Bollywood filmmaker Aanand L. Rai has collaborated with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan for the upcoming film Zero. The filmmaker says the superstar has an energy and enthusiasm of a newcomer despite a career of over 25 years in filmdom.

“I am fascinated to see how a man with 25 years of a career, with so much success, fame, so many blockbusters, can still can have childlike energy. He did not burn out. He is the most obedient actor I have seen ever in my life. His energy on set is like a young boy doing his first film. I want to say that he is the best newcomer a director will get on the set… In fact, that is something I am trying to learn from him,” Rai told reporters in an interview.

Zero is all set to star many stars, which also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. Shah Rukh Khan plays a vertically challenged man in the film. Rai said the strenuous shoot of the film was made smooth by the talented cast.

“Physically, the shoot was very exhausting but the whole team had a great time working towards it because of the fact that I worked with a bunch of enthusiastic actors, and Khan saab is one of them.”

“He surprises me to an extent that at times it scares me to think whether as a director I am able to match up to his level of talent. He is an extraordinary man, not just as an actor but also as a human,” said the director.

About creative difference on set, the filmmaker said: “Well, Khan saab always has a way to say things, and he never says ‘I don’t do a scene like this’. His approach is always suggestive. He would say, ‘Shall we do it like this?’ His attitude towards people is so nice,” Rai said.

Rai says, his focus has always been on good stories and experimental subjects. His production Shubh Mangal Saavdhan was based on erectile dysfunction. With Zero, Rai is all set to experiment with the image of a superstar who is known for his romantic roles.

He talked about, “With experience, I have realised that audience is growing every year to accept more experimental cinema. There is a synergy between audience and filmmakers.

“As a film director, I cannot say there is no audience for a certain genre of story because a different group of audience is receptive towards a variety of stories. Now we have an audience to support a film like Baahubali and a content-heavy film like Newton in the same year.”

“We have a Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and a Lipstick Under My Burkha and both are appreciated by the audience. So I think the audience gives us the confidence to take the risk.”

The film Zero is all set to release on December 21.
