Ra.One lifts action sequence from Robot?

Post the stupendous success of Rajinikanth's Robot, seems like Shah Rukh Khan is reeling from the copy-cat syndrome. Apparently, the train sequence in SRK's Ra.One is strikingly identical to that in Rajini's Robot.

Post the stupendous success of Rajinikanth's Robot, seems like Shah Rukh Khan is reeling from the copy-cat syndrome. King Khan, who will be seen flexing his muscles and flying in air in his upcoming sci-fi flick Ra.One, is trying to match up to Rajini's antics.



Buzz is that the train sequence in SRK's Ra.One is identical to that in Rajini's Robot, reported Mumbai Mirror. But what is interesting is that the two sequences were shot in two different locations by two separate teams of technicians, so how did they end up looking strikingly similar?



A source told the tabloid, "Shah Rukh has always been a big fan of celebrated chase sequences on top of speeding trains in films, like the one in Sholay. He wanted to mix that sense of thrill with special effects and stunts in Ra.One. How was he to know that director Shankar had the same thing in mind for Rajnikanth?"



SRKSince the entire sequence cannot be re-shot, efforts are on to re-edit the sequence so that not even one frame of the Ra.One sequence resembles that of Robot.



Resul Pookutty, who is busy re-editing the sequence, did not deny the similairity and said, "There are lavish train-top action sequences in both films. We are looking at how to keep it (Ra.One) completely different from the earlier one (Robot)."

Obviously, SRK can't do away with the sequence because it cost him a whopping 3 crore.

Will SRK's high on adrenaline performance better Rajini's antics? time will tell!
