The year 2018 is gearing up to be quite an exciting one, especially with Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan finally unveiled the title and teaser of his next movie with Anand L. Rai! he film, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in pivotal roles, will see the megastar in a never-seen-before avatar. SRK will be playing a vertically challenged man or a dwarf in Zero.
While the movie itself will only release in December, the excitement and buzz that has been created around the film is hard to beat. Here are a few things we know about Zero so far:
Shah Rukh Khan’s Character
Zero is going to see Shah Rukh Khan in a brand new light. This is also the first time that Shah Rukh Khan and L. Anand Rai are going to come together for a movie. Anand has given us some fantastic movies like Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Tanu Weds Manu. According to sources, one of the most exciting things about Zero is the fact that Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of a dwarf!
“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 will look this way. I want to replace that image with the right image. The film’s USP is Shah Rukh’s performance,” Rai said in a statement.
इतना सारा प्यार!!! #2ZERO18 की शुरुआत बढ़िया हुई…
3.2 करोड़ लोगो के प्यार के लिए शुक्रिया।

Anushka Sharma’s and Katrina Kaif’s Characters
It’s not only Shah Rukh Khan who is going to play a different role in the movie. Anushka Sharma is going to play a brand new role and it is going to be that of a differently abled person. Katrina Kaif is going to play the role of an actress. According to the rumour mill, the movie was initially going to be titled Katrina Meri Jaan. However, the makers changed the title because they thought this would make people think the movie was about Katrina Kaif.
Apart from the brand new roles portrayed by the three leads, VFX is also going to play a major role in the movie. “The makers will not superimpose SRK’s face on a vertically challenged actor. They will shoot using Forced Perspective, a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It will make SRK look shorter,” said a source close to the movie.
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia To Play SRK’s Father
The Gangs of Wasseypur actor who himself has directed critically acclaimed movies like Paan Singh Tomar and Haasil, will be seen playing Shah Rukh’s father in the film. The filmmaker said that he wanted to be a part of the project as he wanted to see how things are developed technically on such a scale.
Guess who’s back on screen with Shah Rukh Khan after 19 long years? Rani Mukerji and Kajol, that’s who! Yes, you read that right. The trio, who was earlier seen together in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, will next be seen in Rai’s film. The two will be seen playing themselves in cameo roles.
So clearly the movie Zero has a lot to offer and a lot for us to look forward to! If you still have NOT watched the teaser yet, watch it here!
FIR Filed Against Salman Khan And Katrina Kaif For Casteist Remarks
Late Yesterday, a petition for an FIR was filed in a Delhi Court against Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. According to reports, the two actors had allegedly made casteist remarks during the promotion of their latest movie, Tiger Zinda Hai.
The court listed the matter for consideration for 27 February and also sought a reply from the Delhi police on the complaint. The plea, filed in the Patiala House Court, alleged Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif had made remarks which were insulting, derogatory and affected the sentiments of a particular cast.
The complaint, filed by Harnam Singh, a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, alleged the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel while Kaif, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”
An inquiry has been led into this matter and the Delhi police have said they will look into the matter and get to the bottom of this issue as soon as possible.
Pari Teaser 5 Will Make You Lose Your Sleep
Holi, the festival of colours, has different connotations. For some, it is the defeat of good over evil while for others, it is about the colours. For Anushka Sharma on the other hand, it is about her new horror flick, Pari.

The opening shot of this teaser features a pale white Anushka walking in a jungle while a full moon can also be seen in the background. Yes, this is the first clip from Pari that places Anushka outside her house and in the classic horror movie setting.
She walks to a pond and when she looks into it, she sees the bloody, battered Anushka looking right back at her. As a result, the fish of the pond begins to die and soon the pond is full of dead fish floating on its surface. The tone of this teaser is perfect.
Every part of this teaser is imbibed in horror and from the way it has been directed, one gets the feeling of Anushka being haunted by a ghost like dopple ganger. Watch the brand new teaser here!
Directed by debutant director Prosit Roy, Pari is not your average fairy tale. Also starring Parambrata Chatterjee, Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty, this movie is going to be Clean Slate Films third production venture after NH10 and Phillauri. Pari is scheduled to hit the screens on 2 March, 2018 so this Holi, stay clean and safe! While we wait for the film to hit the screens, check out the new poster here.
