Anand L Rai’s Zero is perhaps Shah Rukh Khan’s most ambitious film till date. With SRK’s last release, Jab Harry Met Sejal, bombing at the box office, he has pinned all his hopes on this film.
Shah Rukh and his Zero director were recently in conversation with a leading daily. When the actor was asked about his son AbRam’s reaction to the trailer of Zero and the answer will leave you in splits.
Pretending to be a busy AbRam, Shah Rukh dismissed the question with a wave of his hand and said, “Too good… too good.” He added that his son “doesn’t have time for anything”.
However, Shah Rukh seemed a little nervous about AbRam’s reaction to Zero. “I assume that at age five, you become a little sensible and so this will be my first film that could probably appeal to him. (Jab) Harry Met Sejal was a little adult for a kid and Fan was probably scary for him… he was just three then. So maybe Zero will be the first film of mine that he will like or dislike,” he said.
Zero will see Shah Rukh Khan playing a vertically challenged man from Meerut named Bauua Singh. He is in a complicated love triangle with a wheelchair-bound scientist (Anushka Sharma) and an actress battling alcoholism (Katrina Kaif).
The film, which has special appearances by Sridevi, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Rani Mukerji, Kajol and Salman Khan, is slated to release on December 21.
