Superstar Rajini as Chitti in Ra.One

Seven months ago, Shah Rukh Khan asked the writers of his forthcoming film, RA.One to include a scene for Rajinikanth.

Unfortunately, it was around then that the Southern star fell ill. “I shot it with a duplicate thinking maybe I’ll keep it, maybe not. Then recently, I got the courage to contact him because I met his doctor in London, who told me he’s better. I’m a big fan, so I called him and said, ‘I’d really like you to do a part.’

He was very sweet and he said, ‘I’m still unwell for a month and want to rest’,” says Khan.

Four days ago, Khan received a call from Rajni’s daughter, with good news. “We’ve sent her the shot because we’re running short of time. They have a method where they shoot his face, as he may not be able to do the physical part of the sequence, but we’re still hoping. We might have Chitti in the film. If that happens, it’ll be really cool. RA.One will be complete if Rajni sir is part of it as Chitti,” says the excited actor, whose film releases on October 26.
