Shah Rukh Khan: With Zero, I hope people understand how amazingly special it is to be ordinary

Shah Rukh Khan as vertically challenged Bauua Singh in Zero is all set to win hearts at the theaters. In an exclusive conversation  the 53-year-old actor says Zero is a film made with an idea of treating people as equals.

Here are some excerpts from the conversation:

Q. Zero romances and celebrates life. You are an epitome of romance. Was there a connection which Aanand L Rai saw?

When Aanand and Himanshu were narrating the story, the first thing they told me before the narration was that ‘Khan saab, what we want to do is take away from you all that you are known for and put you in a position, similarly for the other actors.’ For instance, Katrina is imposingly known for being a diva or doing dance numbers which are sizzling etc. Similarly, for Anushka, she is a very mercurial actor, I find her like that honestly. You go to that actor and say I am going to make you sit in a wheelchair dealing with a syndrome, but you would still be a heroine and object of romance.

So, I think that was very interesting. What Aanand wanted was something contrary to what we stand for but still fit into the parameters of a commercial, family film that has all the ingredients. Also, one thing he was very clear about was that he did not want any of us to search, ask or beg for empathy. (He said) Just let your incompleteness be celebrated. You should not look sad. The whole idea of equality is that you look at any of us, you should treat them  as equals. That is a message the film sends.
