Jackman’s ‘X-Men’ series inspired me to make ‘Ra.One’: SRK

Mumbai, March 25 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, a big fan of Hugh Jackman, Friday 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.
