Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie Zero is almost ready to be released by the end of this month and, the director of the movie, Anand L Rao seems to be very proud of his decision of casting Shah Rukh Khan in the lead Role.
In a recent interview, Aanand L Rai got candid about his upcoming movie Zero and spoke a lot about the cast and the story. Most of what he spoke was an appreciation for the Badshah of Bollywood. The director told the media that the lead role in the movie needed someone who was as confident as SRK. Shah Rukh Khan is playing the role of a vertically challenged man in the movie.
Aanand L Rai’s movie Manmarziyaan got released recently. If the box office collection is considered, the movie is doing well. The film directed is very enthusiastic about his upcoming movie with the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan.
In the latest interview given by Aanand L Rai, he confessed to the fact that Shah Rukh Khan was chosen to play the role as he was considered the best fit for the role, and not because he just wanted to work with Shah Rukh Khan. He also told that they needed an actor who was self-assured to play the role of a dwarf. The role is very challenging as the actor could be trolled for his look in the movie.
Though the story and genre of the movie are still kept as a suspense, in this interview, the director spilled some beans on the movie. The director said that the movie will make people laugh a lot, get emotional, and make you happy at the same time. The movie is supposed to be an extended version of previous movies directed by Aanand but with more challenging story and direction.
As Aanand is known for his small budgeted, small-town related movies like Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu series, the director spoke to the interviewer about the change in choice of movies. He said that there is no change in the budget or any other aspect of his movie-making other than his storytelling skills. Aanand told that his graph is changing only as a storyteller.
