Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan is one tough actor, who doesn’t reel in under pressure. The actor, who is often quoting controversy, is now single handedly managing his business and that too with élan and thoroughness.

Even though the superstar is grief stricken over the illness of his close associate and Red Chillies CEO Bobby Chawla (Juhi Chawla’s brother) who suffered a brain hemorrhage, SRK is taking care of every little thing in his production house.

Ever since Bobby Chawla’s hospitalization, the entire shooting schedule of Ra.One had been a complete mess. After SRK was informed about the problems faced by his production team, he decided to take matters in his own hands.

Confirming the news, a source said, “A few of Bobby Chawla’s duties have been taken up by Ra.One director Anubhav Sinha too, but it is Shah Rukh who is now holding the reins of Ra.One”.

So what exactly has Shah Rukh undertaken? “SRK is mainly taking care of four jobs: calling up every actor of Ra.One and coordinating their dates, discussing their remuneration, making sure that they get their payments on time and talking to technicians (including those coming from abroad) for every single production detail, including the special effects involved in the film,” adds the source.

“Come to think of it, SRK is holding the whole film together. There is production related work, which SRK would have never done otherwise. With Bobby taking care of everything at Red Chillies for all these years, all SRK had to concentrate on was acting. He completely relies on Bobby and is definitely missing him very much. But SRK has decided that he will not give anybody involved with the film a chance to complain about anything,” says the source.
