Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif provided her fans with a glimpse of her upcoming film “Zero”, in a look beyond her usual repute.
Decked up as in bridal garb, the photo posted by the actress on Instagram shows her profile view and ceremonial ornaments. The crew of the film can be seen in the background.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, the film sees Shah Rukh Khan play a dwarf, and apparently explores the journey of a vertically challenged man who travels from Meerut to New York.
Katrina and Anushka will star opposite SRK in the film. It was previously reported that Katrina plays a movie star in the film, and that Shah Rukh's character is her biggest fan. “I play an actress in the film, but I don't play myself,” DNA quoted the actress as saying. Kajol is also reported to have a cameo in the film.
“Zero”, which was conceived in 2012 by Rai, has had its share of setbacks. Principal photography for the film was originally scheduled to begin in December 2016, but got pushed back to May 2017. It had to go on a break soon after an accident on set left crew members injured. Katrina joined the cast in September, and it is also when Anushka Sharma began filming for it. The film is being shot mostly in Mumbai's Film City (where Katrina's latest photo is also from), and is said to be using visual effects extensively to make Shah Rukh appear three foot tall on screen. Fans got the first taste of that look, which is being achieved with a technique called forced perspective, when the film's teaser dropped on January 1 with a tiny Shah Rukh Khan dancing and singing in a party.
The film is set to release on December 21 this year.
