“SRK’s role in Zero drained him mentally and physically.” – Aanand L Rai
Shah Rukh Khan is the Badshah of Bollywood. Every project that has his name attached to it becomes the biggest film of the year and that’s exactly what’s happened with Zero. Aanand L Rai’s next stars Shah Rukh, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in pivotal parts, however Aanand has said it time and again that the audience will be mesmerised by Shah Rukh’s part in the film.
Recently during an interview with a leading daily, he said, “The film and Khan saab surprised me. When I saw it recently, I wondered how I managed it. Zero was tough for me as a director, but even more so for Khan saab. This is his toughest role. It drained him physically and mentally. He could not afford to slip even for a second.”
