Bollywood King Khan SRK’s most awaited movie, Zero under the direction of Anand L.Rai has been making the headlines recurringly. While Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero is garnering applause from all over, there’s someone who seems to be mighty upset.
Shah Rukh Khan recently took to his Twitter account to give his fans the most beautiful New Year gift by revealing the name of his upcoming movie. He tweeted, “टिकटें लिए बैठें हैं लोग मेरी ज़िंदगी की, तमाशा भी पूरा होना चाहिए! As promised, here’s the title of @aanandlrai ‘s film. @AnushkaSharma #KatrinaKaif @RedChilliesEnt @cypplOfficial”
It isn’t the title but the lines used in the tweet that has caused poet Mithilesh Baria to be upset. The lines are from a poem by Mithilesh Baria and Shah Rukh forgot to give him the credit for them. He was notified of the same by his fans, he demanded clarification after that for the same.
टिकटें लिए बैठें हैं लोग मेरी ज़िंदगी की, तमाशा भी पूरा होना चाहिए!

In an interview with Mid-Day, he said, “This appears to be a lapse on their part. But when the project is of this stature, all a writer wants is to be credited for his creation. I was shocked and hurt when fans bought this to my notice. It appears that the line is a part of the film’s narrative, not a mere tweet. So, I hope they give me my due credit.”
He further added, “He assured me that it was a mistake, and he would do his best to rectify it. I am not sure how he will do so. Will Shah sa’ab put out another tweet crediting me? Rai- Ji seemed like an affable man. I hope they are fair.”
Well, this seems like a narrow escape from the wrath of the writer. Also, Mithilesh Baria will soon see his name on the credit’s list.
