Folks, looks like Shah Rukh Khan has reunited with Raees co-star Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub for Zero. On Thursday, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub joined the promotional duties for Zero as he shared the new posters of Zero and wrote: "Ye dekhiye.. .nazrein tiki hui hain, bas kuch din ka intezaar Aur hai...lajawaab. Shah Rukh sir ke saath khoobsoorat Katrina Kaif aapke saamne hain...shukriya Anand L Rai and Himanshu Sharma." In return, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub also received a shout-out from the superstar himself for being a great co-star.
