The teaser of Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film ‘Zero’ was released on January 1 receiving praises from fans and followers worldwide particularly on the internet.
The ambitious film directed by Anand L Rai also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif and is set to be released on 21 December 2018.
However, a closer look at the reactions of people on Twitter showed how the trailer inspired many cracking jokes as well.
The clips shows Shah Rukh Khan in a never-seen-before avatar as his midget character makes a confident entry into the set.
Jokes and hilarious remarks ranged from how Salman Khan apparently rejected the movie “after knowing that it’s not based on his fan’s IQ level,” to the recent controversy surrounding Padmavati.
Twitterati also seems to have not forgotten Khan’s earlier misgiving ‘Happy New Year’.
These were some of the comments which started doing the rounds of the micro-blogging site soon after.
“After the #Padmavat verdict, SRK named his movie #ZERO so that the censor board cannot add, subtract, multiply, divide anything from the title,” said one user.
“SRK has given us Zero on Happy New Year once we had given him Zero (ratings) on Happy New Year,”
“SRK’s next movie is called Zero. It’s also the number of good movies he has done in last 5 years,”

#Zero was first offered to Salman bhai but he rejected it after knowing that it’s not based on his fan’s IQ level.

Naming his next movie #ZERO is a smart move by SRK. He’ll get free publicity throughout the year by petrol pump attendants who’ll say ‘Sir zero dekhna’

Shahrukh Khan is always copying Amitabh Bachchan.
Big B made Don, SRK made Don.
Big B made KBC, SRK made KBC.
Big B made a Zero, SRK is also making #Zero
