek are good friends ever since the two of them acted in the Tamil and Hindi versions respectively of Mani Ratnam's Raavan.

Our source tells us that Prithviraj is currently enjoying a vacation in France with his wife Supriya.

"It's been a busy year for him career-wise, and his hard work is finally paying off. He's been travelling up and down the country with back-to-back Hindi and Malayalam films and has been dying for this break to spend time with his family," says our source, adding that the couple would be spending the New Year in France.

Prithviraj is set to return to India by January 15, after attending the launch of his mother Mallika Sukumaran's restaurant in Doha.
