Zero Hour: Shah Rukh Khan’s Birthday Countdown Begins With New Posters, Aamir praises Zero trailer

A day before releasing the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, the makers treated us to two brand new posters from the forthcoming film. The first poster features Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in a romantic pose while the second one stars him with Anushka Sharma in a happy mood. “Sitaaron ke khwaab dekhne walon, humne toh chaand ko kareeb se dekha hai,” is how SRK described his moment with Katrina, who looks resplendent in a red thigh high-slit dress and strikes an intense pose with Bauua Singh, played by the 52-year-old superstar. For the poster with Anushka, SRK wrote, “Iss poori duniya mein, meri barabari ki ek hi toh hai.” She is seen sitting on a wheelchair and a happy Bauua Singh poses beside her. They have been pictured at the busy Connaught Place in Delhi.
With Zero posters, the countdown to Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday begins. He will turn 53 on November 2.

Take a look.


On Wednesday, it was announced that the much-awaited trailer of Zero will be unveiled on the superstar’s birthday in a big fat event. The trailer will release at the IMAX in Mumbai’s Wadala, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh, adding that the makers are recreating a Meerut like-setting as part of the film is set in the city.

018 will end with a bang. While Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan will hit the screens on November 8, Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero will release on December 21. There is an enormous amount of hype and buzz around the two Khan films and fans are eagerly waiting with bated breath for their favourite stars to set the screens on fire.

The trailer of Zero will release on November 2. Aamir took to Twitter and gushed about the trailer. “Guys, I just saw the trailer of Zero. Just one word… OUTSTANDING!!! Congratulations @aanandlrai ! #Katrina is fantastic! @AnushkaSharma is unbelievable! @iamsrk, you have outdone yourself! Can’t wait to watch the film!”

SRK even shared a picture with Aamir on his social media accounts and wrote, “Hug from the thug! Beat that!”


SRK unveiled the posters of Zero, featuring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma today. This will be the trio’s second collaboration, as they had starred together in the 2012 film Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Katrina is said to be playing an actress battling alcoholism in Zero, and Anushka is expected to play a scientist. SRK will play the role of a vertically challenged man.

About why the film is titled Zero , “I wanted to celebrate ‘Zero’; I wanted to celebrate the incompleteness in people. There is nothing great in being a complete person. There is a beauty to incompleteness. We all are humans and Zero comes from there,” director Aanand L Rai had once said in an interview to PTI.
