MUMBAI—You could say Shah Rukh Khan (beleaguered by flops) and Aanand L. Rai (who is backing mostly successful films) have begun ‘2ZERO18’ (2018!) with a bang! The new Khan- Rai film has been finally titled “Zero.”

After ample speculation surrounding the title, the makers have finally “Zero”-ed in on a name, quite literally! This has, however, invited many witty jokes on social and websites, including the one that says that the makers have taken precautions that NOTHING can be subtracted from this title!

The makers took to announce the title on Jan. 1 (New Year) with a story that celebrates life. The title launched with a video digitally gives everyone a glimpse into one of the most awaited movies of the year.

The film, also starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, will see the superstar essay the role of a vertically challenged man – that is, a dwarf, in his first-ever collaboration with the director. It also reunites the trio of Khan, Sharma, and Kaif after “Jab Tak Hai Jaan,” though Rai assures us they are cast as per the needs of the script.

Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions come together to bring the film, set to release on Dec. 21, 2018.
