Filmmaker Anand L Rai’s Zero featuring actors Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma has released. The movie opened to mixed reviews and there were several people who stated that Zero couldn’t live up to their expectations. Recently, director Anurag Kashyap watched the film and in a series of tweets, he stated that it deserves a viewing for reasons more than one. He called it a brave film adding that all the stars have come out of their comfort zones. Earlier, Karan Johar also lauded the movie calling it a must watch.

Anurag took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Zero deserves a viewing just for so many new grounds it breaks within the mainstream . And then seeing all the Stars getting out of their comfort zones and pushing themselves by breaking the typecasts, breaking the expectations and not playing safe. I really liked the film.”

He further said, “I have always maintained and tell my people , that best way to read a book and watch a film is to go in with a blank slate . And its ironical that the reason some films get made (superstars) is also the reason they are not seen in correct perspective.”

Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai also showered love on the movie and said that she is a big SRK fan.

Zero collected Rs 20.14 cr on its opening day and Rs 18.22 crore on Saturday. The total collection of the movie now stands at Rs 38.36 crore. There are chances that numbers might get affected in future as Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba is all set to hit the screens on December 28.

SRK played the role of a dwarf in the film. Anushka was seen as a scientist suffering from cerebral palsy and Katrina as a superstar.
