If Akshay Kumar had Snoop Dogg for Singh is Kinng, then Shah Rukh Khan has roped in his "fan", R&B singer Akon, for his superhero film Ra.One.
"I am a big fan of Shah Rukh and I am very familiar with his work," said Akon, who is not only singing, but also composing for Ra.One. "I will give him [Shah Rukh] a couple of versions of the song, the way I do it. And I will also integrate it with the traditional way the Bollywood films are done. I will give them options and they will decide which one to use in the film."
Shah Rukh is keeping his fingers crossed as far as Ra.One goes. "We have tried a different kind of a genre. It hasn't been tried earlier and is new to all of us," said the actor, who's doing the role because his son wants to seem him play Superman. "So we are giving our best shot and hope we succeed and it is accepted well by all," Khan said.
