Ra. One (also known as Ra.1) is an upcoming Hindi science-fiction superhero film directed by Anubhav Sinha and features Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. The film will be produced under Khan’s production company, Red Chillies Entertainment. According to Khan, “Ra.One” means “Random Access – Version 1.0”.
Legendary composer Hans Zimmer (Inception) composed the background score for the film thus making Ra.One, Zimmer’s first Bollywood project. Apart from Zimmer, singer Akon was also roped in to sing a song for the film. For those of you not familiar wiht Bollywood films, Khan’s films such as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Chak De India, Om Shanti Om and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi remain some of Bollywood’s biggest hits, while films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Veer-Zaara, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and My Name Is Khan have been top-grossing Indian productions in the overseas markets, making him one of the most successful actors of India.
The film was scheduled to be released on 3 June 2011, but was later pushed back due to extensive post production work. Below is the teaser for the film premiered during the First Quarter Finals of the 2011 Cricket World Cup. The teaser is only 10 seconds long but very impressive. I also posted a second video, in which the teaser was slowed down, so you can get a better glimpse of the awesome visuals. Enjoy!
