One of the most awaited films of the year, Aanand L Rai’s Zero, hits the screens to­day. The film cel­e­brates life while em­brac­ing one’s in­com­plete­ness, mak­ing it a must watch for fam­i­lies this Christ­mas. While the teasers, trailer and songs have al­ready made the au­di­ence fall in love with the adorable yet mis­chievous Bauua es­sayed by Shah Rukh Khan, the film is all set to un­veil the var­i­ous facets of his char­ac­ter. The au­di­ences will also be sur­prised as the lead­ing ladies — Anushka Sharma and Ka­t­rina Kaif will be seen es­say­ing roles they have never por­trayed be­fore. Direc­tor Aanand L Rai says, “Shah Rukh makes me feel so com­fort­able and makes you feel like he is the most obe­di­ent ac­tor you have ever worked with. I have found a friend and a big brother in him. I am en­joy­ing the process and he is let­ting me fly.” Chal­leng­ing the ac­tors to play in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters has al­ways been Rai’s forte. Zero also a pow­er­ful sup­port cast and some in­ter­est­ing guest ap­pear­ances. “I feel for­tu­nate to be able to be part of this (film) with the kind of tal­ent that we have — Aanand sir, Shah Rukh and Anushka,” says Ka­t­rina. Anushka says, “Shah Rukh and my char­ac­ters have chal­lenges, but they also have dreams and de­sires.” Zero show­cases Shah Rukh as the ver­ti­cally chal­lenged Bauua, Anushka as Aafia, a sci­en­tist suf­fer­ing from cere­bral palsy and Ka­t­rina as a Bol­ly­wood su­per­star named Babita Ku­mari. The mu­sic of the film, com­posed by Ajay-atul has also cre­ated buzz, giv­ing a glimpse of the var­ied flavours of the film. Red Chill­ies En­ter­tain­ment and Colour Yel­low Pro­duc­tions come to­gether to bring Zero. Pro­duced by Gauri Khan, the film re­leases across cin­e­mas to­day.
