Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, fresh from the success of

Chennai Express

, will soon be in Dubai to shoot their next film,

Happy New Year

, directed by Farah Khan.

Sources reveal that the film's cast and crew will be in the UAE for more than a month, and that one of many locations chosen is Atlantis, The Palm.

Padukone was chosen to feature opposite SRK amid extensive speculation - the filmmaker considered several actresses, including Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra.

Padukone's acclaimed role in the hit

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

earlier this year is apparently what tipped the scales. Padukone made her debut in 2007 with Farah Khan's SRK starrer

Om Shanti Om

, a story about reincarnation that proved to be a blockbuster.

Happy New Year

will be their third film together, and also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani. The film is scheduled for release next year. - The National staff
