Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s ambitious project RA.One, slotted for a release this Diwali, is giving the superstar sleepless nights. With only ten days left before its release, the digital intermediation (finishing process of a feature film with a heavy dose of animation in it) is far from the finishing line.
This matter is worrying King Khan extremely and taking away his night’s sleep. As reported by a daily, a source said that Khan on his recent visit to the office where the digital conversion of the film is taking place, lost his cool and was seen giving a piece of his mind to director Anubhav Sinha and his team.
A source informed media, “The entire team of Ra.One is under a lot of pressure to complete the film. There are some minor fixes like colour correction left to be done. The film is set for a worldwide release on October 26, so they have to be really fast. Shah Rukh has been keeping a tab on all the post production activities and was very upset to know about this delay.”
“Shah Rukh went to the post production and was angry with the team for not meeting the deadline. Anubhav Sinha, who was already in the studio had to face SRK’s anger. Later, SRK also motivated them to finish work at the earliest,” added the source.
While distributors at various parts of the world are waiting for the digital prints of the film to reach them, back home, the censor board is waiting to see the final print too. “The film has been given a provisional certificate by the censor board.
The team had to see the film in green background (croma) as the postproduction was not over. They still have to see the final copy as the certificate also needs a mention about the length of the film,” informed the source.
When contacted, Anubhav Sinha said, “Yes, there are a lot of things happening in the postproduction activities. We all are working hard towards it. But everything is fine.”
