Shah Rukh Khan’s next with Anand L Rai has been on news for a long time and the announcement of the title (Zero) has skyrocketed the excitement among moviegoers.
The movie also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in pivotal roles. Now, according to a report in Mid-day, Katrina Kaif spoke about the fact that she was offered the role earlier. So it looks like SRK wasn’t Aanand L Rai’s first choice.
“Initially, I was supposed to play myself in Zero. The film was titled Katrina Meri Jaan. There was a different cast on board and Shah Rukh sir wasn’t part of it. Now, it’s a satirical take on an actress,” says Kaif.
Shah This will be her second film with Shah Rukh Khan, to which she said, “Shah Rukh sir is one of the best actors in the industry. His drive, energy, and passion are commendable. It’s great to be around him on a set.” Though she doesn’t divulge details, it’s apparent that Kaif doesn’t share screen space with Anushka Sharma, who also stars in Zero. Heaping praise for the film’s director, she says,” Anand sir is fantastic. He helps you as an actor. You get to learn a lot from him.”
They were rumours that the role was first offered to Salman Khan. But the kind of massy roles he does, it’s sure that such a role wouldn’t have suited him.
