The director said, “The film and Khan saab surprised me. When I saw it recently, I wondered how I managed it. Zero was tough for me as a director, but even more so for Khan saab. This is his toughest role. It drained him physically and mentally. He could not afford to slip even for a second”.

Zero also has a cameo by Salman Khan. A glimpse of the same was released as Eid gift to the audience earlier this year. The film is one of the most anticipated Hindi films of the year and is slated for release on December 21.
