Speaking of the film, Shah Rukh will be seen as Bauua Singh, a short, 38-year-old man from Meerut who has trouble finding a marriage partner. After using matrimonial agencies, he eventually finds his companion in Aafia Bhinder, a NASA scientist with cerebral palsy. 

However, at the same time, leading female superstar Babita also gets close with him, testing his first relationship. A love triangle forms between the three, taking them to far-off cities and thrusting Bauua on an adventure to discover both his true love and the measure of a man's true worth.

'Zero' is written by Himanshu Sharma and directed by Aanand L Rai. It has been jointly produced by Colour Yellow Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment's Gauri Khan and also features Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif, Abhay Deol, R Madhavan, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub among others. 

Not many know that initially Salman Khan was approached by the makers to play the lead in the film. However, the role later went to Shah Rukh.

Shah Rukh is the fifth actor of normal stature in Indian cinema to play a little person after Kamal Haasan in 'Apoorva Sagodharargal', Johnny Lever in 'Aashiq', Jagathy Sreekumar in 'Athbhutha Dweepu' and Anupam Kher in 'Jaan-E-Mann'.
