It’s probably the most expensive body suit in Bollywood history. Shah Rukh, who plays a superhero in the Anubhav Sinha directed Ra.One, will be seen in the special body suit which was custom made for him in Los Angeles.
The process involved in creating that suit was something the actor had never experienced before.
He was required to lower himself wearing just the bare essentials into a 12X3 chamber while a very warm liquid latex-like material was gradually released in it till it reached his neck. Then it was allowed to solidify. Once the mould was formed, it was slit from the side and slowly peeled off Shah Rukh. The painful process took one hour. The two sides were later joined together with a concealed zipper.
The mould was then taken for further modifications to form the final suit he’ll be seen wearing in the film.
