Prague calling for Shah Rukh’s Ra. One

Shah Rukh Khan is all set to make Ra.One bigger than the best. While it is a known fact that he wanted his superhero film to compete with the best in the international arena, he is sticking to his vision by putting it all into real action as well. Recently he finished the background score of the film in none less than Prague, the Mecca of music when it comes to creating a grand sound, to lend huge cinematic experience.

Confirms a source, “Shah Rukh was sure that if he was competing with the likes of Spiderman, Batman and other superhero flicks, he had to get the music right by all means. He discussed this with his director Anubhav Sinha along with composers Vishal & Shekhar and Prague was finalised. The composer duo has been familiar with the music setting there. They in fact upped the ante further and brought together a 200 piece orchestra for the background score of the film.”

Those who have had a sneak peak at the rough cut of the film along with a very international sounding background score are vouching for it already. Though there have been instances of Indian filmmakers heading to Prague for the finalising the musical score, even the technicians out there have been going gaga over the final results of Ra.One and are claiming that this is the best ever that they have created for a long time.

“This isn’t all as, post Prague, the music also travelled to London for additional effects”, the source continues, “It was going to be a very expensive process since Prague by itself was quite costly. Shah Rukh’s only query was whether these effects would really make a difference when heard in theatres. When he was informed that it would indeed be the case and Ra.One would find itself standing firmly on an international map due to an accentuated musical appeal, he didn’t blink an eyelid and gave a go-ahead in five minutes flat.”

Though songs from the film have already made it to the telly starting with ‘Chammak Challo‘, it would be still some time before the background score is heard. However, a glimpse of that would be included into the music CDs of Ra.One which are hitting the stands later this month.

When contacted, Vishal Dadlani (of Vishal-Shekhar duo) confirmed the news, “Yes, we have taken the music to Prague and London. Both Shah Rukh and Anubhav wanted a particular sound and we have managed to bring it alive for Ra.One.”
