We all had very high expectations from Shah Rukh Khan’s last release ‘Zero’, even he had. But the movie eventually received a lot of flak from the audience and the critics as well. Now, according to the reports in Bollywood Hungama, Shahrukh is blaming the director of the film, Anand L. Rai entirely for the film’s box office performance and is a bit upset with him that he stopped picking up the director’s calls even.
A source, talking about the same matter told a web portal, “Shahrukh has stopped taking Rai’s calls. He blames Rai entirely for the fiasco that was Zero. What was Aanand Rai thinking? This is what Shah Rukh now wonders, like everybody else.” he further added that Shah Rukh Khan was in a shock with the failure of the movie, he said, ”Shahrukh is so shocked with the failure of the movie, both creative and financial, that he has put all his future projects on hold including the hit franchise Don.”
Talking to another insider close to the superstar, we got to know that, “They had mutually agreed to share a creative partnership. But after the release of Zero, I don’t think Shahrukh even wants to see Aanand Rai’s face.”
Talking about the movie’s failure, King Khan had told a Chinese web portal, “It’s a different experience because we made the film with a lot of love, but many people did not like it. If the audience didn’t like it, then so be it, there’s nothing that can be done.”
When he was asked about his upcoming projects, he revealed, ”This time, I didn’t feel like doing it. I thought, this time, I will take out time to watch films and listen to scripts and read books. My kids are also finishing their college life. Suhana is still in college, Aryan will hopefully pass his college in a year. I want to spend more time with my family.” adding further he said, “I said somewhere that I might decide in June about my next project. But I won’t even do it in June, I will only do a film when I feel like doing it from my heart. I only act when it comes from my heart, but this time I don’t feel like doing it.” ”A lot of people are telling me stories, I’ve heard 15-20 stories, I liked 2-3 of them. But I haven’t decided yet which film to do. Because the moment I take a decision, I will have to start working on films. I will completely be engrossed in it.”
