New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan on Friday took to Instagram to share some of the memories from the set of his 2014 film Happy New Year. Abhishek Bachchan acted with Shahrukh Khan in the film along with Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah, and several others.

The actor is going to complete 20 years in the film industry and to mark this, the junior Bachchan has started a series on Instagram which he titled “Road To 20” and has been sharing all his work in the industry starting from his debut film Refugee which was released in 2000.

In the series of “Road To 20”, the Bol Bachchan actor Abhishek shared his work in the film Happy New Year from the year 2014. He wrote a heartfelt note reminiscing the moments from the Dubai-based shoot film HNY and revealed that Farah Khan had got the idea of the film after Main Hoon Na but it didn't work out at that time.

"It was such a happy film and one of the most memorable and fun shoots I’ve ever been a part of. Never ever did Shah or Farah differentiate between any of the actors. We were all one BIG gang!," he said

"Each actor counted themselves so lucky to be a part of such an extravagant production. Smiles and laughter every day. We worked together, played (FIFA) together, worked out together, ate together, traveled together, rehearsed together, went out together, and partied together. The only thing we didn’t do ( thank god) was sleep in the same room together ( Farah isn’t at her best early in the morning). All of this was only possible due to the leadership, friendship, and largesse of Shahrukh. He selflessly allowed us to hop onto the HNY express and took us on one of our most memorable journeys," he further revealed.

Closing the note he wrote, "Teem Diamond forever!"

#RoadTo20 Year-2014 #HappyNewYear A film filled with some of my most favourite people. @farahkhankunder had discussed the idea of HNY with me soon after Main hoon na. I guess it didn’t work out then and she went on to make #OmShantiOm ( she had me in a cameo in the film too ). When they ( @iamsrk and Farah ) finally decided to make Happy new year I was the first one in line to sign up. It was such a happy film and one of the most memorable and fun shoots I’ve ever been a part of. Never ever did Shah or Farah differentiate between any of the actors. We were all one BIG gang! The outdoor in Dubai at the magnificent Atlantis hotel was like staying in a college dorm, and Farah was the headmistress/matron trying to discipline and herd this unruly bunch of kids ( yes, @boman_irani you too!! ) I didn’t even realise when we started and finished the shoot. It was such a happy unit for such a happy film. Each actor counted themselves so lucky to be a part of such an extravagant production. Smiles and laughter everyday. We worked together, played (FIFA) together, worked out together, ate together, travelled together, rehearsed together, went out together and partied together. The only thing we didn’t do ( thank god) was sleep in the same room together ( Farah isn’t at her best early in the morning 🤣). All of this was only possible due to the leadership, friendship and largesse of Shahrukh. He selflessly allowed us to hop onto the HNY express and took us on one of our most memorable journeys. I can go on and on about the cast, the crew/production and our experience. I feel a true measure of a wonderful memory is that it always brings a smile to your face when you think about it; and when I think about the time we made Happy New Year I ALWAYS smile. I will never be able to thank Shah and Farah enough for making me a part of this film, ever. Teem Diamond forever! #NanduBhideDimaagMeKeede @deepikapadukone @boman_irani @sonu_sood @therealvivaanshah @apnabhidu @sarahjanedias @anupampkher I love you all.
