Speculations were rife that Jackie Chan has been approached for a role in Shahrukh Khan’s first sci-fi film Ra.One. But now it’s confirmed that the Chinese-American actor Tom Wu is going to be part of the film, and not Jackie Chan.
For those who don’t know Tom Wu, he is a martial arts expert, who was earlier seen in films like Revolver, Shanghai Knights, Batman Begins and Tomb Raider II.
Welcoming the actor to his team SRK tweets, “...a big welcome to Tom Wu in the film cast. He is so humble and such a sport... really nice to have him on board.”
As for now, SRK is not in India but in London busy with the ‘Ra.One’ shoot and also down with cold and fever. “Throat feeling better now... can go on the sets and make some noise to feel important hopefully,” scribbles Khan on his Twitter page.
The movie also features Arjun Rampal, who has even gone bald for his role, while actress Kareena Kapoor plays SRK’s love interest.
