Zero actor Shah Rukh Khan is the king of Bollywood, talked about his high budgeted movies in an interview to Deccan Chronicle, he compared his films with his daughter, he said “I believe every film I do is like my daughter. People spend lavishly on their daughter’s wedding, so why can’t I spend on my film? Let whatever I am doing for my daughter, be nice, and inshallah, the money will follow.”
Zero earned Rs 200 crore in the box office but makers spent appx double amount for the movie. Shah Rukh believes in experimenting with his film choices which makes him the true king of Bollywood. He said “I have succeeded with things that I never knew would succeed. I also feel that if you really are the king, you should have the choice to make your own choices. A king without choices is not a king at all.”
Shah Rukh on his upcoming movie which will be on Rakesh Sharma’s biopic said “The project is expensive. In a bid to ensure that the film doesn’t exceed the budget, Kapur (producer Siddharth Roy Kapur) and Khan (Shah Rukh) find it imperative to start shooting by February. Doing so will help them wrap up the main schedule before summer. Given that certain crucial scenes must be filmed outdoors, the duo felt shooting in the bulky costumes would be impossible during those months” said with Mid-Day.
Shah Rukh thanked Aamir Khan for the role. “I thank Aamir [Khan] who was to do the film for calling me and telling me about the role as it would suit me. Whenever I get the time, I will try and spend time with him (Rakesh Sharma),” he said.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, also starred Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the movie Zero.
