It appears that the Khans are having a poor year at the box office, as Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero has joined the list of flop films by the renowned trio of actors this year.
Zero is a 2018 Indian romantic comedy-drama film directed by Aanand L. Rai and produced by Colour Yellow Productions in conjunction with Red Chillies Entertainment. It was written by Himanshu Sharma and directed by Aanand L. Rai. T-Series released the soundtrack, which was created by Ajay-Atul with lyrics written by Irshad Kamil.
Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma, is about Bauua Singh, a short guy from Meerut who, after struggling to find a marriage partner, meets Aafia Bhinder, an NSAR (a fictional space research institution) scientist with cerebral palsy.
However, cinema superstar Babita develops feelings for him, putting his first relationship to the test, before their love triangle leads them to far-flung cities, propelling Bauua into an odyssey to find both genuine love and fulfillment in a life lived to the fullest.
Zero is Khan’s most expensive film, with a budget of Rupees 200 crore (US$27 million), and was created by Rai in 2012, before pre-production began in 2016. It started out as Katrina Meri Jaan and went through a number of name changes before settling on the final title in early 2018. Principal photography started in Mumbai in May 2017 and ended in Orlando in 2018.
On December 21, 2018, Zero was released to mixed reviews from critics. The film’s visual effects and Khan and Kaif’s performances were praised by critics, while the storyline was criticized for being uneven. Though it failed to return its investment and was a box office catastrophe.
