Rajinikanth Guest Role in SRK's Ra One

In his first tryst with the camera after the bout of illness, Rajinikanth will do a guest appearance for Shah Rukh Khan in RA.One.

This will be a double whammy for millions of Rajini fans around the world, who had spent sleepless nights praying for their idol, and for SRK fans, who are waiting to see the romantic star in a never-before avatar. SRK has been maintaining that the film pays a tribute to the superstar's Robot.

Rajini will shoot in Hyderabad for a sequence that has been set in his honour, said sources close to the crew. Besides the first-ever Rajni-Shah Rukh pairing, the cameo will also mark the iconic star's return to form.

However, his family maintained that full-fledged shooting will commence only from November. "Rajini has recovered. He will resume full fledged shooting from November. Till then he will be on rest," the superstar's elder brother Satyanarayana Rao Gaekwad told this newspaper.

Sources close to the unit revealed that Rajini will shoot for the special sequence on October 4, at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. "In the sequence he will deliver his super-hit dialogue from the film Bhasha," added the source.

It is learnt that the scene has been dedicated to him and doffs a hat to his stardom and stature as an actor. Elaborating on the scene, a source said, SRK who is seen fighting a gang of villains faces another threat from a gang armed with deadly weapons.

At this critical point, Rajini makes an entry, 'Rajni Style' in a car. The super powered vehicle immediately sucks up all the weapons from the villains prompting SRK to ask Kareena, who that man in the car was. That's when Rajinikanth steps out and delivers his super- hit dialogue.

The sequence was originally meant to feature a Rajini lookalike. But SRK managed to convince the superstar to do the honours. Incidentally, RA.One will be released in Tamil and Telugu as well.

Did you know?
In July 2007, Shah Rukh Khan was signed on to play the male lead of Robot as well as be the producer for the project. In October, the same year, the deal was called off.

Rajinikanth is not the only one playing a cameo in RA.One. Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra have also made guest appearances in the film.

Sanjay Dutt sports a beefed up tattooed look in the superhero flick.

Both Dutt and Chopra play G.One's (SRK's character in the film) enemies. They are unleashed upon G.One by his main enemy RA.One (played by Arjun Rampal).
