For Shah Rukh, filmmaking is like love

Mumbai: As the shooting for his science-fiction superhero film `Ra One` has got over, superstar Shah Rukh Khan now feels "a sense of emptiness".

"Ra One shoot finally over. We start films so that we complete them fast…but when they finish there is a sense of emptiness as if a difficult but passionate relationship has come to an end," Shah Rukh said on micro-blogging site twitter.

`Ra One` has been directed by Anubhav Sinha and produced under the banner of Khan`s Red Chillies Entertainment.

"Film making is like love…like falling from a building…but not feeling the impact or the hurt till you reach the end. Here`s to new beginnings…cos endings are just beginnings backwards," Shahrukh said.

Besides King Khan, the film features Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. Kareena plays the female lead alongside Shah Rukh, while Arjun will be seen as the villain.

The film was first scheduled to release on June 3 but was pushed forward due to extensive post production work and is now set to hit cinema houses on October 26 this year.
