Will there be a sequel to RA.One?
RA.One is still playing its game at the box office. It hasn’t yet completed its theatrical run. According to sources, looking at Box Office Collections, actor-producer Shah Rukh Khan is all set to produce 3 more films in the coming year 2012. SRK has even finalized the directors, namely, Rohit Shetty, Anurag Kashyap and Vishal Bhardwaj for the films. Shah Rukh seems to have no plans in casting other actors except himself for the lead role in all the three films. As far as production is concerned, it is still not clear if SRK is going to produce the films entirely or will co-produce them.
Apart from these 3 films, 46-year-old Shah Rukh Khan is keen to produce a friend’s project titled ‘VJ’. The story of this film is about a group of people who are trying hard to make it big in the world. But none of these people have good command over English. And this proves to be a hindrance in accomplishing their goal. This film has a social message and is also very humorous. The shooting for the film will start as soon as the script is drafted completely.
Everyone is aware about how Shah Rukh Khan is a family person and knows how to manage time between his work and family. After the release of RA.One, he now wants a month’s break to spend some time with his wife, Gauri and kids at home. This is not all; he will even be giving Math and History lessons to son Aryan and daughter Suhana.
The Badshah of Bollywood wants to grow his production company. This is the reason he has planned 3 projects in 365 days. Shah Rukh, along with his directors, is concentrating on the scripts of his upcoming films. Lot of equipment and money is involved in making a good film. And therefore, he wishes to do better work than his previous productions.
Rumors have it that due to insufficient dates from actor-producer Shah Rukh Khan, Vishal Bhardwaj was about to sign RK aka Ranbir Kapoor in an upcoming film that is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s ‘2 states’. But, according to sources, Shah Rukh had already walked out of that project and is working with Vishal Bhardwaj on a completely different film. Vishal even called Shah Rukh a month before for film’s narration.
But, here the question that arises is, if RA.One’s sequel exists on Shah Rukh’s list or not? RA.One, although not a huge hit, has indeed helped the producers become billionaires. Trade figure states that RA.One is Shah Rukh’s first film to cross Rs.100cr. at box office. The actor is happy that the film has recovered its cost and also earned profits. Mushtaq Sheikh claimed that the sequel to RA.One is on the cards but King Khan has turned down the claim stating that as of now RA.One’s sequel is not happening. The actor is happy with the collections and as of now, he has no plans for RA.One Part 2. But yes, if he gets a unique story, then he will indeed think about it.
