Disney UTV's Digital arm announced the launch of the official mobile game based on the most awaited movie of the year - 'Chennai Express
'.The game was unveiled by Shah Rukh Khan
and Rohit Shetty
. Shah Rukh Khan
showed off his gaming skills as he challenged Rohit Shetty
to compete with him.
The game is very aptly called 'Escape From Rameshwaram' where Rahul embarks upon an exciting and colorful running adventure, and fights his way through an army of thugs from Chennai while dodging obstacles like trucks, buses, cars, coconut carts, manholes and more.
The game buff Shah Rukh said, ""To capture a movie in a game format is one of the most difficult and creatively challenging things to do. The movie has a vision and a theme, which a game needs to carry forward and keep the gamer engrossed in. The Chennai Express
game captures the theme, the graphics and the mood of the movie brilliantly. I am glad we have brought a game on table that people will find engrossing and easy to be a part of. I had a lot of fun being a part of the process of making this game. Hopefully the avid gamers will find this one as much fun as I did."
Much excited about the game launch, director Rohit Shetty
said, "Innovations are the need of the hour these days. And games have become a serious business. I am glad we have been able to make Chennai Express
a part of the gaming world. Hope everyone enjoys it"
