Shahrukh was keen on watching Avatar as he likes science fiction and superhero films. He was also eager to attend the screening as the first theatrical promo of My Name is Khan released during Avatar"s screening.
He likes superhero films so much so that he is working on Ra 1, directed by Anubhav Sinha. Meanwhile, he loved Avatar a lot and wanted his children to watch it. His children were busy with school and studies last evening and couldn"t watch it. That"s why he has requested for a special screening of the film. The screening will be held on Saturday and the time and venue is yet to be decided.
Just a few weeks ago, Shahrukh"s children wanted to watch Paa and he had called up Amitabh Bachchan, requesting him for passes.
