While the anticipation with the movie is huge, whether it will be a hit or flop, whether it will mint 100 crores and so on. The cast and crew of the film, Shahrukh Khan with wife Gauri, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, Vivaan Shah, director Farah Khan and even music directors Vishal and Shekar were present at the grand premiere event of Happy New Year movie that was held in Dubai.
Yes, knowing how flamboyant Shahrukh Khan is, his home production banner decided to host the premiere of the movie in Dubai. Before the grand special screening, there was a small press conference that was held where the cast was present to address the media. At this press conference Shahrukh Khan was seen getting a tad to emotional and called it an ‘overwhelming and emotional' journey that had come full circle to Dubai.
The movie shooting had largely taken place in Dubai and so the cast had gotten a little emotional, Shahrukh said, "When I come to Dubai, it is not even my second home; it is home. I have a house here. I really love this place." He further added, "I will not say we made a film in Dubai that will make this city successful; this place presents itself as a beautiful city and we are riding on that beauty. We are riding on the beauty of its people. It is the new hub of the world. And it is us who will benefit from it. I feel more at home here than back home sometimes. I am glad that Farah made a film that was essentially set in Dubai, it had a purpose for being here."
