Superstar Rajinikanth’s fans are not amused by the trailer of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Ra. One which was released in Chennai a few days back. The loyal fans of the superstar were waiting badly to catch their matinee idol in action in the trailer as Rajini has played a cameo in the Hindi flick apparently at the request of Shah Rukh Khan.
That it was Rajini’s first shooting schedule after he fell ill in April this year made the ‘special appearance’ even more special to Rajini’s fans and movie-goers. Rumours have, however, appeared in the media as to whether Rajini actually starred in the film or whether SRK was using it as a ‘ploy’ to add publicity to his film. ‘Doubting Toms’ ask as to which aircraft Rajini traveled by during his journey to and from Mumbai.
It now turns out that Rajini traveled to and from Mumbai by a special chartered aircraft owned by Kalanidhi Maran, the millionaire baron who runs the Sun Network group. It is also said that the private sortie to and from Mumbai was performed after taking prior permission and approval from the Airports Authority of India in this regard. It is also said that it was Soundarya who directed Shah Rukh and Rajini during the shoot held at Mumbai’s Whistling Wood Studios.
It is also informed that sequences from Rajini’s Enthiran: The Robot where Chitti drives the car are to be included in Ra. One by graphics technique. Rajini plays the saviour of SRK in this cameo which was purposely avoided by SRK from including it in the trailer released in Chennai a few days ago. However, it was reliably learnt that a new trailer including Rajini would be released a few days before Deepavali.
