Current Bollywood News: Rs. 1 crore superhero suit for SRK!

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan had to enter a chamber filled with hot molten latex to make his superhero suit for Ra.One. The cost? A cool Rs 1 crore

It’s probably the most expensive body suit in Bollywood history, but Shah Rukh Khan will remember it for entirely different reasons.

Shah Rukh, who plays a superhero in the Anubhav Sinha directed Ra.One, will be seen in the special body suit which was custom made for him in Los Angeles. The process involved in creating that suit was something the actor had never experienced before.

He was required to lower himself wearing just the bare essentials into a 12X3 chamber while a very warm liquid latex-like material was gradually released in it till it reached his neck. Then it was allowed to solidify. Once the mould was formed, it was slit from the side and slowly peeled off Shah Rukh. The whole painful process took one hour. The two sides were later joined together with a concealed zipper.

The mould was then taken for further modifications to form the final suit he’ll be seen wearing in the film.

“The suit is steel blue in colour and made of a special material like reinforced latex, meant to provide both flexibility and protection. It acts as a tough exoskeleton to minimise external injury while being flexible enough not to hamper body movement while performing stunts. But it didn’t come cheap - the suit, fitted with micro-computer circuitry required for the film, cost nearly Rs 1 crore,” says a source.
