Why are Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor missing from the new ‘RA.One’ poster?
Much to our surprise, the new poster of Shahrukh Khan’s superhero film is only about him; the rest of the cast has gone amiss, despite the fact that Rampal’s bad boy look was recently revealed
There is a lot riding on his latest home-production for the King Khan and it is not just about the gazillion crores that have been pumped into the superhero film. His goodwill in the industry, his ego and, most importantly, the love of his fans worldwide is at stake. That’s the reason we were surprised to see that none of his co-stars in RA.One were featured in the latest poster. It made us wonder if SRK was miffed with Kareena Kapoor for not promoting the film enough, thanks to her personal commitments. Arjun Rampal’s look in the film has also been made public recently, but he doesn’t feature in the poster either. Does Shahrukh want to keep all the limelight to himself, or is there some other logic to this? The film’s release is just two weeks away and ideally both Arjun and Kareena should have been by his side, adding more star value to the promotions, but here he is, going around the world, shouting from rooftops asking people to watch his film, all by himself. SRK also mentioned at a recent promotional event that his co-stars are busier than him and his only engagement at the moment is RA.One. We guess he was taking a dig at Chammak challo Bebo, who is in London dealing with her wax statue at Madame Tussauds, which will be unveiled on October 27, just a day after the release of RA.One. The superhero life is tough…
