The title was announced through a teaser which was essentially a throwback to the 80s giving the flawless feel of retro cinema complete with the grand sets and glazing lights. In Zero, SRK plays a dwarf and VFX plays a major role in the film.

Of casting Shah Rukh in Zero, Aanand L Rai said: "I had no option but Khan saab because I needed an intelligent actor, who also can carry that happy-go-lucky attitude". "There is a beauty in incompleteness we are celebrating".

Speaking about casting Khan in the film, he tells Mumbai Mirror that he needed a big star to take the story to audiences all over the world. So Khan sahab and I made a decision to give something to fans.

The one-minute long video shows a dwarf SRK entering what looks like a party hall and dancing with swag, even as Rafi's famous song, "Unko Humpe Pyaar Aya" from Jab Jab Phool Khile plays in the background. The movie also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. The film is being directed by Anand L Rai and has been produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.

Zero will mark the on screen reunion of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan trio - SRK, Anushka and Katrina. I know people think I want to get into a different league but when they see the film they will realise it's still about casting and not set-up.
