Groupon has teamed up with the King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan to bring itscustomers the exciting opportunity to audition for the most hotly anticipated Bollywood film of the year, Happy New Year.
Available exclusively on Groupon.com.au, Aussies can buy a ticket to audition, giving them access to:
• a private online audition portal;
• Shah Rukh Khanʼs purpose-filmed tutorial offering a crash course in
Bollywood acting and dancing;
• an official movie poster autographed by Shah Rukh Khan; and
• a certificate of participation signed by Film Director Farah Khan.
Groupon Australia & New Zealand CEO, Alistair Venn says: “For everyone who has ever dreamed of being a movie star, this is your opportunity to make that dream a reality.
“For less than the price of a movie ticket, weʼre giving people the chance to star in a real Bollywood blockbuster, alongside one of the biggest movie stars in the world.”
Commenting on the launch of this unique deal, Shah Rukh Khan shared words of encouragement for budding actors: “Weʼre glad to have partnered with Groupon for this contest. I wish everyone participating the very best. So give your all to the audition and be a part of ʻHappy New Yearʼ. I’ll see you on the sets!”
Film Director & Choreographer Farah Khan is calling for people from all walks of life to audition, no matter what the skill level: “I have always found the uniqueness of an artist interesting – so no matter what style of dance you know – good, bad or ugly – if you can make it unique then I am waiting to see you on the sets of Happy New Year. Break a leg!”
After the first round of online voting, 500 shortlisted candidates will audition in Mumbai in front of the movie production team, after which the top ten performers will be chosen to perform in front of Film Director Farah Khan.
The lucky winner will get ʻstar-likeʼ treatment with a personal vanity van, personal assistant and make-up artist, in addition to being appointed as a character in the movie and his or her name appearing in the movie credits.
This deal is available exclusively on Groupon in India, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
