Reliance Broadcast Network Limited concluded its search for Delhi’s superheroes in a star-packed event at Reliance Metro airport line’s Shivaji stadium as a part of their promotion for Superstar Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming release, Ra.One.

He appreciated their selfless contribution in making Delhi a better and safer place to live. SRK was touched to hear the stories of real heroes of Delhi
The venue of this event, the spanking new & ultra modern Shivaji Stadium station of the Reliance Metro Airport line was totally immersed in the Ra.One flavour. The assembled crowd was not alone in marvelling at the “world-class” infrastructure and services provided at the station as SRK himself preferred to take a ride on the train in order to reach the venue from the airport. In fact the most exciting moment of the day for the real-life heroes was when they accompanied SRK on a super-fast journey, cutting through the traffic of Delhi.
The event, result of a partnership between RBNL, Eros & Red Chillies Entertainments, witnessed a hi-voltage promotional campaign for Ra.One across Delhi with the highlight being a giant out-of-home display on the entire glass façade of the Shivaji Stadium Station created by RBNL’s OOH arm, BIG Street.

We are sure that the audiences will love this movie and we wish Mr. Khan and the Eros-Red Chillies team all the very best.”
