Shah Rukh Khan's most awaited film of the year, RA.One will pay a tribute to southern superstar Rajinikanth, whose Endhiran, a 2010 Tamil science-fiction film, broke many box office records.
Reports of similarities between Endhiran and RA.One have been surfacing since SRK's film went on the floors but the Bollywood actor claims that his release is different.
"They (Endhiran and RA.One) are different films. I will not like to talk about anyone else's film but Rajni sir is respectable to all of us. Actually, we have a tribute to Rajni sir in our film. We love him," Shah Rukh told reporters here last night.
RA.One, a sci-fi superhero film directed by Anubhav Sinha, stars Shahrukh, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in lead roles with Shahana Goswami, Dilip Tahil and Chinese-American actor Tom Wu in supporting roles.
Endhiran directed by S Shankar featured Rajinikanth in dual roles - as a scientist and an android robot - alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Shah Rukh said his film is indigenous and made in India.
"Everything you have seen is produced here... we are proud of it and have done a great job. We have taken the technology forward and we should be proud of it," he said.
Besides, RA.One will also be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu for the southern audience.
"Dubbing for Tamil and Telugu is going on simultaneously. Also, we intend to dub the film in German and some other languages," he said.
RA.One is all set to release on October 26.
