Choreographer-director Farah Khan hopes the success of "Chennai Express" helps her next directorial venture "Happy New Year", which she is making with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role.

SRK co-produced his "Chennai Express", which had Deepika Padukone in the female lead, with UTV and the romantic comedy is reaping gold at the box office. Farah is interpreting the success of the film as a good news for her movie because Bollywood Badshah is producing her project as well.

"I am very happy at the success of 'Chennai Express'. It has broken all records. Shah Rukh is the hero and producer of my film. Now he will come on the sets of my film filled with more energy and hopefully will shell out more money for my film. I am very happy," Farah told reporters Thursday.

She was speaking on the sidelines of the curtain raiser of Lakme Fashion Week Winter-Festive 2013 .

Farah is repeating hit pair of SRK-Deepika in "Happy New Year". She worked with them in "Om Shanti Om", which also marked Deepika's debut in Hindi filmdom.

Farah also informed "Happy New Year", which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, is set to go on floors next month.

"The schedule will start September 1st in Dubai," said Farah.

    Maybe she was joking? If it's true though, then that's sad. What if SRK dishes out more money for Farah's film and it's not a hit (even if it stars SRK with Deeps)? That's money going down the drain for a silly film project.

    Just because Chennai Express was a hit with the duo doesn't mean Farah's film will be a hit. And SRK needs to stop doing favors for his friends like FK and get back to actually acting.

    love SRK sooo much '
    and farah sorry to say but you are soo selfish. when you saw ke SRK ka bad time chall raha hai, toh apne husband ke saath SRK ki insult karne ka try kiya, and dusre actors ke saath friendship ki and when you saw ke you was wrong SRK is still the king of bollywood toh agayi face utha ke waapas . sacha friend bad time mein bhi saath rehta hai ,
    and yeah plz keep your husband away from the film , Thees maar khan dekh ke maine apne life ke 3 hours waste kiye and thank god maine joker nahi dekhi because i knew flop hogi , so plzzz us so called director and writer ko dur rakhna and don't spoil the script , anyway main hoon na and OSO was hit because of brilliant acting not because of you
    SRK love you a lot hope this film works for you and deepika you 2
    all the best 2 srk and deepika
