Shah Rukh Khan and the team of "Happy New Year" who are shooting in Dubai donned traditional Arabic wear - kandura for men and abbaya for women - for a press met here.

"The idea of donning up this local look comes from Abhishek Bachchan so we all would thank him for that. We are happy to be dressed like this... when we looked at mirror, many of us look like locals,"Shah Rukh said during the press conference to announce collaboration with Dubai Film and TV Commission.

While Shah Rukh walked the press conference donning a black kandura, rest of the actors wore the traditional white kandura. Leading ladies Deepika Padukone and Farah Khan wore black abbaya.

Shah Rukh says its a wonderful experience to shoot in Dubai.

"Dubai is a beautiful city. It has a great scenic balance of ancient and modern architecture. Its not just the shopping capital of the Middle East but is a perfect location for a film shoot. We have been shooting for our film since Sep 2nd Dubai is like home for me and I have loved every bit of experience of shooting for 'Happy New Year' here."

Dubai Film and TV Commission in collaboration with Atlantis, The Palm are extending their full support for the smooth production of the hotly-anticipated Bollywood film. The first schedule of "Happy New Year" which is currently going on in Dubai will perhaps continue till Sep 25.

AB looks soooooooooo hot

Anonymous's picture

I read thereafter was a big party at SRK's house. That seems to be his biggest interest at the moment. Celebrate party and the wife is at home with the sick kid. I am surprised that Priyanka is not in Dubai yet. Can not be long.

Priyanka was/is there. Since Wednesday ;-)

my comment has been rejected twice?? I wrote how I experienced racism in Dubai. Indian's are treated like low class workers. Ppl in Dubai are nice to Rich ppl only. You notice it at the airport, the staff frowns at brown ppl and smiles at whites and arabs.

deepika looks usual. abhishek- dumb

@ ZENNY, didn't you like Om Shanti Om and Main Hoon Na? Personally I thought they were really well made movies and very entertaining. :)

Boman Irani............Legendary!!

Abishek is in the movie is a supporting cast. Is this why Aishwarya rejected the movie? She doesn't want to act as a leading lady with someone else in a movie where the hubby is just a supporting character?

WoW! They all look great in the traditional kandura:-)...God bless them!!
