Zero starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif released on Friday across the cinemas worldwide. The movie carried tremendous hype, which has acquired a decent start on Friday but failed to take a much-needed jump on day 2. Now, it’s an alarming situation for the makers as the movie has slowed on third day i.e. on Sunday.
After collecting 38.36 crores in two days, Zero witnessed an ordinary Sunday. As per the early trends, the movie has made another 17-19 crores* on the third day, thus posting the total of 55.36-57.36 crores* at the box office.
Considering all the pre-release buzz, such numbers were expected to come in two days flat, but as the movie is performing below expectations since opening day and with mixed word-of-mouth is spreading like a wildfire, this romantic-drama is dipping at the ticket counters.
Directed by Aanand L. Rai, Zero features Shah Rukh Khan as a vertically challenged man named Bauua Singh, Katrina Kaif as a superstar Babita Kumari and Anushka Sharma as a scientist suffering from cerebral palsy, named Aafia Yusufzai Bhinder
A day before the release, the makers of the film released yet another interesting song Heer Badnaam, giving a glimpse into the troubled yet envied life of Katrina Kaif as Babita Kumari.
Katrina Kaif plays the role of a Bollywood Superstar Babita Kumari in the Aanand L Rai directorial Zero. Babita Kumari who leads an extremely glamorous life and is the heart-throb of the nation, however, battles her won issues. While the trailer gave glimpses into the alcoholic habits of the actress, the latest song further reveals facades of her character.
Releasing the song on social media, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Ye ishq nahi sab ka kaam, iss mein na jaane kitni Heer hui badnaam’.
The video showcases the relationship between Bauua played by Shah Rukh Khan and Babita Kumari. Bauua is seen taking care of the actress as she loses herself to alcohol.
