For yrs, the press went to town about the ‘enmity’ between Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Every little word that was says and unspoken was blown up and the chasm between the two celebs increased. But it looks Ra.One has become different all that. Or let’s put it this way: Shah Rukh’s desperation to make sure that his film gets the highest hype has resulted in him pulling out all stops in that direction.
After getting Rajnikanth fully briefed for a cameo in his sci-fi thriller, Shahrukh now has in a position to rope in Amitabh Bachchan for a voice-over to present a game based on the super hero film. Amitabh, known for his different baritone, drove down a couple of days back to do a voice-over for the film. He left sound designer Resul Pookutty surprised by his talent and skill.
“He came and completed his work in no time. We wanted him to launch the game ‘RA.One’ in the movie in his voice. His appearance has changed the full movie. I wanted to have Big B engaged in our movie somehow. Now the launch of the game is in his style. This is the best method I could bring Big B into the venture,” says Pookutty.
It’s not as if Big B has avoided SRK’s productions. Earlier, he’d performed a cameo for his ‘Paheli’.
