Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, a big fan of Hugh Jackman, Friday said the Australian star`s ‘X-Men’ series inspired him to make sci-fi superhero movie ‘Ra.One’.
“I wanted to do something different for the kids, so I watched all the `X-Men` movies, cartoons, read comics and honestly the `X-Men` series inspired me to do `Ra.One`,” Shah Rukh said at the closing session of the 12th FICCI-Frames where he shared the stage with Jackman.
The two stars had an engrossing session on the mutual influence of the two film industries – Hollywood and Bollywood, and the prospect of studio culture.
Asked about his Hollywood aspirations, Shah Rukh said: “I truly believe that I should do what I want to do… make that one film the world would ever remember me for. That`s my dream. We have lovely stories here. I have been offered quite a few films by Hollywood filmmakers and would surely do one if Hugh ask me to do.” (Laughs).
The session was moderated by producer-director Karan Johar.
