SRK goes Hollywood tooMarch 20th, 2009 - 1:58 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
After his recent trip to the Golden Globes and Slumdog’s success, SRK is trying to go global too! The recent chain of events have been quite an inspiration for many and that includes SRK.
King Khan has got Hollywood writer David Benullo for his next production, Ra.1, to be directed by Anubhav Sinha. Ra.1 is an SFX film and is expected to release early next year.
Benullo has written the screenplay for films like “Around the World in 80 Days’ and the script for “Hallowed Ground’, “Cupid and Shadow Man’, which won the International Fantasy Film Award in 2006.
An source said, “Since Ra.1 is not a run-of-the-mill film, it requires a unique treatment. It’s has loads of special effects, which is why it will be made differently from the usual commercial Hindi films. SRK wanted a writer who would do justice to the film. Which is why he got David Benullo to work on the script.”
The source added, “The writer has already started work on the film when he was he was in India recently. He was working from the Red Chillies office. He had several discussions with SRK when he was recuperating after his shoulder surgery.”
Director Anubhav Sinha said, “Yes, David Benullo is one of the writers working on the script. It’s too early to tell you anything more since I can’t talk about the film.” -Sampurn Media
