Shah Rukh Khan’s much-awaited Christmas release – the Aanand L Rai-directed Zero – will now have a solo release, claims a report by Deccan Chronicle. The film was earlier going to clash with Hollywood flick Aquaman and the Anupam Kher-starrer The Accidental Prime Minister, which is based on the life of former Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.
If latest reports are to be be believed, Aquaman will now come out on December 7. The Accidental Prime Minister, on the other hand, will now hit the screens on December 14. Zero, meanwhile, will stick to its release date of December 21.
A source in the report has been quoted as saying, “This means that there will be a lot more screens available for Zero. The Accidental Prime Minister and Zero share some distributors, which is why they have decided to shift their release dates to avoid cannibalisation of their own business. They want to be able to give Zero the kind of treatment it deserves as it is Shah Rukh Khan’s most ambitious film to date. Reports on the film are fabulous, and it is expected to mark SRK’s return to King Khan status.” (When will Anushka Sharma’s look from Zero be revealed? This is what director Aanand L Rai has to say)
Zero, which has reportedly been made on a massive budget of Rs 200 crore, is one of the most awaited films this year. Jointly produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. In the film, SRK will be seen playing a dwarf man called Bauua Singh.
