'X-Men' inspired me to make 'Ra.One': SRK
The star talks about his fascination with Hugh Jackman's sci-fi film
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, a big fan of Hugh Jackman, yesterday said the Australian star's X-Men series inspired him to make sci-fi superhero movie Ra.One.
"I wanted to do something different for the kids, so I watched all the X-Men movies, cartoons, read comics and honestly the X-Men series inspired me to do Ra.One," Shah Rukh said at the closing session of the 12th FICCI-Frames where he shared the stage with Jackman.
The two stars had an engrossing session on the mutual influence of the two film industries - Hollywood and Bollywood, and the prospect of studio culture.
Asked about his Hollywood aspirations, Shah Rukh said, "I truly believe that I should do what I want to do... make that one film the world would ever remember me for. That's my dream. We have lovely stories here. I have been offered quite a few films by Hollywood filmmakers and would surely do one if Hugh ask me to do." (Laughs).
The session was moderated by producer-director Karan Johar.
