The director said that the combination of the project’s star cast and its superhero genre have resulted in the level of hype currently surrounding the Diwali release.
“There is no way we could have controlled the expectations of the film because Shah Rukh was going to release a film of his after a gap of 18 months, then he is also playing a superhero and then the whole of myths that get associated with such films,” Sinha told Bollywood reporter Sunny Malik.
The filmmaker explained that his team have worked hard to meet audience expectations.
“We were also aware that the film will have massive expectations. I agree that these things should make you nervous because people go into the theatre with a lot of expectations,” he said.
“In terms of what you have to deliver, you must do your best to go beyond it. We have tried to do that.”
The London-based film, which was originally going to be shot in Miami, is to have a series of premieres in Dubai, the UK and Canada.
Red Chillies Entertainment’s Ra.One is out on general release on October 26.
