Although the rumours were doing rounds for some weeks but the scenario got cleared only after an Arjun Rampal interview where he smilingly confessed that he is playing RA.One.
Now, when Arjun is once again all set to sizzle the screen in 'RA.One', even Shah Rukh Khan will have to work extra hard to look as handsome as Arjun.
Since three-four years, Arjun Rampal has evolved as an actor who can portray villainous characters with relative ease.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in pivotal characters.
Shah Rukh's RA.One will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telgu, and may be in German too.
Shah Rukh Khan who's busy promoting his forthcoming film RA.One these days will be seen playing a gaming software engineer in the film.
It's just the irony that Arjun Rampal was once called as another copy of Shah Rukh Khan.
Velayutham is said to have been inspired by the Nagarjuna starrer in Telugu called 'Azad.'
Vijay meanwhile made a couple of promotional appearances in Madurai and Bangalore and distributed over 100 cows to poor families in Coimbatore.
Despite the hardest efforts to keep a secret, it is revealed that Arjun Rampal is going to play the character RA.One in the film 'RA.One'.
And there comes RA.One, Random Access 1 that mythologically refers to the Ravan from Ramayan.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan launched the digital avatar of G.One, a character that he plays in his much-awaited film 'Ra.One'.
Surya as Bodhidharma, Arjun Rampal as RA.One, Shah Rukh Khan as G.One and Vijay as Velayudham will battle for the top slot this Diwali.
Arguably the most bankable star in Tamil cinema now, Suriya's fan following seems to be steadily rising.
Three of the most anticipated films of this year, Suriya's Ezhaam Arivu and Vijay's Velayutham not to mention the film that will have a cameo by Rajinikanth himself RA One, are all set for a Diwali release.
With top actors like Ajith and Vijay limiting themselves to a film or maximum two a year, stars like Suriya stand to gain.
The season's most awaited film without doubt has to be Ezhaam arivu, irrespective of how Suriya's earlier film has fared or what he'll be doing next.
He is a popular ad face and his choice of performance-oriented roles in between action entertainers has cemented his image as both an actor and a star.
In terms of star value alone, Vijay's Velayutham should have been on top of the list, especially considering the fact that the star's yet to give us a substantial hit to reckon with since 'Pokkiri' in 2007.
What followed Pokkiri were 5 duds in a row; Azhagiya Thamizh Magan, Kuruvi, Villu, Vettaikkaran and Sura. Distributors and theatre owners did not take too kindly to Vijay films post the trauma, but the actor%u2019s last film 'Kaavalan,' a remake of the Malayalam film 'Bodyguard,' came as a face-saver.
