Shahrukh in lieu to make his home production movie Ra One a major success is leaving no stone unturned.This time his formula is to rope in the international and well known artist and stars in the project to give this desi superhero flick an international and high tech look. For this he has already hired Akon the famous rapper of St Louis to sing two major numbers in his film.They were Chammak Challo and Criminal among which former is already a super duper hit song in the market.
Next he casted Chinese-American actor Tom Wu after Jackie Chan turn down his offer.Tom is a martial arts expert and has starred in films like Revolver, Shanghai Knights and Batman Begins.The production team is also international for the movie, including, film editor Martin Walsh, amongst others from Hollywood. Shooting of the film is being done in India, UK and USA. For example, scenes were shot at Century21 studios in USA, where Shahrukh Khan filmed various special effects and model scenes.
If this was not enough Shahrukh has rope in the very renowned electronic dance music band of London The Prodigy to give the background music along with Vishal and Shekhar. The Prodigy band came to India for a music concert in January 2011 and after that they started their work for Ra.One . The Prodigy are famous for massive hit songs like ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ and ‘Firestarter’ and other popular hits like ‘Charly,’ ‘Out of Space,’ ‘No Good (Start the Dance),’ ‘Poison,’ ‘Breathe,’ ‘Spitfire,’ and ‘Warrior’s Dance.’ Their hit ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ which was released in 1997 featured the eastern flavoured vocals of UK singer Shahin Badar, which describes the openness and creativity of The Prodigy to produce such fusion tracks.
In short in order to wrap up this article I’d like to say Best of Luck to Shahrukh for his latest bollywood movie Ra.One and hope it live up to the hype or rather go beyond that.So excited to watch and can’t wait till Diwali.
