Shah Rukh Khan, who recently went on Preity Zinta’s chat show ‘Up Close and Personal with PZ’ on UTV Star, told Preity Zinta that he has approached many directors to direct his movie ‘Ra.One’ but they all chickened out including his close friends Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar.
“I went to all directors to make this film (RA.One) and even my own friends like Karan or Aditya. They all are lallu (idiots) I say. I wanted to do something more than a romantic comedy," he said.
Shah Rukh Khan, who is always producing one of the biggest budget super hero movies in Bollywood, also said that he was broke at present.
"I have been informed that I am officially broke and RA.One has turned out to be one of the most expensive films. If this film does well, it will go down the history and will be remembered. I am glad I have bought something toIndiawhich has never been seen before... I am very inspired by Krish and Drona," he said.
The movie ‘Ra.One’ is directed by Anubhav Sinha and features Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. It will release on October 26th.
