A grab of Shah Rukh Khan’s dwarf film Zero

Zero. That’s the title of  Shah Rukh Khan’s next film. Directed by Aanand L. Rai, the film is slated for release on December 21 and co-stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. 

The first teaser of the film, released on January 1, shows a dwarf who claims to change people’s lives for the better. Yet, the character appears to have shades of grey with words such as mental, chichora and kamzarf being on the screen before his entry in the teaser. 

At first sight, people have praised Khan for taking up the challenging role despite not having a great run at the box office recently. However, Aanand L. Rai has a great track record.

Khan’s character is seen dancing to the Mohammad Rafi classic Is Deewane Dil Ne Kya Kya Jaadu Chalaya from the film Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965).

A close look at the teaser reveals SRK has a picture of Katrina on his jacket. Confirming this, Katrina said she’s playing herself in the film and the character of SRK is her fan.
