While the trailer of upcoming Shah Rukh Khan starrer ZERO has created a buzz, Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif has clarified that her character in ‘Zero’ did not derive inspiration from any industry whatsoever.
Reportedly, Katrina was said to have researched for her role by extensively reading about the trouble-filled lives that Hollywood actors Demi Moore and Lindsay Lohan are said to have faced.
“The only inspiration, the work that we did for creating this character was done between, Aanand sir, Himanshu (the film’s writer), and myself. There was no inspiration from any other industry. As per Aanand sir, I had everything needed for the role,” said Katrina while speaking to the media about her character.
When asked as to what she learned from the film, Katrina said, “Everyday I learned something. Every day I felt scared. I gained a lot from this film. We were trying to create something new together. For me as an actor, as a performer, I learned a lot.”
Replying to a question on whether the film portrays the victory of a common man or not, Director Anand L. Rai said that it is a story which shows how one should not take things for granted and how a common man fights his own self on his path to victory.
“This is about the victory of the common man. The title of the film is ‘Zero’, because there are a lot of things in life we tend to overlook and deem them as negligible, which I think is applicable to relationships too as we often take relationships for granted. This story is about a man who fights his own self on his path to victory,” said Rai.
The trailer of the movie takes you on a journey of Bauua Singh (played by SRK) – a vertically challenged man on a lookout for a bride. Katrina plays the role of an actress, battling alcoholism.
According to the makers, Bauua’s experiences with these women “take him on a journey to complete his ‘incompleteness’ and broaden his horizons to find a purpose he never knew he had.”
The Aanand L. Rai-directorial is all set to hit the big screens on December 21.
