The chemistry between Anand L Rai and Shah Rukh Khan became so close during the shooting of Zero that both are planning to produce the remake of a South Korean film revolving around two female cops and as per early report, Katrina Kaif has been finalized to play one of leading female star.
Zero has suffered a big setback at the box office last year. Everything related to the comedy entertainer has been in news ever since its official announcement. The teaser of Salman Khan-Shah Rukh Khan which released during EID this year, last appearance of legendary actress Sridevi on silver screen as special guest, the thrilling climax scene and the news of Yash Raj Films distributing it overseas was just fabulous. However, the film received a lukewarm response at the ticket window, minting just Rs 98 crores against a budget of Rs 200 crores domestically.
However, one thing which remained after Zero was friendship between Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai. During the shooting of Zero, Anand L Rai became very close to Shah Rukh Khan as both shared the same passion of films. Shah Rukh was impressed with the unique films like Nil Battey Sannata, Bareily Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, Tumbbad produced by Rai that he decided to partner with him and will be producing the remake of a South Korean film revolving around two female cops and as per early report, Katrina Kaif has been finalized to play one of leading female star.
