Farah Khan was all praise for Prithviraj’s performance in Aiyya

Farah Khan’s directorial venture Happy New Year has been in the news for a very long time now and speculations about the film’s casting are still on. While Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan are the only two actors who have signed on the dotted line, there were rumours that John Abraham might enter the fray. However, there was no confirmation from the director’s end.

But now, it seems the makers have made some progress. Word has it that Malayali superstar Prithviraj has been roped in by Farah to play the third lead in her film. “HNY is a film about three friends. So, SRK, Abhishek and Prithviraj will be playing the key characters. But the makers are yet to zero in on a heroine,” says our source. A while ago there were loud whispers about Priyanka being considered for the part but Farah and her team have denied it. The film tells the story of three friends who participate in a dance competition without realising the gravity of the consequences.

Sources close to Farah say that she was all praise for Prithviraj’s performance in Aiyya. “To be able to justify yourself in a frame with SRK and Abhishek, you need to have a certain screen presence and Prithviraj is capable of pulling it off. Moreover, even the YRF camp has been raving about his performance in Aurangzeb,” says our source. Now let’s hope he makes the most of the king-sized chance.
