'Ra.One' music is a unique super creation very well matching the blockbuster grand design of the film. Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani are the maestros helming the project. But they could not have achieved what they have done without the grand visualization and dedication of Shah Rukh Khan.
While Vishal-Shekhar duo originated the music creation, Shah Rukh inspired them and managed the international collaborations to give the music the pioneering kind of Indian-Universal-Classical-Modern touch. It will be remembered as a classical example of fusion music.
