Shah Rukh Khan will be soon seen in Aanand L Rai directed ‘Zero’.

The director believes that Shah Rukh Khan may have become a superstar but the actor still is the same Delhi boy at heart with humble beginnings and it was this quality that made him even more endearing for the filmmaker’s next ‘Zero’.

In Zero, Shah Rukh Khan portraying characters in love stories set abroad, plays a vertically challenged man who travels from Meerut to New York.

Aanand said, “I always felt he is a very basic Delhi boy. Whenever I saw him in those valleys of Switzerland, I felt, the Delhi boy has achieved great heights. I never felt he didn’t belong there.”
“That is the reasons why I think he has a great connect in our country because he represents a basic middle class boy who has achieved it,” he added.
