When a superhero costume literally becomes your second skin, a simple trip to the loo can seem the biggest mission you'll ever accomplish. Shah Rukh Khan would be the first to agree.

The star is getting some serious bladder control practice ever since he started shooting for Ra.One. Shah Rukh, who plays a superhero in this Anubhav Sinha directed film, undergoes an everyday ordeal when he wriggles into a tight fitting, moulded rubber costume. It's so snug a fit that getting out of it is something he's willing to endure only once a day. And that's where the problem starts.

A source from the unit reveals, “SRK is shooting for Ra.One in Mumbai in this sultry heat. The shift usually extends to 10-12 hours everyday. The rubber suit sticks to his body and that makes the heat even more unbearable. It is such a tedious job to get in and out of the thick rubber costume — it takes almost 40 minutes — that SRK can't even go the loo during the whole shift. But rather than complain about it, SRK laughs it off. He often jokes with the film's cast and crew that if he can't use the loo, he won't allow any of them to use it either.” Shah Rukh could not be reached for comment.
