Last week, South superstar Kamal Hassan's presence at B-Town Baadshah Shahrukh Khan's Akon party at Mannat raised many eyebrows. Apparently, Kamal has been bonding with Shahrukh and has been giving the latter valuable tips on the making of Ra.1.
Says a source, "Shahrukh has huge plans for Ra.1 and has been meeting Kamal Hassan regularly to bounce off ideas for his pet project. Shahrukh and Kamal know each other since their Hey Ram days. The two have kept in touch. King Khan respects Kamal as an actor and loves his style of filmmaking. The two superstars are quite fond of each other."
Adds the source, "While Shahrukh plays a super hero in Ra.1, he's amazed by the hard work, meticulous planning, astonishing cinematography and breathtaking graphics that Kamal brought to Dasavatharam. He has been asking the veteran actor about how to make a stunning film with great special effects. That's the reason why Kamal was spotted at Shahrukh's party last week."
Mushtaq Shiekh, co-screenwriter for Ra.1, says, "I don't know if Kamalsaab is helping Shahrukh with the film but I am not surprised to see him in Mannat because Shahrukh has been maintaining a consistent connection with him."
Shahrukh Khan was unavailable for comment.
