The film 'Happy New Year' which is much talked about these days for mostly negative reasons is busy making business at the box-office even in its third week after release. On its third Friday at the box-office, this film collected over 1.5 crores, making the total amount to approximately 194.50 crores at the domestic box-office. This film directed by Farah Khan received a lot of flak from critics but seems to be an audience favourite.
Starring Shahrukh Khan, 'Happy New Year' proved to be a crowd puller. With elements of comedy and drama, this film seemed entertaining to the family audiences. The rest of the star cast included Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah. Distributed under the banner of Red Chillies entertainment, this film is expected to cross the 200 crore mark soon.
Recently at a media gathering Jaya Bachchan expressed her hatred towards the film which made big news in the entertainment world. It seems like her words offended Shahrukh Khan and had Big-B apologizing on her behalf. Whether positive or negative, the fact still remains that 'Happy New Year' has proven to be a box-office success.
