“Happy New Year” starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone is set for the biggest release worldwide on 24 October.
The musical heist drama, which is said to be the longest film of 2014, has created one more record by taking its screen count total to 6,000 screens worldwide.
The makers of “Happy New Year” will release the film in 5,000 screens in India and 1,000 screens abroad, according to report. This is the highest screen count ever recorded for any Bollywood film.
The highest India screen count recorded for Bollywood film is 4,500 screens. Be it the recent film “Bang Bang” or last year’s “Dhoom 3″ the big-budget films were released in less than 5,000 screens in India.
But “Happy New Year” has shattered that record with big margin.
