appearances by Rajinikanth playing the Enthiran character Chitti Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra the latter two being characters in a dream sequence Additional minor roles were played by Dalip Tahil and Satish Shah and an important voiceover was provided by Amitabh Bachchan Khan performed both as Shekhar and G One The titular character Ra One was enacted by three actors – Rampal Wu and Kapoor signifying the characters shapeshifting ability 5 Khan was the first actor to be cast in the film 6 Three actors had initially been considered for the lead female role Kapoor was ultimately chosen because she insisted on playing the part 7 Rampal accepted the role of Ra One after Sinha expressed a strong desire to cast him in the film 8 Wu was contracted to the film in July 20109 and Goswami was cast one month later 10 Bachchan agreed to be a part of the film after being requested by Khan and Sinha 11 Several cast members prepared extensively for their roles Rampal and Kapoor followed special diets to lose weight1213 and Verma learnt capoeira 14 Khan and Verma performed their own stunts1415 and Kapoor subsequently did so as well despite initial reluctance 16 However the cast did encounter problems during production Khan faced difficulties with his superhero suit and prosthetic makeup1718 and injured his left knee 19 The decision to cast Rampal was met with scepticism due to questionable acting abilities a statement Sinha criticised 20 In addition Rampal encountered back problems which were treated by the time production began8 prompting speculation of a possible replacement by Vivek Oberoi 21Jackie Chan had initially been approached for the role of Akashi22 but he declined the offer Rajnikanth suffered from health problems which caused a delay in the filming of his cameo appearance 23 Dutt faced a scheduling conflict with Agneepath 2012 which was later resolved 24 Productionedit Developmentedit Ra One is the modern new age technology version of our mythological Raavan who was a mixture of ten different evil characters I am essaying the role of G One or better say Jeevan a superhero who saves the mankind from Ra Ones torment Through this film I want to prove that Indian superheroes can also be as cool as the international ones 25 Shahrukh Khan on Ra One According to director Anubhav Sinha the idea of Ra One originated when he saw an advertisement on television which showed children remotely controlling a human He was attracted to the concept and wrote a script based on it 620 Sinha then approached Khan who liked the story and decided to produce the film under his production company Red Chillies Entertainment 6 Sinha was apprehensive of retaining Khans support after the formers previous film Cash 2007 became a commercial failure but Khan reportedly remained unchanged 6 Shahrukh Khan felt that the film possessed significant commercial potential26 in addition to being a fulfilment of his childhood dream to be a superhero and to fly 27 He stated that he wanted to make a film that gives me the right to deserve the iconic status that Ive got for 20 years 28 He also said that he wanted to make a film dedicated to fatherson relationships which were in his opinion neglected in Bollywood 29 Khans idea was to make a simple family drama which expanded into an action film 30 He declined to make the film in English to increase its appeal for Western audiences feeling that cracking Hollywood on their terms was unnecessary 15 Both Khan and Sinha credited their children for providing encouragement and regularly approving the films execution 6 Red Chillies Entertainment continued to work on other projects before finalising the production aspects of Ra One 31 After providing the visual effects for My Name Is Khan 2010 the studio focused solely on Ra One and did not take up any other films 32 Khan initially approached a number of directors to helm the film including Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar but they declined33 eventually Sinha was made the films director To prepare the films premises and characterisation Sinha spent several months viewing video clips digital art portals and comic books 26 Sinha and Khan also watched around 200 superhero films from all over the world 34 The storyboards were designed by Atul Chouthmal who was contracted after he met Khan at Yash Raj Studios While the former began work on the storyboards the producers hired a storyboard artist from Hollywood Chouthmal revealed that Khan and the other artist differed on their visions of the film and so he was brought back 35 Before filming Khan reportedly took tips from actor Kamal Hassan regarding the production of largescale films having been impressed by Hassans Dasavathaaram 2008 36 I have always felt this – and even Alfred Hitchcock said that in a movie which has a larger than life hero the villains role should be very strong So I also felt that if the villain looks good the superhero will also look good 37 Shahrukh Khan on the title of the film The title of the film received significant media attention due to it being the name of the antagonist rather than the protagonist 38 The move was considered innovative39 and noted as a sign of the rising importance of the villain in Bollywood 40 According to Sinha the title had not been planned as such and was ultimately chosen because Ra One sounded cooler than G One 41 Khan was advised to name the film after his own character he declined to do so citing the interdependence between good and evil 42 He also called Alfred Hitchcock as his inspiration and pointed out that the antagonists in films like Sholay Mr India and Sadak were better remembered than the protagonists 3738 Principal photographyedit The crew of Ra One featured both Indian and overseas personnel Nicola Pecorini served as the director of photography with V Manikandan providing assistance 26 Andy Gill and Spiro Razatos were hired as the stunt supervisors and Nino Pansini was hired as the stunt cinematographer Sabu Cyril and Marcus Wookey were responsible for the production design 4344 The films producer was Bobby Chawla but Gauri Khan later stepped in after the former suffered a brain haemorrhage 45 Filming took place at a number of studios notably Filmistan Studios Film City and Yash Raj Studios in India and the Black Hangar Studios in the UK 46 Principal photography was initially set to begin in Miami but the idea was abandoned due to budget constraints 47 The first phase of filming began in Goa on 21 March 201048 and continued until May 49 The second and third phases took place in London with the entire cast beginning in July 201050 and ending in August 51 The next phase was split into two schedules the first schedule commenced at Filmistan Studios in the first week of September 201051 while the second schedule began in December 2010 and took place over a sevenday period 52 The remaining portions were filmed in July 2011 at Film City 53 A cameo appearance and a music video were filmed in the weeks leading up to the release the former at the Whistling Woods Studios in Mumbai 5455 Ra One featured three major action sequences which were filmed in sets and real locations across Mumbai and London The cinematography borrowed ideas from video games such as rapid transitions between firstperson and thirdperson perspectives 44 Procedures such as bullet time were also incorporated into the film 56 The production design was closely associated with the lighting and cinematography to facilitate smooth filming 44 However filming faced a number of difficulties including increasing costs delays and safety constraints 41 In addition differences between Khan and Sinha caused tensions on the sets 45 Postproductionedit As with the filming crew the postproduction crew of the film included both Indian and overseas personnel 57 Prime Focus carried out the films 3D conversion58 with Londonbased colorist Richard Fearon performing the color grading 59 Red Chillies VFX partnered with a number of visual effects studios around the world20 and undertook the incorporation of the visual effects under the supervision of Jeffrey Kleiser 60Nvidia provided the information technology–based software utilised for the effects61 while Edwark Quirk supervised over the computergenerated imagery used in the film 58Resul Pookutty was responsible for the films sound design 26 Kleiser right and Shahrukh Khan on the sets of Ra One The idea for converting the film to 3D was put forth during filming and was implemented in July 2011 due to a revived interest in 3D films 6 The process required 2600 artists to convert 4400 shots of the film 59 The sound design involved bridging the real and the virtual world62 and the required sound enhancements were achieved by using the Dolby Surround 7 1 system 26 Incorporating the visual effects began in April 201063 and was preceded by extensive research 32 1200 artists worked for 2½ years to complete the visual effects work 64 A number of complex procedures were executed including cubical transformations and the design of the faceless form of Ra One 3256 Despite precautions20 the postproduction faced significant delays owing to the digital intermediation65 increased workload due to the 3D and dubbed versions of the film66 and delays in the completion of the visual effects 67 The postproduction also faced budget constraints60 and witnessed an overuse of CGI according to the cinematographer 44 The delays left only two days for printing the film and sending it to theatres generating significant anxiety over a possible delay in the release 67 Khan subsequently kept strict tabs on the progress of work65 and postponed his knee surgery to complete the film on time 68 Costumesedit G Ones costume prior to the addition of visual effects The body suits worn by Khan and Rampal were designed by Robert Kurtzman and Tim Flattery and made by a team of specialists based in Los Angeles 69 Sinha spent around three months conceptualising the costumes watching various superhero films to design a costume not created already He then wrote a 23page document with his sketches and details of what he wanted and gave it to the designers to work upon 6 To create the suit Khan was required to enter a small chamber where a warm latexlike liquid was released up to his neck and allowed to solidify forming the mould which was then peeled off his body The suit was joined by a concealed zipper and subsequently modified 70 Computergenerated embellishments such as light beams and electricity were added to the suits after Khan expressed dissatisfaction with the initial rushes of the film 71 A total of 21 costumes were made for the film with each suit reportedly costing ₹10 million US160000 72 Khans suit was made of reinforced latex coloured steelblue and fitted with microcomputer circuitry 70 Rampals suit was made of threeinch thick solid rubber and was red in color Both actors were required to wear additional suits inside their body suits to prevent skin contact 12 Wearing the suits created a number of difficulties for the actors It took 20 minutes to put on the suits and 40 minutes to remove them 12 In addition the nonporous nature of the suits created intense heat inside causing excessive perspiration despite the presence of special air conditioning ducts 17 Khan later felt that the suits conception had been a mistake since filming occurred during the day digital adjustments to the suits brought all the efforts to naught 28 Manish Malhotra designed the look and the costume of Kareena Kapoor for the song Chammak Challo which received widespread media coverage 73 Kapoor wore a red sari draped in the style of a dhoti 74 Since the release of the song the costume was termed a fashion rage75 becoming popular in India and some overseas countries Fashion experts applauded the costume and Kapoors ability to carry it off stunningly though certain experts dismissed the naming of the sari color 73 Main article Ra One soundtrack The soundtrack of Ra One was composed by VishalShekhar with the lyrics being written by Atahar Panchi Vishal Dadlani and Kumaar 76A R Rahman provided the background score for a single sequence 77 Sinha announced that R&B singer Akon and the Prague Philharmonic

children to emulate the stunts The police and the Indian Railways security force had made similar objections to the trainbased stunts in the film claiming that youngsters would blindly imitate them

for a sequel though the former noted that it would be presumptuous to start the sequel before the first films release 181 Khan later refuted the speculations saying that a sequel was unlikely due to his other commitments 182 After Ra One won a National Award an overjoyed Khan said that the films world could be further explored He stated that the sequel if made would be titled G One and not Ra Two and that he would make it faster bigger and better than Ra One 183 Khan was reported to be looking for a script without a fixed release date 184 In April 2012 Mushtaq Sheikh said that the preproduction of the sequel had begun 183 A number of reports stated that Kareena Kapoor would not be a part of the sequel 185 Despite Khans enthusiasm for the idea of a sequel the film industry expressed mixed opinions regarding it Filmmaker Rajkumar Gupta commented It would be challenging to take forward a story that has not worked earlier Producer Ramesh Taurani responded negatively to the idea saying It is important for the film to be appreciated so that a sequel can be made Trade analyst Atul Mohan called the sequel a bad idea Conversely others were supportive of the sequel Producer Goldie Behl brushed aside arguments about the success of the first film saying If the people think that they can earn some more then it doesnt matter how big or small the hit was Director Kunal Kohli also reacted positively saying Certain ideas naturally lend themselves to sequels So why not use that investment of your time and effort to make a sequel that will take the brand further180
