Shah Rukh Khan and the Zero team together unveiled the movie’s trailer yesterday, on 2nd November. It was also Shah Rukh Khan’s 53rd birthday which made the event even more special. Anand L. Rai, the director, Anushka Sharma, and Katrina Kaif, the lead actresses in the film along with Shah Rukh Khan were also present at the trailer launch. On Thursday, Shah Rukh shared new Zero posters uncovering Katrina and Anushka’s looks in the film teasing the fans, making them even more curious. The one much talked about thing since it’s teaser released earlier this year on Eid, is Salman Khan cameo in Zero which apparently brought a smile to a lot of Bollywood fans.
There was some sort of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan rivalry in the past which now seems to be fading away. Last year, Shah Rukh did a cameo appearance in Salman Khan’s Tubelight and now it is Salman Khan who will be seen in a song in Zero. In the Zero teaser, Salman Khan is introduced by Javed Jaffrey, he says,
“Dabanggon ki pehchaan, tigeron ki shaan, iss baar ki Eid ka pura chaand, Saaaaaaalmaaaaan Khan!”
Shah Rukh, during the trailer launch, disclosed how everything actually came to be, how the cameo happened. He said,
“Anand (L. Rai, Director) has spoken to Katrina (Kaif) regarding this film quite sometimes ago and that time Salman also heard the story.
Then Salman called and said that there was this story and hear it. The coincidence is that, when finally, I said yes to the film, after that he said that I will be a part of this film for sure, by doing a song. That was very dignified and loving of him.
He really wanted to be in the film. Aur Salman bohot hi pyara insaan hai yaar.”
There are reports, that he will be featuring in a song probably titled, Chaknachur Hai, in the film along with Shah Rukh Khan. Their camaraderie was teased in the trailer and the song looked really fun.
Anushka’s look had got everyone interested in the movie even more. But as seen in the poster, she will be wheelchair ridden in the movie. Zero would be Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan’s fourth film together. On working with SRK again, she said,
“This year I am completing 10 years in Bollywood. I made my debut with Shah Rukh and now after 10 years, in 2018 I am doing another film with him, it is so special and this is how life has come in a full circle.”
Anand L. Rai has always been an SRK admirer and when he was asked about how was it working with both the superstars, Shah Rukh and Salman Khan, he said,
“If you meet somebody and if you understand that person while interacting or spending time with him then, he doesn’t give you vibes of a star. It creates such a relationship or an atmosphere where they never made me realise that both of them are the superstars with their greatness.”
Salman Khan’s cameo in Zero has definitely got people’s attention even more and it would be a blast to see them enjoy on the big screen together. Shah Rukh Khan’s character in the film will be called Bauua Singh, Anushka Sharma is reportedly playing a scientist and Katrina Kaif will be pulling off the character of an actress in the film. Zero is slated to hit the theatres on 21 December 2018.
