The trailer of the most awaited film of Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero will be unveiled tomorrow and we are super-excited to share 5 things that we will be checking out in the Aanand L Rai directed film.
1. Shah Rukh Khan as Dwarf
We have loved Kamal Hassan where he played a normal guy and a dwarf in the film Appu Raja. To prepare for his role in Zero, Shah Rukh Khan did meet the talented actor and study how a dwarf behaves, speaks, walks and talks. The effort has paid off as Shah Rukh does really well as dwarf in the first teaser released during EID this year. This will be the first time we will be witnessing Shah Rukh Khan doing something different.
2. Shah Rukh Khan collaborating with Aanand L Rai
From the heart-warming blockbuster entertainments like Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Aanand L Rai is directing Zero. Aanand L Rai confesses “Zero was tough for me as a director, but even more so for Khan saab. This is his toughest role. It drained him physically and mentally. He could not afford to slip even for a second.“. Expect a grand firework from both Aanand L Rai and Shah Rukh Khan in Zero.
3. Shah Rukh Khan pairing with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma
This will be the second time Shah Rukh will be pairing with Katrina Kaif after Jab Tak Hai Jaan and with Anushka Sharma after When Harry Met Sejal. While Katrina is playing a top-line actress in Zero, Anushka will be playing the role of a scientist in the film and from the first look of hers revealed yesterday, it is said to be using prosthetic for her look. The makers have hired Hollywood prosthetic artist Clover Wootton to work on her look.
4. Salman Khan’s special appearance will be crucial
Salman Khan has been lucky for Shah Rukh Khan when he plays a cameo in King Khan’s film. The first time Salman and Shah Rukh worked together was in Rakesh Roshan’s Karan Arjun. Audience loved their bonding so much that Karan Johar took the idea in his own film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai where Salman had made a special appearance. Salman Khan also made a good cameo in Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam which was even considered profitable. Few years down the lane, Farah Khan’s blockbuster Om Shanti Om made waves at the box office and had Salman as one of the celebrities in the song “Deewangi Deewangi“. The teaser of Zero featuring Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan had already won hearts of the audience. Will the history repeat itself with Zero at the box office ?
5. Visual Effects used for Zero
The budget of Zero is supposedly to be Rs 200 crores and it turns out to be the most expensive film of Shah Rukh Khan owing to high profile CGI being used in the film. As told to The Asian Age, “Zero has been shot over a period of 150 days, with some shoots in the USA. The film includes underwater and outdoor sequences. Several scenes have also been shot using chroma keying, and CG and VFX of the highest quality will be applied to them. The audience had some issues with some VFX scenes in Ra.One, so SRK and his Red Chillies team are working on eliminating those issues to get the best output this time”
We can’t wait to celebrate the birthday of Shah Rukh Khan as he will unveil the trailer of Zero.
