‘Zero’s slow start at the box office would worry Shah Rukh Khan and the makers. The film deals with a unique concept and SRK has left no stone unturned in making this flick a huge and grand success. ‘Zero’ also brings back the trio of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma together.
‘Zero’ is expected to gain momentum over the weekend. The makers of the film would be expecting that with Christmas holidays around the corner, ‘Zero’ could attract more audience. But, the SRK’s flick will face some competition as Ranveer Singh‘s ‘Simmba’ is also releasing this coming week.
‘Zero’ presents the story of Bauua Singh, a vertically challenged man essayed by Shah Rukh Khan. Set against the backdrop of Meerut, ‘Zero’ presents a unique as well as rooted story.
