The wait of months is finally over! The title of Shah Rukh Khan and Anand L. Rai‘s much-awaited dwarf movie has been unveiled. The movie starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the female leads is titled Zero. SRK took to twitter to announce the title of the movie along with a video as a New Year gift to his fans. Here are more insights into Zero.
Shah Rukh Khan Plays a Dwarf!
The video released by the superstar has left everyone awestruck. The reason being SRK himself who can be seen in the unusual character of a dwarf. He looks unbelievably convincing in his dwarf look. This will be the first time that the lead character of a movie is a dwarf, that too portrayed by a superstar. Kudos to the technology and the hard work of the team to bring out such an extra ordinary character.
The Quirky Title Announcement Video
The video begins with a number of adjectives like “pagal,” “dildaar,” “makkar,” “ishqbaaz” appearing on the screen one after the other to describe SRK’s character. SRK is seen dancing on Mohammed Rafi’s hit song “Hum Ko Tum Pe Pyar Aaya” from Jab Jab Phool Khile featuring late veteran actor Shashi Kapoor.
The Baadshah can be seen flaunting three different looks. In the first look, he is wearing formals. In the second look, he is looking hilarious as he dances in boxers. In the third look, Shah Rukh wears a jacket which has images of Katrina. The one minute video ends with the wrapping dialogue by Shah Rukh Khan where he says, “Hum jiske peeche lag jate hain, uski life bana dete hain.”
Visually Heavy Effect Film
Zero is a dream project that was conceptualized by Anand L. Rai’s team long back. Since the movie features Shah Rukh Khan in the role of a dwarf, the movie demanded heavy special effects. Few days back, SRK took to his Instagram account and posted a picture from the sets of Zero. In the image posted by him, we can see dolly, chroma screens and a lot of gizmos and galore that sum up the hard work that is going into the making of Zero.
The Reunion of Jab Tak Hai Jaan Trio
The movie which reunites the Jab Tak Hai Jaan trio of Shah Rukh, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif will see the gorgeous Katrina playing the role of a Bollywood celebrity. The film is said to be based on the love story where the 3 feet tall dwarf SRK falls in love with superstar Katrina. Anushka Sharma, who recently married cricketer Virat Kohli will be seen portraying the character of a mentally-challenged girl.
Stalwart Anand L Rai and SRK’s Maiden Collaboration
While SRK is the King of romance, Anand L. Rai has helmed blockbuster movies like Tanu Weds Manu, Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Raanjhanaa. The spectacular director is known for his unique style of filmmaking which has the ability to showcase ordinary things extraordinarily. It is going to be a treat to see these two stalwarts of the film industry coming together for a project.
Clash with Sara Ali Khan’s Debut Film
Produced under SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Zero is all set to hit the theatres during the Christmas weekend, that is on December 21 this year. It’s clashing with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, that marks the debut of Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan opposite heartthrob Sushant Singh Rajput. With Zero’s announcement, it is going to be a big challenge for the makers of Kedarnath to make way for their movie.
