The Gangs of Wasseypur actor who himself has directed critically acclaimed movies like Paan Singh Tomar and Haasil will be seen playing Shah Rukh’s father in the film. The filmmaker said that he wanted to be a part of the project as he wanted to see how things are developed technically on such a scale.
“It’s a very technical film in which Shah Rukh is playing a character of a dwarf, so I wanted to see how it is made because when Kamal Haasan (Appu Raja) did it, he did that with folded legs as VFX facility wasn’t available,”
Rani Mukerji, Kajol, and SRK will be sharing screen space together after 19 long years in Zero. Yes, you read that right. The trio, who was earlier seen together in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, will next be seen in Rai’s film.
