After the bumper success of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Happy New Year”, filmmaker Farah Khan has one more achievement to add to it. The movie’s script has been included into the Oscars library.

The filmmaker took to social networking website Twitter to share her joy and delight over the news and thanked her co-writers for penning the script. The heist drama, with dollops of dance and music, minted Rs.108.86 crore, becoming a movie with the biggest opening weekend at the box office in India.

“1 more reason 2 celebrate!! #HNY script goes to the Oscar library!! Bigg kiss to my co writers @mayurpuri n Althea k,” she tweeted on Sunday.

The film had a starry ensemble with Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah and was released Oct 24,

Farah Khan is one of the few female directors to carve a niche for herself with a number of successful films like “Main Hoon Na” and “Om Shanti Om”. The filmmaker will be attending the closing ceremony of the 20th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF) on Monday to showcase and emphasise women’s power.

“Now en route to kolkatta film fest closing ceremony!! Being felicitated n also felicitating the Best woman director there!! More power!!,” she further posted.
