Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan turned 53 on November 2 and rang in his birthday with the trailer launch of Zero. As the movie is one of the highly awaited films of the year, it also has a cameo of Salman Khan. Speaking about the superstar doing an appearance in a song, Shah Rukh Khan revealed that he came to know about Aanand L Rai project through Salman Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan essays the role of a vertically-challenged person in the film. At the trailer launch, he talked about Salman suggesting him the film and later agreeing to do a cameo. “It’s not true that he (Aanand L Rai) asked a lot of people. Salman had actually called me and said, ‘there’s this film, do it.’ The reason he came and did that song was because of this. He wanted to be a part of the film.”
“Salman is a wonderful human being. For him to remember that a year later or months later when the film was actually being told to Katrina to come back and say ‘I want to be a part of this film because I’ve heard this film.’ It was very dignified, decent of him,” SRK added.
Zero is a story that celebrates life, the first look of the film featured Shah Rukh Khan as the adorable vertically challenged man piquing the interests of the audience to witness the unusual tale. The film is set to have many cameos including Salman Khan, Sridevi, Karisma Kapoor, Kajol, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Rani Mukerji. It will also see Jimmy Sheirgill and Abhay Deol in guest appearances too. It is set to release on December 21, 2018.
