Zero actor Shah Rukh Khan: I feel like a loser all the time


Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero trailer is out and at the trailer launch of the movie, the Bollywood superstar was in good humour and engaged with the media in his usual witty fashion. After thanking his fans and the cast and crew of Zero, Shah Rukh said it was director Aanand L Rai’s dream to make Zero.

“We had our moments of doubts but it was only because of Aanand that we could make this film. He gave us so much confidence,” Shah Rukh said at the trailer launch of Zero.


Commenting on his two leading ladies, SRK said, “As an actor, I am insecure, happy, sad all the time and if it wasn’t for Katrina and Anushka, I wouldn’t have managed to do this tough task. They are very close to me, so much so, that I even scold them sometimes.”

When asked about the message of the film, Shah Rukh Khan said, “We all have moments when we feel like a zero. I asked AbRam to sit with me and he didn’t, so I felt like a zero and felt I have been a bad father (laughs). Over-confidence is the worst thing. So I always feel I am not good enough and so I work hard every day.”

The star also shared that he recently had a conversation with Thugs of Hindostan star Aamir Khan about the film and what it means to be a loser. “I feel like a loser all the time. I met Aamir Khan a few days back and he asked me why I keep thinking like that. After conversing (with him), I realised he thinks in the same way,” Shah Rukh shared.

Finally, when the topic veered towards impending weddings of Bollywood stars Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh; Shah Rukh said, “Masha allah sab shaadi kar rahe hai. Main kya karu begani shaadi mein abdullah deewana?”

“I am really happy about Deepika and Ranveer. I called her and wished her. Whenever someone gets married, it is a happy time. You feel like hugging them and blessing them,” Shah Rukh added.

Zero will release on December 21, 2018.
