Shahrukh Khan is grateful to Rajinikanth that despite illness, he will be going all the way to Mumbai to shoot for ‘Ra.One’. Initially for Rajinikanth’s convenience, the filming was planned to take place at Ramoji Rao studio Hyderabad but later Rajinikanth himself made a decision to travel down to Mumbai and shoot his part. Rajinikath will shoot at Subash Ghai’s Whistling Woods Studio in Mumbai.
A source disclosed, “The earlier strategy was to shoot at Ramoji Rao studio in Hyderabad on October 4. But Rajinikath thought Gandhi Jayanti would be a more ideal date to start work. He considered filming in Mumbai made more impression since the movie is in Hindi.”
“The `RA.One` staff thought filming at Whistling Woods was less risky, since Ghai is an old buddy of Shah Rukh`s and would make sure the shoot went off easily,” added the source. On the other hand, Rajini’s girl Aishwarya refuted the reports of her dad filming for `RA.One`.
Even the `RA.One` staff is keeping mum on this matter but Oscar Award winner sound designer Resul Pookutty verified Rajini’s visit. He says, “I am happy that Rajinikanth will be part of Ra.One.
