It’s hard to believe but true. The much awaited upcoming Sharukh Khan film “Zero” was initially to be called “Katrina Meri Jaan”. Bollywood’s king Khan only had a guest appearance in it. The story was absolutely different then in comparison to what it is today. It’s only when Sharukh discussed with Anand L Rai regarding the project, things changed and materialized.
Well, needless is to say that now Sharukh Khan is the nucleus of the movie. In fact, the movie was slated to be released much earlier as well. Due to the addition of Shahrukh’s dwarf character, the film demanded a lot more technical enhancement. As a result, the film’s schedule had to be pushed for almost a year.
There is hardly any resemblance between the initial script and the one it is now. Katrina had to play herself in the movie. Interestingly, all these facts have been now revealed by the leggy lash Katrina herself.
However, Katrina has no regret of all these changes, despite knowing that when Shahrukh comes in picture, it becomes a Shahrukh Khan movie whatsoever. Katrina revealed that Shahrukh showed a lot of interest about the film especially after knowing about the dwarf idea, The King Khan liked this “dwarf” conception show much so that he himself became a part of it.
Apart from Sharukh and Katrina, recently married Anushka Sharma is also a part of “Zero”. It is here to mention that both Shahrukh and Katrina have worked with Anushka in “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” earlier. They had a great bonding with each other during “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, which is a big factor for the director Anand L Rai to bring energy on the sets.
Sharukh’s much ambitious “Zero” is all set to hit the theatres on “December 21st” this year, making it the grand Christmas release. The movie has to clash with “Kedarnath” starring Saif’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput in lead. However, the bigger challenge would be the release of ‘Simmba’ on next Friday itself. Simmba is also a big project of the year as two big names in tinsel town( Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar) are collaborating for it. The movie also stars Ranbir Singh, who is also considered among the leading actors in present scenario.
However, when you are having Shahrukh Khan on board, with such an ambitious project, you don’t need to worry about anything itself. The movie becomes huge with Shahrukh’s presence itself. The excitement as it is now, despite knowing that the movie is almost a year behind its release tells clearly how grand it is going to be.
