A : Prospects are bright if well made. As an actor Shahrukh has great potential to carry any role. Though his strength will always remain romance genre. This movie weakest link is its too much western theme from title to content, in-fact title is hardly understandable by commons unless given proper one year certified science education [Random access version one]. Recently Vivek Oberoi starrer Prince tanked at box-office having similar settings. Ra-one has only visible strength till date : SRK.
