Aanand L Rai on ‘Zero’: “Will ensure the film delivers more than what it is promising”


Aanand L. Rai who is currently working on his latest project ‘Zero’, has said that the film will exceed expectations.

Reported on Mid-day, Rai who was attending a special screening for ‘Baa Baaa Black Sheep’, said “I am getting really good feedback but this time. I am trying to give the audience things which are coming from my heart and with Shah Rukh sir, I think, I am being able to achieve that. The kind of fun we all are having while making this film is what I always look for… I still require two months for the completion of the shoot, but I will ensure that the film delivers more than what it is promising.”

Talking about the cast having fun on set, and the small snippets shared by the actors on social media, he says it’s good to see everyone in high spirits. Shah Rukh Khan mentioned in an Instagram post that Katrina Kaif is his ‘Media Manager’.  “Katrina is having fun doing all this. I think ‘Zero’ is technically and emotionally a difficult film, so it required that kind of individuals who can create a fun atmosphere on the film set and that is what Katrina is doing. It is so nice of her and entire team to have this kind of atmosphere all around.”

With regards to his most recent releases, such as ‘Shubh Mangal Savadhan’ (2017), ‘Mukkabaaz’ (2017) and ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ (2016), Rai is happy that they have been enjoyed by the audiences. “I always wanted to associate myself with those films which could give audience a different kind of light,” said Rai.

Speaking about his other film ‘Manmarziyaan’, and will be bringing Abhishek Bachchan back to our screens, Rai explains why he doesn’t consider this to be Bachchan’s ‘comeback film’.  “I don’t know why people are terming it as his comeback film. He was always there. I think it is good for actors also to take gaps as per their wish. He is a talented actor. I always wanted to collaborate with Abhishek and with this script, we are working together under Anurag Basu’s direction.”

‘Zero’ which will be a romantic drama, see’s Khan in a dwarf avatar and also stars Anushka Sharma. The film is slated to release on the 21st December.
