Shah Rukh Khan–Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma starrer, Zero, not only happens to be producer-director, Anand L Rai’s most challenging project till date, but is perhaps one of the most anticipated films of the year as well. The film’s teaser released on the first day of this year and we were all left visibly stunned seeing Shah Rukh Khan in a unseen avatar till now, as a midget. If this wasn’t enough to fuel our curiosity for the film, the makers and actors have been sharing pics from the sets that are only making us eager for the film’s release. Well, reports suggest that the film also stars Abhay Deol, who will be playing Katrina’s love interest.
As per a popular daily, Katrina essays the role of an actress who is reeling from a heartbreak, courtesy Abhay Deol, who has an extended guest appearance in the film. To say that we can’t wait to see the actor on screen after a long time, is certainly an understatement. A source in the know of this development was quoted by a daily as saying, “Abhay plays the boyfriend who dumps Katrina in the film. He will shoot most of his scenes with her. Even though it’s a cameo, he agreed to do it instantly because of his relationship with Aanandji, with whom he has had successful collaborations like Raanjhanaa (2013) and Happy Bhag Jayegi (2016).”
While SRK is playing the role of a vertically challenged person in the film, reports suggest that he isn’t the only one who is struggling with a challenge. A leading daily had quoted a source as saying that Katrina is an alcoholic in the film, who struggles with this addiction, where as Anushka Sharma is a struggling scientist in the film. Perhaps, Katrina’s broken relationship with Abhay Deol is the reason why she takes to alcohol. It would be interesting to see how the story unfolds and we can’t seem to wait for the film anymore. Zero is slated to release on December 21, 2018.
