‘RA.One’ superhero is a family man, says SRK

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says his forthcoming mega-budget “RA.One” has world-class technology and that the sci-fi thirller is the first film that shows a superhero living in a family.

“I have made a movie on which nobody can say that it is a second-rated technology. ‘RA.One’ will take Bollywood movies’ technology to the world. It is part of my legacy in Bollywood, which has given me so much,” said Shah Rukh.

“I want our cinema to be best in the world. The movie will leave a mark internationally,” he said. “I got inspired by a lot of superhero movies but I have made an original movie. In fact, ‘RA.One’ will be the first superhero-based movie in the world in which a superhero lives in a family. It is a family entertainer.”

Shah Rukh is currently busy promoting “RA.One”, which is releasing Oct 26, and travelling extensively to promote it. He was here Thursday for the same.

King Khan feels that the Indian film industry is well equipped to make technology-based movies.

“Everything is there in the industry but we were not making such films. We have the best theaters in the world, then why we could not make a technology based movie?” he asked.

“I talked to Resul Pookutty and he tells him that there would be several Hindi movies in which he would have given much better sound. But because of technology, he got an (Oscar) award.”

Talking about the making of the film, he said: “I used to take almost 50 minutes to wear the superhero uniform and two-and-a-half-hours to get ready completely. It took us almost eight hours to make the car scene, which is being shown in promos. I enjoyed doing all these but now I want to make romantic movies.”

When asked how much business the movie is expected to do and if it will do better than Salman Khan’s recent movies, Shah Rukh preferred not to comment.

The “RA.One” team launched a new trailer of the film in Bhopal. The trailer reveals the film’s villain, a character essayed by actor Arjun Rampal.

Shah Rukh also performed for the large audience that gathered outside the mall where the promotion took place.
