With the RA.One release a mere 20 days away, Shah Rukh Khan seems to be waking up with one bright idea every day. Having roped in superstar Rajinikanth for a scene in the opus, Khan has now approached yet another superstar, Amitabh Bachchan to up the film's star quotient further.
The Big B will now be seen (or rather heard) lending his baritone for the voice over in RA.One. In fact, he will be dubbing for the same today.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror, "SRK is doing all that he can to make RA.One a success. This is his dream project. First he got his good friends Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra to do cameos.
Then SRK wanted Rajinikanth to be a part of his project. People thought it was crazy since Rajini sir was still recuperating from his illness. But Rajini sir, despite his health issues, agreed to come to Mumbai and shoot for the scene. After the shoot, everyone thought that the film was finally complete. Obviously SRK had other plans. He has now convinced Amitabh Bachchan to lend his voice to RA.One."
"SRK wants Big B to do the voiceover for an extremely important sequence in the film. Anubhav Sinha, the director was also keen on having someone to do the voiceover," added the source.
In fact, when Khan approached Bachchan, the superstar immediately agreed to be a part of the superhero flick. "There is immense respect between SRK and Amitji. The dubbing will take place at a suburban studio on Thursday," informed the source.
Anubhav Sinha, the director of Ra.One confirmed the news and added, "Amitji has been kind enough. We needed someone special to do this voiceover in the film. Also, the project will now get blessings from the people we have loved and respected for years.
God is kind to me. I had SRK, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt. Now I even have Rajinikanth sir and Mr Amitabh Bachchan in my film. I feel blessed."
