The film titled Zero is directed by Aanand L Rai, of Tanu weds Manu and Raanjhanaa fame, and also starres Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.

The short clip released shows Shah Rukh in a never-seen-before avatar; as a dwarf. It shows Khan dancing to the popular old Hindi song ‘Hum Ko Tum Pe Pyar Aaya’ from the Shashi Kapoor starrer Jab Jab Phool Khile. The film looks extremely massy and very pan-India.
It is speculated that SRK will have a double role in the film and Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma will be seen playing the love interests.
The film has Aanand L Rai and Khan collaborating for the first time and has already created a lot of hype.
The film is slated to release on December 21, 2018.
