|Shahrukh Khan has put his blood, sweat and enormous money to make Ra.One. But the biggest release of the year, which will be releasing next week on Diwali, is not yet complete. The film’s entire team is still working 24/7 on its post-production.
Since Shahrukh Khan is on a whirlwind tour promoting the film, director Anubhav Sinha is spending his nights and days at the studio overseeing how ‘Ra.One’ is shaping up. The director tells a daily, “The film is complete. Only the finishing touches are on now.” Sinha was earlier sure of having the ‘Ra.One’ prints ready by September 15, but is slogging now.
Producer Shahrukh Khan who himself is having sleepless nights promoting ‘Ra.One’ is checking on the progress regularly. Anubhav Sinha explains why the delay has happened. The director admits that his personal inhibitions have been responsible for stalling the film plus the movie is releasing in five versions - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, English subtitled and 3D. So it’s five times the work.
Though Sinha claims that the movie is ready to go for the final print, he won’t let go of ‘Ra.One’ till he is completely satisfied with the final outcome. According to him, all the big movies get ready just a week before release to avoid piracy.
But the countdown has already begun!
