Rajini and Robot rattle Shahrukh Khan
The message is on the wall. Rajinikanth’s ‘Endhiran’ and ‘Robot’ have changed the dynamics in Bollywood. Shahruk Khan who feels for the missed opportunity to have done ‘Robot’ in place of Rajinikanth is holding closed door meetings to make his upcoming film ‘Ra.One’, a step above ‘Endhiran-The Robot’.
SRK has realized that the audience would be expecting from him some thing more than ‘Robot’ now. So he is burning some midnight oil to contemplate the differences he had to make with his film.
‘Ra.One’ is also a sci-fi super hero film. Lately, sources say, Shahruk Khan had called his creative team including the director Anubhav Sinha and sound engineer Resul Pookutty to his house and discussed the changes that need to be made so that ‘Ra.One’ comes very close to ‘Endhiran - The Robot’ in size and stature.
According to sources, the new film of SRK will now be a gaming movie while retaining the emotional quotients and the drama. They further say that the movie is being designed in such a way that the audience will be able to participate in the film and play the ‘Ra.One’ game at the climax. This kind of participatory film is a first of its kind, we guess.
All said and done what ever happens in the name of competitions it is all good for Indian cinema. If Indian cinema grows the ultimate beneficiaries are the audience. So we welcome this healthy competition. All the best SRK!
