Here are 10 things you should know about Shah Rukh Khan‘s RA.One:

Shah Rukh Khan In Ra.One Movie

Ra.One in 3D

Ra.One will be converted from the 2D format, in which it has been shot, to the 3D version. The conversion process is on right now, being executed by the post-production studio Prime Focus, which has done digital 2D-3D conversion for many Hollywood films. Thus the film will see a simultaneous release in two versions, 3D and 2D.

Ra.One In Tamil, Telugu &  maybe in German too!

The superhero movie will be released simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil dubbed versions. Plans are also afoot to dub/subtitle the film in German for a separate release later on.

For Yash Johar & SRK’s Kids

While SRK has dedicated his movie to Yash Johar, his mentor and Karan Johar’s father, Shah Rukh also made sure that the film would be made in such a manner that his kids, Aryan and Suhana, would know that their dad is also ‘cool’.

Biggest Budget Ever

Although different sources cite varying figures, Ra.One is undoubtedly the most expensive Bollywood movie made so far. The last known costliest film was the Akshay Kumar starrer Blue.

Super Secret Villain

Although Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero character, G.One, has been revealed to the audience through the promos, the character of the villain, Ra.One (played by Arjun Rampal), has been deliberately kept under wraps. “Catch me in the theatres this Diwali,” quips Arjun.

TV To Big Screen

Director Anubhav Sinha was inspired by a television commercial, which depicted a robot being controlled by a child, for making Ra.One. He took the idea of the film to Shah Rukh, who loved it so much that he decided to come on board as a producer too.

Inspiration?

The poster of the movie looks quite like one of the posters of the superhero movie Batman Begins. But Shah Rukh has rubbished all apprehensions about the poster, promos or movie being inspired from any foreign film. He joked, “My film might be inspired from all the movies of the world yet it is very unique, something that you have never seen before.”

Dream Project

More than anything else, Ra.One is SRK’s pet project. The Bollywood superstar has been working relentlessly for the last two years on making the movie the best he can. For this, Shah Rukh got his cast and crew the best support he could find, from all over the world. And he spared neither money nor effort for this. “When we asked for Akon, SRK got him to sing for us!” exclaim music director duo Vishal-Shekhar. Adds director Anubhav Sinha, “Out of the thousands of special effects in Ra.One, the biggest special effect is all never-ending stream of money that came out of Mannat (SRK’s bungalow).”

Double The Heat

Shah Rukh Khan, who plays a double role in Ra.One, needed to wear a skin-hugging synthetic suit as his superhero costume. Says Shah Rukh, “We were shooting certain portions of the film in the sweltering heat of Mumbai in the middle of summer. It was very difficult doing all the stunts with the costume on, but when I looked at the final product, I feel it was worth our while to work so hard.”

Superhero Story

Shah Rukh believes that Ra.One is going to set the standard for films that will be made after it. “Why is America the only country that has superheroes? Why can’t we have them?” he asks. He also welcomes the fact that many other superhero films (Krissh, Drona) were being made by others in the industry.
