The 40-year-old took to microblogging website Twitter to share his excitement.
"Tomorrow (Monday) we start another marathon schedule of 'Happy New Year'. Looking forward meeting everyone on the set after our Dubai schedule. Should refresh my script," read his tweet Sunday.
Deepika will be seen in a whole new avatar in the film. She will essay an out-of-work bar dancer from Maharashtra.
Her character in the film influences the lives of SRK, Abhishek, Boman, Sonu and Vivaan, as she will help them win a dance trophy.
"Happy New Year" will release in October next year.
