We have seen SRK shine in Darr, Baazigar, Swades or Chak De! India, the superstar has taken some major risks in his over 25-year-long career and his “gutsy” attitude made filmmaker Aanand L Rai believe in him.

The filmmaker and Shah Rukh have collaborated for the first time on the upcoming film Zero and the director said Shah Rukh still has a lot to offer as an actor. “I think he is a very gutsy actor from day one, he has always taken up challenges. And that is the reason I am with him. As a director, you should be prepared to take him on a journey and explore such a superstar. He says yes to subjects that are extraordinary and puts himself in a space that is new, yet different,” Rai told reporters.

The director is impressed by Shah Rukh Khan’s performance in the film, which also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. “This is a blessing that I got to work on a film like this with him. I am happy. He is an intelligent person to play this role. Who else can do this and get into the skin of a character like this? It is tough to take away those two feet, flamboyance, grace and still say ‘let’s romance’,” he added.

Shah Rukh Khan’s last release Jab Harry met Sejal did not work at the box office, but Rai is not worried about his film. “In a decade’s time, he will do so much as an actor but as a visionary, he will take the Indian cinema ahead. He doesn’t think like just as an actor. Do expect a lot of newer things as an actor. He has got great plans.”

“And with this man, if I feel stressed, (it is) not done. There is nervousness and I enjoy that. This is India’s biggest VFX film but you will hardly feel that. It will look like any other normal film and yet new, so that is what the VFX is all about.” Bollywood stars such as Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Juhi Chawla, Sridevi, Rani Mukerji, Kajol, Karisma Kapoor, among others have cameo appearances in the film. According to Rai, the actors are not placed in the film deliberately.

“It is a part of the story and it has not been done to increase or give the film a scale. The cameo parts are not done for the sake of it, they have been used (well). There is a reason for them to be a part of the film. They (the appearances) are not structured. It was a delight to have all of them in the film,” he said. Zero is scheduled to be released on December 21.
