Call me biased, but when it comes to Shah Rukh Khan, there’s nothing that I don’t LOVE! Needless to say, I totally enjoyed watching his latest release, Happy New Year. Packed with comedy, action, romance, drama and loads of fun moments, this flick left me with an ear-to-ear grin plastered on my face.

Considering the movie has garnered a collection of more than 44 crores on the opening day, it’s quite evident that it had a similar impact on thousands of others too! So I decided to pick out 21 things about this film that made me (and maybe you too) smile.

1. Shah Rukh Khan’s KICKASS dialogue delivery

“Duniya mein do tarah ke log hote hainwinners aur losers.”

Kismat bahut kutti cheez hai.”
