The trailer of Shah Rukh Khan’s next Zero is finally launched on the actor’s 53rd birthday. He plays a dwarf for the first time and Anushka plays a paraplegic woman for the first time too. Katrina Kaif plays herself, a film star. The trailer suggests there is more to the story than just a dwarf trying to win over his lady love. Dwarf Bauaa Singh is not perturbed by his height, or lack of it, and harbors big dreams. He stumbles upon a picture of a beautiful girl but is shocked to know she is a paraplegic. That doesn’t deter him from wooing Aafiya Yusufzai Bhinder. Aafiya also falls for Bauaa. Bauaa reveals about his first crush Katrina, who is now a superstar actress.
The trailer ends with Bauaa talking about getting the moon, and a rocket launch. The makers have cleverly shown the launch as a teaser, without revealing anything more. The supporting cast includes Tigmanshu Dhulia, Abhay Deol and Sridevi, who died on February 26, in her final on-screen appearance. The film reportedly also features a host of celebrity cameos. The music has been composed by Ajay-Atul. Zero has been produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions. It comes across as a fun romantic film that will also subtly reflect how society looks upon its Bauaas and Aafiyas. It does appear a little larger than life. The film will be released on the 21st of December.
