Cinema fans, better be prepared, as after the lull, there’s a big budget storm waiting ahead. Shah Rukh Khan who’s set to release his ambitious mega-budget offering RA.One in Diwali is leaving no stone unturned to make it popular among the audience already. The actor who was at Ambience Mall, Gurgaon on Wednesday to launch the theatrical trailer of the film is on an All-India tour to promote and popularize his characters 'RA.One' and 'G.One'.
“You must be wondering why I’m promoting the film now, when its release is still 4-5 months away. Our idea is to familiarize the audience with the characters of the film, so that when the film actually hits the theatres, they know what they are all about.”
SRK, who should have ideally titled the film on his character 'G.One' chose to name it RA.One because he was really enamoured with the characters of Gabbar Singh, Mogambo and Joker who were remembered more than the main hero.

When asked if Arjun Rampal is playing RA.One, SRK refused to spill the beans. “You’ll know soon when the second poster of the film will come out.”
But SRK is gaga about Arjun Rampal’s performance rating it “fabulous”.
The actor who is contemplating on turning portions of the movie in 3D is not sure if it could happen.
“We are trying to turn some portions in 3D, but I am not sure if it can actually happen. There are various reservations to it. This decision is yet to be finalized.”
SRK also denied that RA.One is a sci-fi film and terms it as a family entertainer. “It’s not a sci-fi film, we are only using VFX technology for the first time in India. But it’s a complete family film which has a father, a mother and a son. “
When asked about Kareena’s role, SRK could not compliment her enough. “She’s the most beautiful mom ever. I mean she’ll be a beautiful mom in real life as well, but in the film she looks very pretty.”
While SRK and Salman still can’t see eye to eye, the actor remarked he liked two songs of Ready and wish the team of the movie all the best.
The megastar was in Chandigarh when he heard about yesteryear’s actor Raj Kiran’s condition. “I heard about Raj Kiran while I was in Chandigarh. I was shocked. Once I reach Mumbai, we will do everything possible to help him. I hope he gets cured of his ailment soon.”
