Everybody is aware that Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan was bowled over with South Superstar Rajinikanth’s spectacular Sci-Fi film ROBOT (ENTHIRAN in Tamil- 2010) and had decided to produce a similar Sc-Fi film, which he did with RA.ONE (2011).
However despite a more expensive budget, an equally hi-fi special effects and multi star cast RA.ONE, RA.ONE failed to achieve even 10% of what Rajinikanth’s ROBOT did!
What is surprising is that to get his movie the ‘Midas Touch’ Shah Rukh Khan had even requested the ‘Thalivar’ Rajinikanth to do a cameo in RA.ONE, which he obliged. Tragically even Rajinikanth’s special appearance could not save the film from drowning.
Though Shah Rukh Khan had intentionally ended RA.ONE with an open end climax so that he could easily launch its sequel but regrettably the disastrous debacle of the film at the box-office clipped all his wings to produce a sequel.
However now the buzz is that Shah Rukh Khan has expressed his desire to make the sequel of RA.ONE and has even decided to name it G.ONE!
According a report in a daily national newspaper Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly quoted, “Today, technology has changed. In the last 5 years, I have learnt a lot about technology myself. So we are trying to make it bigger and better. RA.ONE sequel is definitely happening. We will call it G.ONE this time.”
It seems Shah Rukh Khan is feeling perturbed ever since Rajinikanth’s sequel of ROBOT (ENTHIRAN) has hit headline. Also SRK must be amazed at the enormous publicity ROBOT - 2 (ENTHIRAN-2) is generating hence to bank on the same publicity he has decided to make the sequel of RA.ONE little realizing he is competing with the lethal combination of the great actor Rajinikanth and the genius filmmaker Shanker.
It may be noted the duo are known for minting gold whenever they joined hands. Remember – the blockbusters, SIVAJI (THE BOSS) and ENTHIRAN (ROBOT).
