Ever since Kamal Haasan directed Shah Rukh Khan in his 2000 hit movie Hey Ram, the duo shares a mutual respect and affection for each other. Kamal even went to name Shah Rukh’s character after one of his favorite actors Amjad Khan in the movie.
Now, Shah Rukh Khan, who is all set to star in Aanand Rai’s Zero, is planning to host a special screening of the movie for Kamal Haasan. Interestingly, Shah Rukh’s role in the movie, which will be of a dwarf, is similar to Kamal’s 1989 hit Appu Raja.
As per a source that was quoted saying to a leading daily, “Shah Rukh and Aanand Rai want Kamal’s opinion on the midget act in Zero. After all, Kamal’s Appu Raja is still the classiest midget act in Indian cinema. No matter what Shah Rukh achieves in this part, he will be compared with Kamal. Having Kamal on board for Zero is a sensible decision”.
Coming back to Zero, the movie, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma opposite Shah Rukh Khan, is all set to release on 21st December 2018.
