Release date: 21st December 2018
The most anticipated movie of the year, Zero is less than a month away now. Everyone’s more than excited to see Shah Rukh Khan in his all-new half-atar. The movie has been in news right from the inception of the concept in 2012 and the news of casting and shoots constantly popped up over all these years. The title of the movie was confirmed on the 1st of January this year and the teaser made everyone go gaga. But everyone went actually crazy after the first teaser released where both Bhai Jaan and King Khan shared the same screen, after years. The movie is highly anticipated and for all the right reasons.
Zero revolves around Bauua Singh (Shah Rukh Khan), who is a short man from Meerut and is in search of a companion. He comes across Aafia (Anushka Sharma), a NASA scientist with a condition called cerebral palsy. They get along well. There’s another girl Babita (Katrina Kaif), who is a superstar. She also becomes a part of Bauua’s life, challenging his relationship with Aafia. From the trailer, the movie looks like a love triangle as both the ladies have a scene in their wedding attire. There’s also a rocket being launched at the end of the trailer which sort of hints towards Bauua being focused on finding his true calling. Well, the trailer doesn’t really give the story of the movie away and it has made the wait even harder than before.
With increasing excitement, every second of footage is getting a lot of traction and the crew is releasing very interesting content to keep up the expectations of the fans. One of the videos shows the lead cast and the director sitting together discussing how they were deceived into the role they are playing. Each one of them was told that their role is the most important one of the story and Aanand L. Rai is trying to handle that situation. It is quite funny too. Watch the video here:
The promotions of the movie started right before the grand trailer launch where a replica of Meerut was created at the Imax theatre at Wadala, Mumbai. The grand launch and the trailer were both very well received. The movie is actually giving promotional goals to future Bollywood movies, and it doesn’t stop with the massive trailer launch. There are multiple online contests, behind-the-scene videos, and candid chats. The movie is also collaborating with YouTube Original‘s first reality venture ARRived, whose winner will become the voice of Zero.
From the trailer of the movie, it is quite evident that we’ll get to see the quintessential wooing of a girl in Shah Rukh style which makes us believe that the movie will have a few romance numbers. One of the songs have already been released and it is quite dreamy. Mera Naam Tu was released recently and already has more than 35 million views which is enough proof that it is being loved by everyone. We are eagerly looking forward to more songs that will release in the few days that are left before the release.
Zero is all set to release on 21st December 2018. Keep visiting this space for more on the movie and our review.
