This year is likely to see the release of two big films with similar sounding titles. Yes, we are indeed referring to Mani Ratnam's Raavan and Shahrukh Khan's home production Ra.1. However, the two similar sounding films are as different as chalk and cheese when it comes to their plotlines. While Mani's Abhi-Ash starrer is a modern-day adaptation of the mythological epic Ramayan, SRK's flick is a highly stylise film with a lot of gizmos and gadgets.
Coming to Ra.1, while it is known that SRK plays a super-hero kind of character in the film, what is not known is the fact that the title Ra.1 is the acronym for 'Random Access-Version One'. This fact has been confirmed by the superstar himself on Twitter. Says SRK, "Ra.1 means randon access version one, will understand when u see the film. Ra.1 site will be up soon/have no film with Kajol or Yashji right now/don't dance too well, I just try hard/I am the hero in Ra.1."
Meanwhile with his close friend and CEO of Red Chillies Entertainment- Bobby Chawla still admitted in the hospital, SRK has to even manage all the work related to production of Ra.1. SRK tweets, "Yes...wish Bobby my friend gets well sooner than soon. He is still in the hospital & the film is so difficult in terms of production."
Looks like Ra.1 is indeed taking a toll on SRK as he not only has to perform some heavy duty action sequences but also has to manage all aspects related to production.
