One of the most-awaited films of 2018 - Zero finally released on Friday. The film stars Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The film mixed reviews from the audience and the critics. However, everyone is in love with SRK's character Bauua Singh and the way he acted in the movie. As a scientist, Anushka has impressed people and Katrina as an actress Babita Kumari left everyone transfixed.

The team had been working on this film for more than a year. The film was a long journey and included tough task like making Shah Rukh Khan's height shorter as he plays a vertically challenged man. Also, there was VFX work done in a lot of scenes in the second half to give the audience a larger than life experience whilc watching the movie.

While talking to Hindustan Times, Aanand L Rai talked about the journey of shooting the film. He said, "This has been such an exciting journey. This [Zero] was the toughest film for me, technically and emotionally, too."

The Tanu Weds Manu director added, "Right now, I feel a great vacuum. I am not nervous. The metre is broken. I am feeling sad. Now I won’t meet these characters again. Ye kahani ek hi baar sunai jaa sakti hai. I feel quite vulnerable right now."

Zero was Aanand L Rai and Shah Rukh Khan's first collaboration together and hence, there was a lot of excitement. Also, the film has a cameo by many stars like Salman Khan, Sridevi, Karisma Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Juhi Chawla and Deepika Padukone.

This is not ur movie Anand l Rai...definately not...we know ur work..u can't be so pathetic...this is mega superstar king of Bollywood Shahrukh khan's larger than life movie.

pic of ALR & Srk looks so creepy.....

Zero is absolutely not Anand's movie it looks more like SRK's brain in it that's why it bombed !!!!!

Don’t sell your self short Anand. You did a much better job with Ranjhana. That is your career best work and you will actually be remembered for that film not Zero. Even TWM series is something you should be proud of. You created something out of nothing. With Zero you had to compromise your artistic sensibilities and it was very obvious having watched the film.

Anand Rai needed a reality check. He has not been true to his craft and is smitten by bollywood's money and apparent star power. Such feudal "khan saab" utterances. This crap only happens in bollywood.

you read my mind babes! its a lesson to all good creative directors who fall for money & star power.

So true. He wasn’t true to his craft.

Lol I am sure Anand sir, you had to make these guys emote.. must have been draining.

Haha! Best comment of the day!
