Two days ahead of the release of Zero, Shah Rukh Khan introduces his new co-star; ‘Cute toh hai ye’


Two days before the release of his upcoming film Zero, Shah Rukh Khan introduced a new character from the movie – a chimpanzee. SRK stars as a vertically-challenged man, Bauua Singh, in the Aanand L Rai-directed film. The poster, which SRK shared on his social media handles, features Bauua Singh and the chimpanzee, seated on the terrace of high-rise building - gazing at the stars.

“Aafia, Babita, Guddu, Ashok! Ye pehle hi kam the jo ye ek aur aa gaya! Par cute toh hai ye!,” SRK captioned the poster that has already piqued the interest of fans and has garnered over 5 lakh likes within hours of being made available online. The poster, no doubt, is making the wait impossible for the film. “OMG it's too cute... Sir u r creating more suspense... I can't wait for see this movie,” read a comment on the section. We agree.
