Shahrukh dedicates RaOne music to Yash Johar
Mumbai: Superstar Shahrukh Khan launched the music of his most ambitious project `Ra.One` here last night, dedicating it to late filmmaker Yash Johar and friend Bobby Chawla, brother of actress Juhi Chawla.
Bobby, is the CEO of Shahrukh Khan`s company Red Chillies Entertainment, and has been in coma since last year.
"I want to dedicate this album to Yash Joharji and Bobby.
When we started our company `Red Chillies Entertainment` the one who helped me start it was Bobby and the one who gave me so much love, was Yash Joharji. So this is for them," Shahrukh told reporters here last night.
The evening started with performances on various dance numbers from `Ra.One` like `Chamak Chalo`, `Dildaara` and others, by Shahrukh, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal and music-composers Vishal-Shekhar. The music launch event will be televised on Star network on September 18.
Filmmaker Karan Johar launched the music along with the cast of the film.
"I am always overwhelmed when Shahrukh talks about my father. It is true that one person that my father loved and adored in this industry is Shahrukh. In his last days, my father had some great memories with Shahrukh. Wherever he is in this universe, he will bless Shahrukh and `Ra.One` with love and success," Karan said.
"I believe `Ra.One` is the proudest Indian film ever made and there isn`t a film like `Ra.One` on the celluloid," he said.
"This is one of our best albums ever. It is built for the biggest film of all time. Everything has been grand in the film and so is the music and the collaboration of international personalities like Akon, Prague Philharmonic Orchestra," Vishal-Shekhar said.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, `Ra.one` is slated for a release this Diwali.
