Bangalore. In a surprising turn of events, cricketer Rahul Dravid has been offered a cameo in SRK’s upcoming movie Ra.One, which is being aggressively marketed across the country. Shah Rukh Khan has already roped in superstars Rajinikanth and Amitabh Bachchan for the movie and had plans to rope in master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, but chain of events led to Rahul Dravid being offered the role.

“Tendulkar refused the role citing the term ‘one’ being in the movie title,” a close aide of SRK revealed, “He is still waiting for that ‘one’ century to complete his century of centuries, and didn’t want to jinx anything by taking up any other ‘one’ before he got that ‘one’.”

Although SRK’s team initially thought of roping in cricketers like Dhoni or Bhajji, who have proved their acting skills in advertisements, they decided to ask Rahul Dravid as it would complete SRK’s marketing plan for the South Indian states.

“Already there’s some hype for the movie in the Tamil and Telugu sectors. Now taking Dravid for another cameo will spread Ra.One’s market in Kannada too,” Ra.One’s producer Gauri Khan said.

With just a few days to go before the movie’s release date, Dravid has been asked to get into the IPL mode for his role. The stylish batsman has been offered the role of Chinni robot, which is going to fight against Chitti – The Rajini robot.

However, experts have warned that a fight between Kannada and Tamil heroes could reignite the Kaveri River water dispute – something that has excited SRK, for a political controversy had helped market his last movie “My Name Is Khan”.

But fans seem to be in no mood to create any controversy. “An action sequence that too just before the release? I am very happy that Jammy is finally being acknowledged for his slog overs batting instinct,” a fan of Dravid reacted when asked for comments.

“Hope the robo fight will turn out to be a mind blowing sequence. I’m excited to see if Rajini’s punch dialogues can drill through The Wall,” Ballebasha a fan of both Dravid and Rajini said. He is even ready to put Rs. 10,000 for the ticket.

“That’s crap; I’m not interested in creating any controversy. ‘Rahul’ has been my favorite screen name and that’s why I chose Dravid,” SRK said. When asked if he could bid for Dravid for the next edition of IPL, SRK said, “I won’t mind doing that once I start working on Ra.Two. In fact I’m looking to rope in Dada (Sourav Ganguly) too.”

Rahul Dravid is happy but a little nervous at the development. Only a few days back he had said that he was a very bad actor. “I meant that. I’m bad at acting; but let’s see how this goes,” Dravid told Faking News.

When contacted for his comments, Ganguly said, “I am a very bad politician.”

  6. i had read that article on Gunda sometime back on FN, even read about it on wiki…found the story confusing…now maybe i’ll watch it! i just hope i won’t kill myself after watching it…

    • @parul
      glad to c ur enthusiasm and risk taking they pain no gain
      u may also want to google out ” gunda + economic times” to make better informed decision
      btw three responses are observed after ppl watch the epic
      1. they want to kill themselves
      2 they want to kill the one who suggested the movie( i guess that wud be me)
      3. but then there are who achieve self realisation after watching it n show immense gratitude for being there lives now have a deeper purpose n meaning…
      i hope i made my point cant be more explicit on public forum…
      hail prabhuji
