The Most Awaited Ra-One

The Baadshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan is yet ready again for a new exciting venture Ra.One. Under the direction of Anubhav Sinha, the most anticipated Ra.One is a sci-fi superhero movie starring Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal as the main leads. This will be under Shahrukh Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment and the date of release is set to be somewhere in October. But to everyone’s surprise the movie is planned to be released in 3D format till now. The film is also expected to have some excellent stunts from the star itself, and no doubt he is putting his heart and soul in it.

With extraordinary special effects, the movie is supposed to have a lot of international hype attached to it. Hans Zimmer has been approached by Shahrukh to compose the background score and famous singer Akon has already recorded a song with Vishal Shekhar. Further, Chinese American actor Tom Wu would also be a part of the film. Shahrukh is also trying to rope in some other international sensations and is not leaving any stone unturned for his dream project.

The question arises that is this the time to break Shahrukh Khan’s cliché romantic image?  This can be quite a task for the audiences to accept the ‘King of Romance’ in an entirely different superhero image. Till now, Shahrukh has pleased the viewers by romantic masterpieces like ‘DilwaleDulhania Le Jayenge’ , ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ and ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’. Now, it is an entire genre and image conversion and of course involves enormous risk. There has been an unending debate on this project since SRK and Anubhav Sinha started working on it and curiosity amongst everybody in the industry seems no bound. It is believed that Shahrukh has invested magnanimous amounts for setting infrastructure in order to create visual effects that match up to the international standards and the movie is supposed to be the costliest and biggest film ever in India. The film is been shot in parts of Mumbai’s film city and Goa & rest of the shooting will be done in other countries.

Let’s wait for October now, and see whether this dream project would be capable enough to create history like the earlier Shahrukh projects.
