Leading tabloids and few media houses had published that the ‘Ra.One’ poster was plagiarized and a lift from ‘Batman’ whose first look as well has a superhero carrying his lady love in his hands, with the superhero sporting a torn outfit as well.
When a media house quizzed SRK on this, pat came his reply, “There were hundreds of poster references I sent to my team while designing the first look. It’s the world’s classic superhero pose, a woman in a man’s hands wearing red and the man’s t-shirt torn. The only poster I don’t have is Batman and they’re accusing me of copying the poster from it! Without even watching the film they are claiming its plagiarized”.
He further added, “For god’s sake all the superhero films are the same. There’s a good guy who bashes up the bad guy and teaches him a lesson. The way you tell the story is important and you can criticize that only after watching the film.”
The King Khan is currently in Baroda as part of the film’s promos, after which he will visit his fans in Jaipur. Shahrukh is leaving no stones unturned when it comes to the marketing of his pet project.
