Happy New Year Q&A: Shah Rukh’s 8-Pack Secrets
We know that the cast of Farah Khan’s upcoming magnum opus Happy New Year, which is on tour in United States, took the Twitter office by storm in San Francisco. Here’s what went down there, apart from the selfies, pics of fans going berserk and the cast members dancing and entertaining those gathered, and the customised goodies which they all diligently showed off on…well…Twitter.The house was left open to a live interaction with the cast of the movie, set for a Diwali release. Not just those present at the venue, but fans from all over the world were encouraged to tweet their questions, the best of which would be posed to the stars and eventually posted on the Twitter India tweet handle. And here are the ones that made it.
When asked what it took for actor Shah Rukh Khan to get into shape and sculpt the famous eight-pack abs, King Khan said, “I was injured during the shooting of the movie in February sometime. And then I got really pissed off that I keep getting injured and that I am really unfit. So sometime during end of Feb or March first week I started and we used it in the film. It took me five to six months to get in this shape, but let me tell everyone, exercising is only five per cent of the deal. The rest all depends on your eating habits.”
Asked to pick one thing from his wishlist that he’d like to see come true, SRK said, “I would like to make a big film studio. So if somebody gives me land I would like to make a big, technologically advanced studio there, that is my dream.”
Actor Abhishek Bachchan took his cheeky humour to a whole new level when asked what bit he enjoyed the most, the heist or the dance. Abhishek said, “Most definitely the songs. I don’t think apart from Shah Rukh and Deepika anybody qualifies as a dancer, but everyone really danced from their heart and we had a blast. It was a lot of fun. Vivaan is a really good dancer … come on dance for them on Indiawaaley.”
The cast of Happy New Year – SRK, Deepika, Abhishek, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan – and director Farah Khan were also at the Google office before stopping by Twitter HQ. The film, which has been heavily promoted on a whirlwind tour of USA, releases on October 24.
