“He came, He saw , He conquered” would be the correct saying for Shah Rukh Khan’s Tamil RA.One audio and trailer launch.
SRK himself was the host, anchor and cynosure of all eyes at the launch. He danced to the Chamak Chalo...number which was the highlight.
The launch was at 10am in the morning at Sathyam Cinemas. The special guest at the launch were Mani Ratnam and his wife Suhasini, Soundarya Rajinikanth, Santosh Sivan and Abirami Ramanathan who is distributing the film in TN & Kerala.
At the launch, SRK made it clear that he thinks south filmmakers especially those from Kollywood are the best in the business.
Said SRK: “ The south industry is something different, actually the best in the country and the most professional. I used to get up at 5am when I was shooting for Mani sir’s films. Mani Ratnam is definitely the best director in the country. The cinema here is the most advanced in terms of technology and content.”
He personally went to each of the guests on stage and got their views on the trailer and songs of RA.One. The star made a special thanks to Soundarya Rajinikanth for going out of her way to help him get that cameo from Rajinikanth.
Shah Rukh Khan on Rajinikanth: “ As a struggling artist I remember going to a Mumbai studio and trying to meet Rajinikanth on the sets of Mukul Anand film. Now it is great honour he is doing a cameo in RA.One. I have not seen such kind of humility and he is the biggest star with a universal appeal.”
SRK also made it clear that RA.One will be releasing on Diwali day (Oct 26) in 3200 screens worldwide in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and German.In select screens it will be shown in 3D.
