Being in this year’s much awaited release, the news of Abhay Deol also joining Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Anushka Sharma for Aanand L Rai’s ‘Zero’ has only added to the excitement. However, apparently Deol’s role will be a short one.
“”I have a cameo in Zero, it’s very brief, I didn’t have much to do, I did have a scene with Shah Rukh and of course Katrina. I don’t think I can say much about it now. It was nice to see her again after ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ (2011)” Pinkvilla reports Deol expressing.
Though he remained tight lipped about his character, a source revealed how he will be seen as Kaif’s love interest, as they explained, “Abhay plays the boyfriend who dumps Katrina in the film. He will shoot most of his scenes with her. Even though it’s a cameo, he agreed to do it instantly because of his relationship with Aanandji, with whom he has had successful collaborations like ‘Raanjhanaa’ (2013) and ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ (2016).”
They went on to further reveal details about Khan, Kaif and Sharma’s characters too, “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.”
They went on to add, “While everyone knows Katrina plays a diva, nobody knows that she is also an alcoholic in the film. 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.”
‘Zero’ releases this December.
