Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero may have fallen short of expectations at the ticket windows. Despite some favorable reviews and appreciation for the actor’s performance and VFX, it has not been able to even touch the 100-crore mark. The much worse Race 3 and Thugs Of Hindostan, starring Salman Khan and Aamir Khan respectively, made 170 and 151 crores at the ticket windows. This surely comes as a shock for fans and cine-goers.
However, there’s one department where SRK has beaten the two Khans and it’s the IMDb ratings. Thanks to, as mentioned above, some genuinely positive reviews, Zero has managed to fetch a respectable rating of 6.2. Meanwhile the other two turds, that also turned out to be two of the worst films of the year, have been slammed on the rating meter. Race 3 is rated at an all-time low 2.1 and Thugs at 3.5
We are waiting for that day when SRK recreates his on-screen magic and rules the Box-Office again!
