Ra 1 will be Shahrukh's home production and will be directed by Anubhav Sinha who had directed movies like Tum Bin, Cash and Aap ko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. Shahrukh will play a superhero for the first time in his career joining the league of Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan. The movie will be the first of its kind in Bollywood using Hollywood like graphics.
The movie was scheduled to start shooting but sources close to the director say he planning to roll his camera by the mid of 2010. Anubhav Sinha confirmed that the shooting has been postponed as it will require Shahrukh to do some heavy stunts. Ra 1 is a very special movie for Shahrukh as his son Aryan had asked him to play a superhero.
