The magnum opus PAZHASSI RAJA is already the talk of the town with association of great names like Mammootty, Sarath Kumar, Gyanpeeth award winner M T Vasudevan Nair, T Hariharan, music maestro Ilayaraja and the Oscar winner Resul Pookkuty. But now the list has just grown bigger and better with the ultimate name of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan joining the bandwagon.

King Khan has dubbed the prologue for the Hindi version of the movie, which is releasing simultaneously in five languages including Hindi and English.

Interestingly, Shah Rukh is a great fan of the national award winner director T. Hariharan and is also quite keen on watching the movie. When the film's director T Hariharan approached Shah Rukh for the movie, Shahrukh readily agreed to do the prologue without even charging a penny. Elaborating on this, Praveen VC, executive producer of the movie says, "Shah Rukh comes from the family of freedom fighters and feels happy to be associated with such project''.

The makers of the movie are keen on taking the best from the industry and in no condition are willing to compromise on the quality. The Tamil of the movie was also given its due worth when superstar Kamal Hassan dubbed the prologue. The Malayalam original has Mohanlal introducing PAZHASSI RAJA to the audiences through a 45 second prologue.

The film is a historical on Pazhassi Raja played by Mammootty, a native king of Waynad in Malabar area of Kerala. He is said to be one of the first freedom fighters who started a guerilla war against the British. Apart from superstars Mammootty and Sarath Kumar, the film also stars, Manoj K. Jayan, Thilakan, Padmapriya, Kanika and Jagathi Sreekumar in other pivotal roles. The roles of the East India officials are played by Peter Handley Evans and Harry Key among others.
