Shah Rukh and Anubhav aren’t yet decided on 3D version for Ra. One

Hold on to your horses before you start jumping with joy around the prospects of watching Ra.One in 3D. Though Shah Rukh Khan has hinted that there would be some portions of the film in 3D, the fact is that a final decision on this is yet to be taken. The makers are currently testing the waters and trying to figure out whether it would indeed be feasible to bring the superhero multi crore action flick in 3D, especially since it was originally shot in 2D.

Informs a well placed source from the film's technical team, "A few important scenes from Ra.One have been handed over to a couple of major studios who are currently working on applying 3D to these. This is currently in testing phase as all the 2D shots would be converted into 3D, unlike the recent hit Haunted which was originally shot in 3D."

Both Shah Rukh Khan as well as the film's director Anubhav Sinha are pretty excited though about the prospects of seeing their vision translate into 3D. Though this would further increase the film's budget, they are not deterred. However before taking the final call they want to be dead sure that the effects are as per their expectations.

"More than half a decade has gone into bringing Ra.One from the ideation to the shape of a final product. Of course when the film was being designed, 3D wasn't much in vogue but now there are studios, theatre owners as well as audience applying pressure on the team of Ra.One to bring the film in 3D", continues the source, "Shah Rukh as well as Anubhav aren't getting carried away though and would agree to the experiment only if the test results are on par or above their expectations. Otherwise they are pretty content with what they have managed to achieve with the original 2D version."

On contacted, Anubhav confirms the news about some of the shots from the film being shared with the VFX studios for them to do their tests. He asserts though that this is one of the many things that are currently occupying everyone involved with Ra.One.

He says, "Decision on 3D is yet to be taken but we are having close look at our timelines. If things happen early enough then fine otherwise we are not budging from our Diwali release timeline. Whether it is Shah Rukh, the film's editor, composers, VFX guys or I, none of us are sleeping more than five hours a day. There is no mind space to make any decision yet."
