Shah Rukh Khan had high hopes from Zero, wherein he experimented with playing a dwarf character. However the box office debacle seems to have affected the actor a lot. Shah Rukh is taking time to announce his next film and is in no mood for hasty decisions. In an interview with CRI Hindi in China the actor revealed, “I said somewhere that I might decide in June about my next project. But I won’t even do it in June, I will only do a film when I feel like doing it from my heart. I only act when it comes from my heart, but this time I don’t feel like doing it. A lot of people are telling me stories, I’ve heard 15-20 stories, I liked 2-3 of them. But I haven’t decided yet which film to do. Because the moment I take a decision, I will have to start working on films. I will completely be engrossed in it.”
Shah Rukh Khan had signed up for Rakesh Sharma’s biopic, which was handed down to him by another superstar Aamir Khan. However, earlier this year reports suggested that SRK has dropped out of that film too. Rumours were rife that Shah Rukh is planning to return with the third instalment of Don with Farhan Akhtar, however the actor-director duo haven’t announced anything regarding that either. Speaking about his future plans, SRK revealed that he wants to spend more time with family, “This time, I didn’t feel like doing it. I thought, this time, I will take out time to watch films and listen to scripts and read books. My kids are also finishing their college life. Suhana is still in college, Aryan will hopefully pass his college in a year. I want to spend more time with my family.” Zero seems to have disheartened the passionate actor and he is taking calculated steps before announcing his next film.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero was recently screened in China, at the Beijing International Film Festival. The actor further revealed that he had become detached from the movie since its release, “If the audience didn’t like it, then so be it, there’s nothing that can be done,” SRK said. Directed by Anand L Rai, Zero featured Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
