Actor Shahrukh Khan, who is busy promoting his upcoming movie Ra.One, has revealed that he had approached several directors including his friends Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra to direct his mega-budget, which is now being directed by Anubhav Sinha. But everyone backed out of the project in fear.
Shahrukh Khan was recently on UTV Stars' 'Up Close and Personal with PZ'. Talking to actress Preity Zinta, the Bollywood superstar said, "I went to all directors to make this film ('RA.One') and even my own friends like Karan or Aditya. They all are 'lallu' (idiots) I say. I wanted to do something more than a romantic comedy."
His superhero film Ra.One is one of the most expensive films in India. Many think that Shahrukh Khan officially broke after he invested heavily on the movie. But the actor says that he is happy that he has bought something to India, which has never been seen before. He hopes, “If this film does well, it will go down the history and will be remembered."
