Mumbai: Fans of Shah Rukh Khan went gaga over his dwarf avatar in the teaser of Aanand L Rai’s Zero. The film will see SRK playing a character he has never essayed before. But if you are thinking only SRK has a challenging role to play, then you would be wrong. Latest report suggests that the leading ladies in the film – Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif – too have unusual characters to essay.
According to a report in Bollywoodlife.com, Anushka and Katrina will be essaying characters they have never played in the past.
“While everyone thinks that only Shah Rukh Khan has a special role in the film with a disability, they will be surprised to know that Anushka and Katrina’s characters also face various challenges. While everyone knows Katrina plays a diva, nobody knows that she is also an alcoholic in the movie. She battles with alcoholism, which affects her life in various ways. Anushka, on the other hand plays a struggling scientist. The makers are trying to keep these details a secret because they don’t want to give out too much information,” Bollywoodlife quoted a source as saying.
However, initial reports suggested that Anushka would be playing the role of a mentally challenged girl. Nonetheless, since the makers are tight-lipped about the plot and the characters in the film, we can only wait to know what they have in store for us.
Zero will mark Anushka’s fourth collaboration with SRK, opposite whom she had made her grand Bollywood debut in 2008. The two have romanced each other in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Jab Harry Met Sejal so far.
We will also see the Jab Tak Hai Jaan trio of SRK- Katrina – Anushka on screen for the second time. And we cannot wait to see them together in a film again. The film is slated to release on 21 December.
