Shah Rukh Khan's Happy New Year trailer launch: New look Abhishek Bachchan steals the show!

Who would’ve thought that at a Shah Rukh Khan movie event, the one person who will impress people would be the same person ad-man Prahlad Kakkar once accused of delivering 17 flops in a row? Well, Shah Rukh Khan is King Khan, and we adore him. But it was Abhishek Bachchan who we fell in love with, as he sashayed down the ramp at the Manish Malhotra fashion show organised for the Happy New Year trailer.

Abhishek looked younger, absolutely handsome, suave, fitter than ever before, and happier! Looks like spending quality time with wifey Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya has done wonders to him, along with a new fitness regime. Of course, the credit also goes to Shah Rukh and Happy New Year director Farah Khan for making Abhishek look so good in terms of infusing positivity. ‘Cos just recently at the Pro Kabaddi League event, Abhishek in a sporty avatar obviously didn’t look like this.

As for Jr Bachchan’s look in Happy New Year for his character Nandu Bhide, we’re not so sure we like it. But at the Happy New Year trailer launch, the new look Abhishek Bachchan truly won us over! He was respectful of Shah Rukh and praised him on stage, but also snatched away the mic a couple of times to make his point. But it was all in good humor, and Shah Rukh was gracious.

We hope Abhishek wins more praise for his role in Happy New Year than he did for his same ol’ cop act in Aamir Khan’s blockbuster Dhoom 3.
