EXCLUSIVE: No Eid bash for Shah Rukh Khan this year – here’s why

It is a tradition for fans to wait for Shah Rukh Khan on Eid outside his house, Mannat, in Bandra. But it won’t happen this year. The actor will give Eid celebrations at home a miss this year as he is currently shooting for his film Zero in the US. The last known location of the crew was Los Angeles.

Every year, SRK invites entertainment journalists to his house and treats them with the most delicious food. A swarm of fans also flock outside his house and he waves at them from a specially made parapet. For the past few years, his youngest son, AbRam, has been accompanying him for the waving ceremony. Just in case pictures weren’t adorable enough already. In fact, this waving at fans is so important to him that he had ditched his birthday party in Alibaug midway last year only to come and wave at his fans. But due to his schedule, he won’t be able to make it this year. We are sure the actor will celebrate the festival in its full glory wherever on this planet he is.

But well, just to compensate for his absence, Shah Rukh did release the first teaser of Zero today. And fans are absolutely in love with this Eidi. The second official footage of this film, directed by Aanand L Rai, also featured Salman Khan, unveiling his much talked about cameo. The teaser, at the time of writing this story, has already garnered 4 million views on YouTube.

Zero also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in key roles. We get to see Katrina in the new teaser as her face is printed on the Tee that SRK is wearing. The movie also features more than a dozen cameos apart from Salman’s. The movie is slated to release on December 21.
