Ra.One Might Have Some Parts In 3D

Shah Rukh Khan might have parts of his upcoming Diwali release Ra.One in 3D,

Yeh, isnt it exciting ? if this happened, Ra.One will be the third film in Indian cinema having 3D,

Shah Rukh Said at IMAX Wadala in an interview while promoting his film Ra.One,

Some part of the film we are trying to do in 3D and Primefocus is doing that for us. They have a technology with which after you have shot the film, it could be converted into 3D,

But there are reservations on it because you know that we have to shoot that with different cameras, the same trailer, actually in a matter of fact, we are going to check out in few days and if it comes out well, then parts of the film I would like to do in 3D as it would attract the younger audience.

It should look as good as acting, for sure. I think 3D has to be shot in a different way but it is post 3D. If the whole team approves the test we would go for it,

I have started promoting the film from January, almost five months ago. The first ad came out on Jan 3. We know superheroes through comics or stories or if we take from mythology then we knew who was Karna, who was Abhimanyu? In our country we don’t have any such character, which we could chose for our film.

I wanted to introduce the character G.One so that by the time you go to watch the film, you kind of know the power, and you have seen a part of it jumping around, flying and feel that you know the superhero. That’s the whole intention.

What I thought was if I could introduce that G.One is made of electricity, made of pixels, he can fly, he can see through things half the jobs done as now you know the character,

When he was asked, recently release trailer does not have the title character in it, why so ? he said,

You won’t get to see RA.One until the film releases. We would reveal the character of ‘Ra.One’ slowly,

G.One is the life giver, who saves life. He is the hero what I am playing the film. RA.One is actually Random Access Version One but it also stands for Raavan.

Mythologically, amajority consider him as a bad person made of the world’s 10 most evil brains. That’s what the ten heads of Raavan’s head represent and here it’s like the connotation of 10 evil happenings of the world that sums of to make a character ‘RA.One’,

Everyone asked Shah Rukh to have the film named G.One insted of Ra.One, still he kept Ra.One, Shah Rukh has reason beind it,

Many of my friends, Karan(Johar), Adi (Aditya Chopra) suggested me to change the name to G.One. But whenever I have seen any superhero or larger than life film, including in our ‘Sholay’ or ‘Mr. India”, we very much talked about Gabbar Singh or Mogambo or Shakal.

So I thought if I keep it ‘RA.One’ it would be bit different. People might be confused and take me as RA.One but it is not so. Evil doesn’t have any face, that’s also logic behind keeping this name.
