Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal is playing an antihero in that enormously hyped science-fiction film, Anubhav Sinha's "Ra.One."

In the official trailer, Arjun Rampal is seen sporting an almost bald-headed look and a black mask, to boot.

After the release of the trailer, Rampal's new look seems to have become the latest hit associated with "Ra.One."

Rampal's appearance has been kept under wraps, after first the leak of the song "Chammak Challo" and later the entire "Ra.One" music album.

If further proof of Rampal's character's supposedly villianous nature were needed, consider this piece of dialogue (from the official trailer): "Tum har saal Raavan ko isliye jalaate ho kyunki tum jante ho woh kabhi nahi marta (which translates as "You burn Raavan every year because you know he cannot die")."

Apart from Rampal, Chinese-American actor Tom Wu is also seen in the action-packed trailer.

The 38-year-old Rampal looks tough enough to fight Shah Rukh Khan's character, G.One.
