After breaking box office records, Shah Rukh Khan and his Happy New Year team has one more reason to celebrate: the library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has selected the film's screenplay for its permanent Motion Picture Scripts Core Collection.

Produced by Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd, this Farah Khan-directed movie collected Rs 350 crore worldwide in three weeks since it was released just before Diwali this year.

A press release from the production house said that the development will make the script accessible to students, filmmakers, writers, actors and others from the field of cinema, for the purpose of research.
