Happy New Year cast and crew, from Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, Vivaan Shah and Farah Khan, everybody has been promoting the movie like there is no tomorrow.
Never has a Bollywood film been promoted so much and that too on such a large scale, to the extent of the cast and crew visiting the Google and Twitter headquarters. After a long hiatus Farah Khan is back with Shahrukh Khan in Happy New Year, while the film doesn't seem to spark any curiosity, the team has left no stone un-turned when it comes to promoting the movie.
The Happy New Year team has come up with the most unique ways of promoting their movie, unique marketing strategies adopted by Shahrukh and Gauri's home production, Red Chillies Entertainment. Slam! The Tour was conducted across UK and USA and garnered huge amount of attention from people, and the fact that the underworld got involved with the concert and created a scandal, it proved to be an added bonus for promoting their movie.
On the other hand, Gauri Khan appeared on the big screen for the very first time in a scene in Om Shanti Om, and Aryan debuted in Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. So this time to make it bigger and better, SRK's wife, Gauri along with their youngest son AbRam will making a guest appearance in Happy New Year. This unique aspect will also be one of the main points in drawing the crowds to the theater for many people are curious to see the little guy make his acting debut on the big screen.
