And here it is. The second teaser of Shah Rukh Khan‘s upcoming film, Zero is out. The movie directed by Aanand L Rai has the actor essaying the role of a dwarf. We got a look at how he is looking in the film when the first teaser – a title announcement video- dropped earlier in January. Today, in the new footage, we see him hanging out with Salman Khan. As we all know, Zero features a plethora of Bollywood cameos, one being by Salman. So, teaser number two highlights his role in the film which is just the perfect strategy to get everyone talking about the film. Seeing a quirky SRK, in his dwarf avatar, chilling with Salman is a sight to behold. Never in my life, did I think that I would be writing that sentence.
Interestingly, SRK had played a cameo in Salman Khan’s last year’s release, Tubelight. He played the role of a magician in the film, who had Salman fanboying on him. In Zero, the tables have turned; now it is SRK, who is a fan of Salman. It is made clear that Salman is playing himself for his cameo appearance. The two engage in a friendly dance battle in the short teaser. We also get to hear a song from the movie playing in the background which we are sure will become a chartbuster when it releases.
BTW in case, you missed it Katrina Kaif also makes an appearance in the new teaser. Sort of. If you look closely at SRK’s shirt, you can see that it has a picture of Katrina. The same was the case with the previous teaser.
The makers have used the technique of forced perspective in the majority of the scenes to make Shah Rukh look dwarfed. The same method was used in the famous Lord of the Rings series. Then, of course, there is VFX to the rescue. So far, the looks of the film have been successfully able to keep us intrigued and interested.
Speaking of Salman Khan, his next, Race 3 will hit the theatres on the occasion of Eid tomorrow. The movie has been directed by Remo D’Souza. In fact, Eid is the reason why SRK revealed the new footage with the hashtag #ZerocelebratesEid.
