London, Oct 26: Shah Rukh Khan sent his fans wild at the U.K. premiere of his new Bollywood blockbuster “RA.One.”
The Hindi film icon received a huge reception - along with his co-stars Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal - when he walked the red carpet at London's 02 Arena on Tuesday (25 Oct. 20110) night.
A 3D science fiction-superhero adventure may seem like quite a change from the usual Bollywood films but Khan insists that it's “not so different.”
“We still have singing and dancing, so it's all there,” he said.
“RA.One” sees Khan take the lead as Shekhar - an embarrassing father who creates an amazing game in a bid to impress his streetwise son. Unfortunately, the plan backfires when the game turns against them.
Indian media are reporting that the special effects-heavy movie is set to be Bollywood's biggest ever release, opening in approximately 5000 screens worldwide.
But Khan says that it's not been made to try to compete with Hollywood blockbusters.
“I think one of the few things we need to go ahead in is the technology and the way we make our films and tell our stories,” he said. “So yeah, it's a step towards that but it would be too big to say that it would compete with an international film.”
“RA.One” opens in the UK, India and worldwide on Wednesday.
