Bollywood’s very own Shah Rukh Khan did not have things going his way in 2017 as his two films failed to make the kind of impact on the box office which he would have liked. His first release Raees was still had a moderate run at the theatres but the second one Jab Harry Met Sejal was rated as a disaster both by the critics and the audience.
But as soon as the new year started Shah Rukh gave his fans something to celebrate. Shah rukh and Director Anand L Rai unveiled the title of his next movie. The name of the movie has been kept ‘Zero’ and Anand L Rai reveals the reason behind the same.
“I wanted to celebrate ‘Zero’; I wanted to celebrate the incompleteness in people. There is nothing great in being a complete person. There is a beauty to incompleteness. We all are humans and ‘Zero’ comes from there”.
“Though we are one year away from the release, the film is already getting so much love. So Khan sahab and I decided to give something to fans. It is purely out of the love and affection that we are getting from the fans.”
Shah Rukh is looking in a totally different avatar in the small clip that was unveiled yesterday. He was seen dancing carefreely to a crazy number. The first clip of the film promises a lot and it looks like Shah Rukh has delivered another masterclass as far as his acting is concerned.
“They (fans) are carrying an image in their mind, and it is not exactly what we have in the film. When we were working on it we did not know it (dwarf part) will look this way. I want to replace that image with the right image. The film’s USP is Shah Rukh’s performance”.
“There should be a synergy between the makers and the audience. I don’t want to create a gap. I need encouragement from the audience as you feel positive at work. It is very hectic, but it is keeping us happy.”
Anand L Rai was all praise for Shah Rukh and said that only a great actor like him could have pulled it off.
“I think I can do something like this only with a great actor like Shah Rukh. He is a very sure actor, he knows what he is doing and getting into. He has got a maker in him, and likes to put things on edge and this is a brilliant thing.”
“I can ask for anything from this actor. With words like ‘pagal’, ‘shayar’ and ‘aashiq’.. I think this is how we are in real life, a combination of different emotions.”
