Zero starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. The trailer of the romantic comedy, which was released a few days back on SRK’s birthday received a stupendous response from the cinephiles, and it has raised the box-office expectations. If the box office predictions are to be believed, this film might help SRK reclaim his box office standing. And as far as the box office figures are concerned, Shah Rukh too doesn’t want to take any risk with the movie. The actor is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that Zero registers spectacular numbers at the box office.

It so happened that Riteish Deshmukh’s Marathi venture was releasing on the same date as Zero. King Khan requested the actor-director to change the release date of Mauli, so that Zero gets a solo release. Riteish in no time obliged to Shah Rukh’s request. An overwhelmed SRK, took to Twitter to share a heartwarming note while thanking the actor. He wrote,”Riteish Deshmukh, jab chota bhai bahut bada ho jaata hai. Thank you, baby for the love, respect and largesse of heart you showed me today. Grateful. Touched. I am so happy to have 'asked' something of a friend who kept my self-respect higher than his own need.”

Check out his tweet.

Well, Mauli is not the first film to change the release date in order to avoid clashing with SRK’s Zero, earlier,  Aquaman and The Accidental Prime Minister, which were supposed to clash with Zero had preponed their release dates. The release of Mauli would have impacted Zero’s box-office numbers in Maharashtra, where Marathi films are given preference during prime time as per a law by the Maharashtra Government.

Zero will hit the theatres on December 21.

Shark and Salman always had Diwali and rid releases.since Amir gave super duper hit dangal in December,near Christmas.now he is having film release near Christmas and Amir having on Diwali.seems it’s all planned between biggies, other actors and filmmakers are great who giving hits anytime of the year and hats off to them for feeling confident about their hard work and movies.no wonder khans moviesaking soo much money becoz audience is forced to watch them only.

but he never gives way to upcoming actors

That is super lame. If this tripe makes any money, the cast and crew should feel embarrassed. Hell, they should already feel ashamed for being part of this nonsense.

I guess SRK is not confident about his work or the movie. Others have to bear the brunt of movies releasing alongside theirs while he uses his power to secure solo releases. That’s unfair and cheating and why I got over my young woman crush over him. He does so many wrong things.

I’ll be avoiding zero for sure.. it’s unfair to have a solo release so that the public would watch only this film because this is the only one available.

How nice of Ritesh. SRK seems desperate to have a huge hit. I do understand but he should have confident on his work not have a solo release..

Zero k liye kuch v shah rukh????

SRK remember that time when you made fun of Bajirao Mastani. You thought that the movie would flop if it released on the same day as yours. Look what your arrogance did to you. Now...even begging Riteish Deshmukh for solo date.
