SRK unveils his dwarf avatar for Zero


Shah Rukh Khan treated his fans with the title and teaser of his first creative collaboration with director Aanand L Rai on the first day of 2018. The film, Zero, features the actor as a dwarf.
According to Rai, this is a story that celebrates the imperfections in one's life.
The teaser unveiled shows Shah Rukh essaying a vertically challenged man, dancing away at a party. The teaser ends with a dialogue in which he talks about why people call him a"zero" and how he amplifies the lives of others if he stands behind them.
On casting Shah Rukh, Rai said,"I had no option other than Khan saab because I needed an intelligent actor, who can also carry that happy-go-lucky attitude."
Explaining the thought behind making such a movie and zeroing in on the title, Rai said:"Like we say that perfect is boring, imperfection is interesting... Our film also celebrates the same. The story is of the perfect love story of two imperfect people.
"The protagonist of the film is a dwarf but more than the physical disability of an individual, the story talks about the emotional incompleteness in our lives."
The central character of the Red Chillies Entertainment film is described as 'Paagal', 'Aashiq', 'Awaara' and more, but he is seen happy in his own world, not seeking empathy from anyone. His disability does not stop him from living a happy life.
"In the last few years, we have been hearing terms a lot and we can see how people have become over-sensitive to things used to be taken on a much lighter note. For instance, body-shaming. I am oversized and if friends calling me 'motu', I will not take that to heart and sulk over it.
"Even my friends will not go to that extent to bully or humiliate me. But it is happening now. I think this is the story we should celebrate now, to realise that we are all incomplete, we are all imperfect, but if we can change our perspective, we can complement each other to make things complete."
The film also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, but the teaser does not divulge anything about their roles. The actors had last featured together in Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
