SRK wants `Ra.One` to surpass recent BO hits
Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan whose dream project `Ra.One` is up for Diwali release, wants his film to surpass all the box office records.
Hinting at the success witnessed by the movies of his friend-turned-foe Salman Khan, SRK said although he is not competing with anyone he would still like for his movie to rise to those heights.
"Every film has its own space. I am happy that in the recent past there are three or four films which have done great business. When it comes to box office, I hope even my film is good enough. We hope we will be able to touch the success of those films," Shah Rukh told reporters.
`Ra.One` is superhero film directed by Anubhav Sinha, starring SRK, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in lead roles.
It is the most expensive film till date and will be released in 3D format worldwide, along with its dubbed versions in Tamil, Telugu and German.
"When I started making this film it was a very expensive proposition but I thank all our partners not for the money that they have put in but for the belief that they have shown towards this film. And to recover the money the film will have to do business that has never been done before. The business exists...the return exists," he said.
The film releases on October 26.
