If special appearances by Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt and south Indian superstar Rajnikanth weren’t enough, SRK has roped in Amitabh Bachchan as a voiceover for an important sequence in Ra One.
Director Anubhav Sinha confirmed the news “Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) has been kind enough. We needed someone special to do this voiceover in the film. Also, the project will now get blessings from the people we have loved and respected for years. God is kind to me. I had Shahrukh Khan, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt. Now I even have Rajni sir and Mr Amitabh Bachchan in my film. I feel blessed.”
A local daily quoted a source as saying “Shahrukh is doing all that he can to make RA One a success. This is his dream project. First he got his good friends Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka to do cameos. Then SRK wanted Rajnikanth to be a part of his project. People thought it was crazy since Rajni sir was still recuperating from his illness. But despite his health issues, Rajni sir agreed to come to Mumbai and shoot for the scene. After the shoot, everyone thought that the film was finally complete. Obviously SRK had other plans. He has now convinced Amitji to lend his voice to RA One.”
Less than 20 days to go now! With the expectations already sky-high, Ra One is expected to open to historic collections on October 26th.
