This is how Shah Rukh’s dwarf character in Zero was made
In a very not-so-common event, Shah Rukh Khan has decided to release the behind-the-scenes footage of ‘Zero’ to show everyone what they have been wondering about, which is how the dwarf was created with the use of VFX. The last time, VFX was this big in a Shah Rukh film was in ‘Fan’ and that was justified because the character required it. It was also the last film that we thoroughly enjoyed with SRK in it. Even if it plays on TV, we still watch it.
Check out how ‘Zero’s VFX was done:
Sure, it’s great work and they went to all these great lengths to make this happen. But for what? Most people, who saw the teaser itself, knew that this would not work out. Then, the trailer came and it looked like a normal SRK love story. Now that the film has been released, we had a little hope that at least all these efforts would not go to waste. But, man! Like ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ and ‘Race 3’, ‘Zero’ was heavily criticised and panned by film critics. The box office so far has also proved how the audience was disappointed.
If only, SRK invested that much time and money into the script as much he did for the VFX! You know this was not the original script? It was tweaked a bit to adapt to SRK’s vision. It went a bit like ‘Dilwale’ did. It was also called ‘Katrina Meri Jaan’. We are guessing that was the case when Kat was hot property in Bollywood. Because she was signed all along and then the other heroine came in. Shah Rukh was still looking for the other lead actress and Deepika was also considered for the part, which later went to Anushka. She refused the role and then had to do a cameo to make SRK happy. No matter how big of a star you might be, you still cannot bruise a male superstar’s ego!
The only good thing that came out of ‘Zero’ is Katrina Kaif! Seriously! In a film that has Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan, Kat is the one who finally stood out. Hopefully, this makes up for the time everyone criticised her acting in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and praised Anushka to the skies. Rightly so, but Kat was pissed that people were criticising her because she’s pretty. Well, in this one, she looks great and was alright too.
Also, people were saying how Katrina’s role is similar to her in real life and what she went through with Ranbir Kapoor. We think that was done on purpose to drive you off. They even named her ex in the film as something Kapoor. When we saw it, the only actress that came to mind was Priyanka Chopra. Kat has always been disciplined and was not reported to be drunk on the sets or calling pack-up whenever she was in a bad mood. PC did that! She used to report drunk on the sets, but to be fair that was when her dad passed away and she ended her relationship with you-know-who soon after. You can say she was drinking her sorrows away and heck, she kept drinking all the way to Hollywood. That’s how we all pretty much confirmation on her affair, right? If she wasn’t drunk that day, it wouldn’t have happened. So, the character was her but the other things was borrowed from what other actresses went through.
