Shah Rukh speaks up on Sridevi’s cameo in ‘Zero’
While promoting his upcoming film ‘Zero’ Shah Rukh Khan has opened up about late Bollywood actress Sridevi’s cameo in his film. In the film, King Khan is playing a role of a vertically challenged man.
Speaking to Zoom TV, Khan said, “it’s a privilege to have had Sridevi in the film.”
Besides Sridevi, Rani Mukherji, Alia Bhatt, Karisma Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are also making special appearances in ‘Zero’. Shah Rukh and Sridevi have gone back a long way and even worked together in a film, The Army. The length of the role doesn’t matter when you get a chance to witness a legend in action, one last time.
SRK recalled the memories when he started his acting career with The Army (1996), in which he shared the screen with the late actress, Sridevi.
“We wish she was alive and it would’ve been nicer. And now that you have mentioned it, I am just thinking, if we have a trial for the film, she would’ve been the first person, I would’ve called,” Khan added.
After appearing in English Vinglish in 2012, every big filmmaker wanted to cast her in their films but she refused most of these proposals and signed those where she could experiment with her characters. If she decided to play the villain in Vijay-starrer Puli (2015), she also said no to SS Rajamouli’s now larger-than-life Baahubali franchise. She was her own person.
The film ‘Zero’ is directed by Aanand L Rai, also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in lead roles and is all set to hit the theatres on December 21.
