If not Shah Rukh Khan, who will Deepika Padukone romance in Happy New Year?

Looks like their upcoming film Happy New Year will not have the Chennai Express couple recreate their romantic chemistry again!

Deepika Padukone plays a bar dancer named Mohini in Happy New Year. Shah Rukh Khan plays a ‘loser’ named Charlie who brings together five other losers like him to rob a bank and engage in the biggest dance-heist of the season.

We were expecting some standard romance between the two main leads SRK and Deepika and expecting them to recreate some of the good-old Om Shanti Om magic. But looks like SRK-Dippy fans will be deprived of that joy…

A source close to the HNY production reveals, “Deepika Padukone is more like one of the boys in the caper. She plays a bar dancer who is called by Shah Rukh Khan to teach his team of heisters how to dance in a global dance competition. The mutual attraction between SRK and Deepika is hinted at very gently. There is no attempt to cash in on the Chennai Express chemistry between the pair.”

Well, those who are disappointed, don’t be! HNY promises some high-octane action scenes and spectacular dance performances. Moreover, we believe that romance can’t not happen if King Khan and Deepika are sharing one frame!
