With the release of Ra.One coming closer Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been on a promotion spree all month. Earlier this week Shah Rukh Khan travelled all the way to Chennai for the Ra.One’s music launch in Tamil. The event was graced by South Superstar Rajinikanth and his daughter Soundarya Ranjinikanth Ashwin. Other guests present at Satyam theatres were director Mani Ratnam, wife Suhasini and Abirami Ramanathan. SRK tweeted saying, “In Chennai…overwhelmed by the lov shown by mani rathnam, santosh sevan. Soundarya &Rajini sir. Launch of Ra.one in tamil, grateful to all”. Arjun Rampal also tweeted saying, “So much been happening,working round the clock,today Rajni sir unveiled the first look of Ra 1 the character super excited.in chennai.”
Winners of a contest held by the organizers also got to attend this star-studded affair and got to witness SRK dance to the tunes of the worldwide hit ‘Chammak Challo’. SRK basically MC’d the whole event and while doing so also thanked Rajinikanth for a cameo appearance in the movie. SRK adds, “I am one of the fortunate few who has had the good fortune of working with Kamal Haasan in Hey Ram and now Rajini in RA.One. Both of them are my childhood heroes. My mother is from Hyderabad and even as a young boy, I remember her telling me about these two great actors. I am also impressed with the work of Mammooty and Mohanlal. These are actors I deeply admire. I just wish I can be as humble as Rajini sir some day. He’s a fantastic human being. He has touched my life in more ways than one.”
Ra.One opens in theaters this Diwali.
