Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Romance, one of the most loved superstars in the world and one of the best actors India ever had. 2018 will see Shah Rukh Khan’s film Zero releasing on 21st December. Zero is SRK’s most ambitious movie till date and that’s why it is also very important for his career.
Shah Rukh is playing the role of a dwarf in the movie and he will be romancing Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero is a family entertainer. The trailer of Zero is now out and it has taken over the internet. Fans are going crazy and it is said to be a very well made trailer, hinting that it can give Shah Rukh a much awaited blockbuster box office success. The reviews so far for the trailer are extremely positive.
Now, one question is on everybody’s mind, from movie buffs to trade analysts, will Zero become Shah Rukh Khan’s Highest Grossing Film of All Time?
Well, we think it has a pretty good chance to do so. There are many reasons for it to become SRK’s top grosser. First of all, it’s Shah Rukh, so his gigantic fans will be making a tremendous crowd in theaters when it will be releasing. But more than that, we think it’s the combination of Shah Rukh Khan and director Aanand L Rai that will be the most vital reason why Zero can be SRK’s most successful film ever.
Rai is an astute director. He understands the taste of Indian movie-goers. With movies like Tanu Weds Manu, Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Raanjhanaa, he entertained the Indians and won over their hearts. Tanu Weds Manu Returns collected 150 crore at box office so you know how sharp understanding Aanand L Rai has about the desi audience.
Shah Rukh Khan’s films have always taken a record breaking opening but many of his movies have failed to sustain after an opening weekend in recent times. But, when Chennai Express was released, it was loved by everyone and it collected as much as the potential of the movie, 226 crore. Chennai Express is Shah Rukh Khan’s Top Grossing Film till now.
This sustainability will be provided by Aanand L Rai who will ensure that the film is entertaining and engaging throughout. All the highest grossing films run successfully for more than 2 weeks at box office; if Zero can do that, it will be unstoppable. Although Ranveer Singh’s Simmba is also releasing 1 week after Zero, it if can hold and gets positive recommendations from the crowd, it will be a huge success.
Shah Rukh Khan still has a magnanimous fan base and him doing such different role is a huge buzz-worthy aspect for Zero. Moreover, SRK romancing Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif is another high point which will sell tickets like anything. All these factors, if come together, will create such a big impact in theaters that Zero can easily beat Shah Rukh’s Chennai Express and even touch the 300 crore mark.
With Shah Rukh Khan’s popularity and Aanand L Rai’s credibility, Zero can ride high and can become SRK’s top grosser of all time, which his fans are expecting. It is also high time his movies start earning 300 crore at the Indian box office as his acting capabilities and popularity truly deserve it.
