- "I needed a big star," said the director
- VFX plays a major role in the film
- SRK portrays the role of a dwarf
In a career spanning for over 25 years, SRK has never played the character of a dwarf. Mr Rai revealed why he chose the superstar to play the role. "I needed a big star and even if you cut two feet away from Khan saab, he'd still stand tall. Also, this story has a wide reach and he will take it to the world," he said.
For SRK's look, the makers of Zero have used advanced technology inspired from Hollywood films. However, Aanand L Rai said that despite the film being VFX heavy, SRK made it 'fun.'
Here's the first teaser of Zero.
On being asked about if Zero will be a game-changer, Aanand L Rai said, "That's a word I would like to hear from someone else, not from my own lips. But what I can promise is some take-away, people will discuss it long after it's over."
For Bollywood, Zero is already a 'winner' and Twitter too has the same opinion.
Bhai this is absolutely superb!!! Technology meets mainstream entertainment! Winner!!! https://t.co/W06PJ7Pws1— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) January 1, 2018
