Mumbai: Gob smacked at the uncanny resemblance of ‘Ra.One’ plot with Ajay Devgn’s ‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’ storyline, Bollywood superhero Shah Rukh Khan is fuming these days.
Buzz has it that SRK has ordered matchless special effects to combat the onslaught of Ajay’s ‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’.
Apparently, the storyline of ‘Ra.One’ is identical to that of Hollywood superhit, where an ordinary dad ventures into surreal world to become a superhero.
Taking to a news daily, a source confirmed the news and said, “I think the working-class dad wanting to be a superhero in his son’s eyes is a format that works universally. We don’t know who though of it first, Ajay or Shah Rukh. But we are only hoping that the audience will forget ‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’ by the time ‘Ra.One’ shows up in theatres.”
However, SRK wants to win this game of one-upmanship and is leaving no stone unturned to make ‘Ra.One’ the best special effects film ever.
“First Shah Rukh had to reckon with similarities to Rajnikanth’s ‘Robot.’ Now there’s the similarities with ‘Toonpur’ which have come from nowhere. He has now asked his director Anubhav Sinha to add more special effects to the project,” added the source.
Even as Shah Rukh and Ajay remained unavailable for comment, sound engineer Resul Pookutty confirms the plotline of ‘Ra.One.’
