Shah Rukh Khan & Mukesh Ambani blown away by X-Men


MUMBAI: X-Men: First Class, the fifth of the X-Men Series, is all set to release this weekend.

Not only is the film gaining an overwhelming response from across the world; but some Indian biggies are also raving about the film.

Shah Rukh Khan, who has already gone on record to say that he was inspired to make Ra.One after watching X-Men films, recently had an exclusive screening of X-Men: First Class at Mannat. He said, "I thought it was a fantastic movie – the best of the series. It makes you want to revisit the other X-Men movies all over again. I am hoping Ra.One is a step for Hindi cinema in this direction."

Reliance Industries head honcho Mukesh Ambani too, is all praises for the film, "X-Men: First Class is highly entertaining… one of the finest superhero films I’ve seen. It is the best entertainer since the IPL!!"

Ashutosh Gowarikar, who saw the movie in Hindi at a special screening, quips, "I find the X-Men series fascinating. They have a mystical quality about them. All the mutant characters are stunning and especially the characters of Charles and Magneto! So when X-Men: First Class came out, I was very keen to see the back story of how Charles and Magneto were friends at first and what led them to become enemies. I saw the Hindi dubbed versiion because my good friend Saahil Chaddha is the voice of Charles. He has done a superb rendition and given Charles the much required emotional connect, which is a difficult thing to do. All the voiceovers are superbly done. It was a pleasure to see the X Men: First Class in Hindi."

Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh says, "Indian audiences have already picked up the positive reviews from across the world and the excitement around the film is soaring high. We are sure that movie buffs will thoroughly enjoy this summer entertainer."

The movie stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, and January Jones and will be released across India in English, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu languages.
