Shahrukh Khan it seems is preferring to shoot Anubhav Sinha (Dus, Cash) directed action thriller Ra.1 rather than going in for Farah Khan's Happy New Year after he completes My Name Is Khan. Both Ra.1 and Happy New Year are being made under the King Khan's home banner Red Chillies Entertainment.
A source reveals, "Shahrukh Khan was earlier in two minds whether to go on floors first with Farah's film or Anubhav Sinha's. But apparently he has made up his mind to do the action adventure movie Ra.1, which has a superhero backdrop. It will begin shooting from early next year and will be extensively shot on foreign locations. Shahrukh has already begun preparing for the role by working out on his physique and is again aiming to acquire six-pack abs."
He was also recently quoted stating, “I want to put on my tights and my kids blanket on my back. I want to do this film for my children. I"ve always wanted to make a superhero film, but I never had six-pack-abs. Now that I have them, I want to do this. It"s not an animation film, as many people believe; I would like to clarify that. It"s a live action film.'"
Farah Khan's film, our source adds, will now go on floors in the end of 2010.
